St. Louis, MO – The St. Louis Fire Department has settled a lawsuit brought by Operation Rescue in 2013, which sought to obtain public information related to documented medical emergencies at the Planned Parenthood of Greater St. Louis abortion facility.

Instead of the 31 expected emergencies that required ambulance transport, the St. Louis Fire Department provided Operation Rescue with a list of 58 medical emergencies, categorized by type of problem and priority level that took place at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility between January 1, 2009, and April 16, 2016.

The suit was necessary because the St. Louis Fire Department had refused to comply with the group’s repeated requests for public information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

“We consider this settlement a victory since we were able to obtain a true listing of medical problems that sent women to the hospital from Planned Parenthood. Since Planned Parenthood receives public tax funding, the public has a right to know that women are being hurt there,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The information provided to us shows that the situation is far worse than we originally suspected, and proves that the St. Louis Planned Parenthood facility is too dangerous to operate. It should be shut down immediately.”

Of the 58 calls for emergency assistance placed by Planned Parenthood beginning in 2009, there were 50 Urgent Priority 1 emergencies. This would include life-threatening conditions.

By far, hemorrhage of a dangerous or possibly dangerous nature was the most common complication with 23 reported incidents.

Medical problems for which ambulances were dispatched to Planned Parenthood included the following:

• Abdominal Pain – 2 incidents
• Allergic Reaction – 1 incident
• Fainting (Alert and Not Alert) – 6 incidents
• Fall – 4 incidents
• Hemorrhage (Dangerous or Possibly Dangerous) – 23 incidents
• Interfacility Emergency – 4 incidents
• Pregnancy Unknown Status – 2 incidents
• Psychiatric/Suicidal – 3 incidents
• Seizure – 3 incidents
• Sick – 5 incidents
• Stroke – 1 incident
• Unconscious Person – 1 incident

Ambulances were also called for three incidents of serious bleeding, one of which took place in the third trimester of pregnancy, indicating that late-term abortions are being done at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood.

“It is possible that not all of the incidents were abortion-related, but it is clear that the vast majority were abortion complications,” said Newman.

Operation Rescue never sought the identities of women who were hospitalized by the Planned Parenthood abortion facility, which was not equipped to handle the numerous complications.

Not included in the list was a medical emergency that took place at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood facility on Friday, May 13, 2016. Operation Rescue has placed a public records request for information about this incident.

“We expect that the St. Louis Fire Department will now comply with the law and release the information to us,” said Newman.

America’s Most Dangerous: St. Louis Planned Parenthood Hospitalizes 31st Abortion Patient in 7 Years

St. Louis, MO — Mary Maschmeier, President of Defenders of the Unborn, has reported that an abortion patient of the Planned Parenthood facility in St. Louis, Missouri, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital on Friday, May 13, 2016, at about 3:00 p.m.

Maschmeier told Operation Rescue that the patient suffered a “botched” abortion that represents the 31st abortion-related medical emergency documented at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood since 2009. Operation Rescue has declared it among the most dangerous abortion facilities in America.

“The public has the right to know why so many women are being maimed at this abortion center, especially in light of the fact that Planned Parenthood continues to receive tax dollars,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

That Planned Parenthood office is the only remaining abortion facility in Missouri.

It recently came under investigation by the Missouri Interim Senate Sanctity of Life Committee, which discovered that aborted baby remains from that facility were being illegally dumped in Indiana.

The committee issued subpoenas to Mary Kogut, CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region, and James Miller, owner of Pathology Services Inc., (the pathology company used by Planned Parenthood’s high volume St. Louis abortion facility), seeking information about tissue disposal policies as well as the numerous medical emergencies that regularly occur at the St. Louis facility.

At first Kogut and Miller resisted the subpoenas, but once contempt proceedings were initiated by the State Senate, Kogut capitulated and agreed to turn over documents. Miller, whose pathology business would have been responsible for shipping the aborted baby remains out of state, took advantage of his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself.

Little is known about the nature of most of the medical emergencies that take place at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood, including the most recent incident. Emergency 911 records can shed light on why women are being injured, but these records have been denied to Operation Rescue by the St. Louis Fire Department. In order to preserve the right of the public to access public records, Operation Rescue sued to access the 911 records. That case is ongoing.

“The St. Louis Planned Parenthood continues to hospitalize suffering women at an alarming rate,” said Newman. “We look forward to the day when the full truth is finally told about abuses at this barbaric abortion mill, and it is shut down once and for all.”
