Nine Ambulances Rush to Abortion Facilities in Six States

By Cheryl Sullenger

New York City, NY — There have been a disturbing number of medical emergencies at abortion facilities reported by pro-life activists since late September, including nine ambulance incidents in six states.

“These incidents illustrate that the Abortion Cartel’s claims of abortion safety fail the reality test. For the women who have suffered serious injuries and death from botched abortions, all that rhetoric means nothing,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The emergencies that we hear about are only a fraction of what is happening, and do not count abortion emergencies where women have been hospitalized after the left the abortion facility for the day. These serious incidents are ignored by the news media, which does women a disservice by concealing the truth about abortion dangers from them.”


Bakersfield: For the sixth time this year, an ambulance was called to the FPA Women’s Health abortion facility on October 3, 2017, as earlier reported by Operation Rescue. A 23-year old woman suffered a perforated uterus and underwent an emergency hysterectomy to save her live once at the hospital.

Walnut Creek: An ambulance was called to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Walnut Creek, CA, on October 6, 2017, a known surgical abortion day. Witnesses described the woman as looking “upset” as she was bought out of the Planned Parenthood abortion building and loaded into an ambulance.


Omaha: Nebraskans United for Life report that an ambulance rushed to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility on October 2, 2017. A gurney was taken in to the facility, but the patient refused transport to the hospital. However, it must have appeared her condition was dire at one point, or an ambulance would never have been called.

Bellevue: With lights from the ambulance flashing in the background, one pro-life activist recorded a brief clip of an incident at LeRoy Carhart’s Bellevue abortion business at approximately 7:00 p.m. on October 6, 2017. 911 records indicated a fire alarm had been tripped, but an eye witness says he saw a gurney removed from the facility with someone on it. This remains a bit of a mystery. This is the 16th ambulance spotted at a Carhart abortion business since 2012.


New York City: On September 29, 2017, at about 4:40 p.m., one pro-life activist stopped by the Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood to pray when an ambulance was spotted. The woman was brought out of the facility in a wheelchair because gurneys cannot access the abortion procedure floors in the New York high-rise. She was transported to a nearby hospital. This was the seventh such emergency at this particular abortion facility so far this year.


Raleigh: The first day they were able to do abortions in a week due to “doctor unavailability,” A Woman’s Choice called an ambulance to transport a patient on October 13, 2017. Apparently this is something that happens there regularly enough that the staff was prepared with a large purple “sheet of shame” to block pro-life activists from photographing the incident. (It didn’t really work.)

This facility had a series of failed inspections from 2013 to 2017. The most recent deficiency report indicated a likely incomplete surgical abortion that required a second surgery to complete.


Cleveland: An ambulance arrived at the Preterm abortion facility on September 29, 2017 at around 2:00 p.m., as previously reported by Operation Rescue. The woman was wheeled out of Preterm on a gurney. Emergency responders took an additional 10 minutes to stabilize her in the ambulance before transporting her to a hospital emergency room. In 2014, Lakisha Wilson died from a severely botched abortion she received at Preterm. The September incident was the ninth emergency documented at Preterm by Operation Rescue since 2015.


Houston: According to the Houston Coalition for Life, an ambulance and fire engine were photographed at the large Planned Parenthood abortion facility on Gulf Freeway on October 3, 2017. Once woman was transported.

Houston: The next day, on October 4, 2017, another ambulance visited the same Planned Parenthood abortion facility and transported one woman with lights and sirens flashing, the Houston Coalition for Life reports.


So far in 2017, Operation Rescue has documented 51 incidents where ambulances were called to abortion facilities around the nation. Of those 51 incidents, two-thirds (34) involved Planned Parenthood abortion facilities.

    I do believe Congress gave P.P. $ 500 Million , to KILL INNOCENT BABIES .

    please start giving us some REAL statistics and minimize the “pro-life” rhetoric to make it easier for argument sake. It is VERY hard to take a stand based on political view as it shuts down most people who believe that they know facts.

    Example (not real numbers)> there are 187 abortion clinics in the US that provide XX surgical abortions per month. There are YY ambulances called and ZZ emergency services required due to life threatening complications from surgical abortion at these clinics.

    Therefore there are AA% life threateningly failed surgeries annually. The life threatening Acceptable failure rate for elective surgeries in the US is ZZ%.

    Conclusion: there are no insurance underwriters that will openly write a policy for a failure rate of over DD% (there is a KNOWN number that some underwriter could tell you)

    These kind of numbers can be taken to any law maker and even state enforcement departments over medical care. Rhetoric is cheap and arguable, stats are NOT arguable if done properly and taken from actual verified sources where possible.

    Not only that should the actual KNOWN number become apparent to insurers they may just refuse to insure these clinics…therefore winning the game before anyone can even play!

    These stats are very hard to come by as abortion clinic due their best to over them up. Sorry but you cannot take the political out of the argument. Even one is murder. Its just that simple.

  • dje3

    Then by definition you lose the argument with those that do not believe as you do because it is ONLY an argument to them. It is TOTALLY political at that point and can be nothing else to you or to them. The difference is caring about them and understanding WHY they are in wrong think.
    Lets look at this another way. When Islam was attempting to expand into Europe they gave a choice at each village they took. Accept Islam or die. Most accepted Islam and many of them were killed anyway. However, most that lived returned to Christianity as soon as they could. Religion and politics are two sides of the same pomegranate.
    The real issue is that there ARE stats and probably each state requires them to be kept at all times! Those that can not accept STATS and logic and then determine what is right and just can never be helped. If we attempt to just say its wrong and must stop and not give stats then WE are wrong (accept Islam or die).
    Example of stats, we know that breast cancer affects women who aborted a child at significantly higher rate than women who do not. We also know that multiple abortions increases that risk significantly and that carrying your children to birth reduces that risk (especially when the children are breast fed!)

    So all I am saying is that there are thousands of very positive stats out there for having a chid and almost none that are positive for aborting. We need to show that we are NOT about just holding our ground but about understanding the entire issue…other wise there is NO conversation that can ever open into dialogue.

    An ambulance carried out a woman from Hartford GYN abortion mill yesterday morning, October 21. She had a sheet over her head. Is this common?

  • Thanks for letting us know. If you have pictures , please send them to us. And yes, it is common.
