Butcher of Bellevue Strikes Again, But This Time, Public Recording of the Abortion Emergency is Blank

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bellevue, NE – Something went terribly wrong at LeRoy Carhart’s Bellevue, Nebraska abortion facility on Friday May 4, 2018. An ambulance, fire unit, and another emergency response vehicle, were summoned to the Abortion and Contraceptive Clinic of Nebraska (AACCON) at around noon for a woman who was brought out of the abortion facility covered completely in a white sheet.

This is the seventeenth such medical emergency documented by Operation Rescue at a Carhart abortion facility in the past five years. This is the sixth known incident at his Nebraska facility. He hospitalized ten women, including one patient who died from her injuries, while he worked at Germantown Reproductive Health Center in Germantown, Maryland. That facility closed last year.

Carhart, who is 76, opened his own abortion facility, AbortionClinics.org, specializing in late-term abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy in Bethesda. Maryland, in October 2017. Just days after that facility opened, Carhart called for emergency transport of yet another abortion patient.

“Carhart has long had a reputation of being a sloppy abortionist, but in recent years, his incompetence has appeared to have grown,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We have reason to believe he poses a serious danger to the public.”

Operation Rescue attempted to obtain the radio traffic from the May 4 incident in Bellevue, but suspiciously the audio files available were completely blank. In the past, such recordings have been openly available to the public and contained busy radio traffic, including information about dispatches to Carhart’s facility. (Review one example.)

A formal public records request for the 911 records has been submitted.

“One frightening thing is that Carhart is reportedly training new abortionists at his Bellevue facility,” said Newman. “We don’t need new abortionists, and we certainly don’t need any that have been trained by this abortion hack. If Carhart’s trainees go into the abortion business, we are sure to see more women and babies to suffer and die from Carhart’s brand of incompetent abortions.”

One such woman, believed to be an abortionist in training, was present during the May 4 emergency. As if she may have something to hide, she takes more extreme measures to block her identity than has been previously seen at this facility, according to local pro-life activists.

Carhart is one of the few abortionists who openly conduct abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy, although more do so in secret.

“Our calls for a full and honest investigation of Carhart have fallen on deaf ears in Nebraska and Maryland. How many more women must suffer or die until states begin to protect the public from this dangerous man?” said Newman.

Botched Abortion at Little Rock Abortion Facility Leads Discovery of 60 Such Emergencies

By Cheryl Sullenger

Little Rock, AR – A medical emergency that took place last month at Little Rock Family Planning, an abortion facility located in Little Rock, Arkansas, has opened the door to learn more about a dangerous increase in life-threatening abortion complications at that facility since the start of 2018.

It began on March 31, 2018, when pro-life activists photographed an ambulance at Little Rock Family Planning.

Pro-life activist Mary Silfies told Operation Rescue that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for 911 records related to the incident was denied by the Little Rock City Attorney “because it involved a juvenile.”

A second FOIA request was made to the publicly-funded ambulance company, Metropolitan Emergency Medical Services (MEMS), which complied with a heavily redacted audio recording and Computer Aided Dispatch printout.

A close inspection of the CAD printout revealed under one of the redactions that the young patient suffered hemorrhaging and lacerations.

The 911 recording, which had information about the patient’s condition removed, indicated that the patient was located “in the procedure room with the doctor.” This was an indication that the patient’s condition was serious, otherwise, she would have been sent to the side or back door of the abortion facility for ambulance pick-up.

However, the recording did contain a revealing question at the end of the conversation between the 911 dispatcher and the abortion facility caller.

“Alright, do you have AED there,” asked the dispatcher, to which the call replied in the affirmative.

AED is short for “automated external defibrillator,” which is used to check a patient’s heart rhythm and can send a shock to restore a normal heartbeat. It is also used in the event of a cardiac arrest.

“The fact that the dispatcher was inquiring about the presence of the AED was another indication that young woman was in pretty bad shape,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

In addition, Silfies also was able to obtain a printout that contained all service requests for ambulances to the abortion facility’s address that contained 61 incidents dating back to 1999. One of the incidents included in the printout was for a different location, leaving 60 calls originating from the Little Rock Family Planning abortion facility over the past 19 years.

In all 60 cases, including the emergency involving the juvenile on March 31, 2018, patients were transported to the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences (UAMS) Hospital for emergency medical care that could not be provided at the outpatient abortion facility.

This data shows that an average of medical emergencies requiring emergency ambulance transport from Little Rock Family Planning is just over three per year.

However, there have already been four such emergency transports in the first three months of 2018 alone. This put the abortion facility on track for a record-breaking number of abortion injuries.

“Whatever is going on at the Little Rock Family Planning is posing a serious danger to women,” said Newman. “With these incidents on the rise, women must be warned that if they walk into that abortion facility, they may come out on an ambulance gurney. This place is just not save for women or their babies. It should be shut down!”

911 Records: Boston Planned Parenthood Patient Suffered Post-Abortion Hemorrhage

By Cheryl Sullenger

Boston, MA — More has been learned about a medical emergency transport of an African-American patient from Planned Parenthood on Boston on March 28, 2017 that was earlier reported by Operation Rescue.

According to newly-obtained 911 records that pertained to the response of a Fire Engine Unit 41, a 34-year old woman underwent an abortion procedure then began to hemorrhage.

According to the documents, abortionists at the Planned Parenthood facility were able to get the bleeding under control, but the patient’s condition still required additional hospital treatment that the abortion facility could not provide.

Boston EMS assumed control of patient care are once they arrived at the Planned Parenthood facility. The Fire Engine unit provided no care for the patient, and had only been dispatched to provide first aid until the EMS unit could arrive.

This is the fifth know medical emergency at the Boston Planned Parenthood over the past few years. So far in 2017, there have been 15 medical emergencies documented at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities nationwide.

“As Congress is attempting to defund Planned Parenthood, I urge House Speaker Paul Ryan to consider the women and innocent babies who are being maimed and killed at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities. The shoddy treatment women receive at these so-called ‘clinics’ is being enabled with our tax dollars. Most Americans find that morally and ethically reprehensible. Congress, in part, bears responsibility for the human misery inflicted by Planned Parenthood due to their inability to act,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

Operation Rescue published a video earlier this year featuring just 18 of the known 42 medical emergencies that have been documented since January 2016, including the death of Cree Erwin-Sheppard, who died as the result of a botched abortion she received at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan on June 30, 2016. She suffered for three days in excruciating pain from an untreated uterine perforation before succumbing to her injuries.

Last week, Newman sent an urgent letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan exhorting him to immediately defund Planned Parenthood.

Virginia Beach Planned Parenthood Hospitalizes Second Woman in a Month

By Cheryl Sullenger

Virginia Beach, VA — For the second time in the span of a month, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has hospitalized another patient.

On April 7, 2017, an ambulance was called to Planned Parenthood for a 22-year old who was bleeding so severely that she needed emergency hospital care. Pro-life supporters snapped photos as an African American woman was wheeled out the Planned Parenthood’s back door and into an awaiting ambulance.

Emergency radio dispatch communications, obtained by Operation Rescue, verified that the woman was bleeding.

An earlier incident took place at this same Planned Parenthood facility on March 2, 2017, when an unconscious African-American patient was transported to a nearby hospital.

The most recent emergency represents the 15th time that a Planned Parenthood patient has been transported for urgent medical care that the abortion facility was unequipped to provide.

Overall, it is the 26th documented emergency at any abortion facility nationwide so far this year.

The abortionist on duty during the April 7 incident was an unknown female provider who has an aversion to being photographed.

“We are reporting on these abortion-related injuries too often — sometimes several times per week. How many more women must suffer life-threatening injuries or death before America wakes up and realizes that the brutal and violent process of abortion hurts women and kills their babies,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We urge Congress to move swiftly to defund Planned Parenthood as soon as possible, and stop our tax money from benefiting a business that maims women and destroys the lives of innocent babies.”

Planned Parenthood Abortion Facilities Hospitalize Two More Patients

By Cheryl Sullenger

Virginia Beach, VA – Operation Rescue has learned that two Planned Parenthood abortion facilities have recently transported two African American patients to emergency rooms in two states.

Planned Parenthood in Boston, Massachusetts, called 911 for an emergency transport of an African American female patient on March 28, 2017. Photos taken on the scene by The Boston Rescuer show the patient slightly inclined on a gurney as she is being readied for ambulance transport.

This is the fifth medical emergency transport from the Boston Planned Parenthood documented by Operation Rescue. No further information about her condition is available.

However, much is known about another incident that took place on March 2, 2017, at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

An ambulance and fire unit responded to a call placed at 5:49 p.m. for an unconscious African-American patient. The Planned Parenthood worker called for emergency assistance because there was no doctor on the scene.

Louantha Kerr, a prolife activist who photographed the incident, saw abortionist David Peters return to the Planned Parenthood facility just minutes after the ambulance arrived. He had left the abortion facility before all patients had been discharged so he could get to A Tidewater Women’s Health Clinic (ATWHC), an abortion facility in Norfolk, where more abortion patients waited.

ATWHC abortion facility is approximately 10 minutes driving time from the Planned Parenthood in Virginia Beach. When he returned to the Planned Parenthood facility, he left a “parking lot full” of patients.

Peters, a former employee of the notorious New Jersey abortionist Steven Chase Brigham, is known to work at abortion facilities in four communities, often pulling double shifts.

Shoddy practices appear to be habitual with Peters. In 2001, while in Brigham’s employment, Peters was charged by the Virginia Board of Medicine for prescribing drugs “outside of a bona fide practitioner-patient relationship, as required by law.” He further “authorized the prescriptions without obtaining a medical or drug history, performing a comprehensive physical examination, providing information about the benefits and risks…and without initiating additional interventions and follow-up care.”

It took the Virginia Medical Board six years to issue discipline. Peters was reprimanded for those violations and ordered to take supplemental education courses.

After the March 2, 2017, incident, Kerr lodged a formal complaint with the Virginia Department of Health concerning Peters and his hectic schedule that often leaves surgical abortion patients still in recovery without a physician present.

Kerr was notified by the Virginia Department of Health in a letter dated March 21, 2017, that an investigation was conducted and that her allegations were, in fact, substantiated. However, there would be no action taken against Peters because the Department found no “deficiency” in deserting surgical abortion patients before they were stabilized.

“Unfortunately, we are seeing that African-American women are the ones injured and killed at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities, mainly because Planned Parenthood primarily targets Black communities for abortion,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “That says a lot about Planned Parenthood — and none of it is good.”

Operation Rescue released a chart last week detailing 37 known medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities since January 2016. The total is now to 39, including the death of Cree Erwin-Sheppard, who succumbed to a fatal uterine perforation received at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan, on June 30, 2016.

Please contact your Congressman and Senators and urge them to completely defund Planned Parenthood.
