Chicago Planned Parenthood Patient “Bleeding Excessively” After Abortion is 81% More Likely to Suffer Mental Health Issues

By Cheryl Sullenger

Chicago, IL — A Chicago area Planned Parenthood abortion facility that opened just last year has hospitalized an abortion patient who suffered excessive bleeding that the staff struggled unsuccessfully to control.

An employee of Planned Parenthood’s Roseland Health Center, located on Halstead St. in Chicago, placed a call to 911 seeking an ambulance on May for a 34-year old woman who had just had an abortion.

“We need an ambulance at 11250 South Halsted,” the clinic worker told the 911 dispatcher. “A patient just had a surgical abortion and she is bleeding excessively. They’re trying to stop the bleeding now.”

“It’s time to stop pretending abortion is safe,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We have documented over 35 medical emergencies at abortion facilities just this year, and we know we are only seeing a small fraction of the actual number. Women deserve to know the true dangers of abortion that are constantly being downplayed by Planned Parenthood.”

Nearly half of all medical emergencies at abortion facilities documented by Operation Rescue take place at Planned Parenthood facilities. Serious abortion complications experienced by women during these emergencies include hemorrhaging, lacerations, perforated uteri, seizures, breathing difficulties, heart issues (including cardiac arrest), and death.

One recent study conducted by the pro-abortion University of California San Francisco indicates that there are nearly 6,000 women per year who visit emergency rooms after abortions. However, that number may be much larger due to the way the study under-reported other data.

For example, that study indicated that there were 15 women who died from abortion complications from 2009-2013, but the Center for Disease Control records indicate there were actually 36 – over twice the study’s figures. Based on its own research, Operation Rescue believes that the number of maternal deaths could be even higher since abortion facilities may not be inclined to report such a potentially damaging incident.

“Even if the study is suspect, 6,000 women or more who require emergency care after abortions is a lot of women,” said Newman. “For those 6,000 women, abortions is far from safe.”

But perhaps the most shocking statistic coming out of that study was that women who have abortions are 81% more likely to suffer mental health issues than those who keep their babies.

“While the study’s conclusions appear to understate the real dangers of abortion, their figure related to mental health issues in women who abort, taken at face value, is still staggering,” said Newman. “When we think of what that means to post-abortive women like the one hospitalized in Chicago in May, it is just heartbreaking. Women are so much better off — physically and mentally — having their babies!”

911 Redactions Cover Up Serious Medical Emergency at “Abortionist to the Stars” Clinic

By Cheryl Sullenger

Beverly Hills, CA – When a patient at the Pro-Choice Medical Center in Beverly Hills, California, suffered a medical emergency, an employee of the swank late-term abortion business placed a call for help to 911.

However, when Operation Rescue received the recording via a public records request, only about 30 seconds of the four-minute conversation could be heard. The other 3 minutes and 30 seconds were filled with a series of beeps, indicating redactions in the recording.

The incident took place on April 23, 2018, at 2:03 p.m. In the parts of the recording that actually contained information, a clinic worker indicated that the emergency involved a “patient who was sent to us. . .”

The 911 dispatcher placed the caller on hold while he dispatched paramedics and later returned to reassure her that paramedics were on the way.

A Computer Aided Dispatch transcript that was obtained along with the recording that a Rescue unit was dispatched along with another unit to provide advanced life support for an injury that did not result from a vehicular accident.

The patient was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for additional emergency treatment. The entire incident took 43 minutes.

According to public records laws, only information related to the patient’s identity should be removed. Information about the condition and why the ambulance was called does not identify any particular person and is not subject to redaction.

“There’s only one reason to over-redact a public 911 recording and that is to cover something up. Given the political climate in California, it’s not surprising that some local official with an agenda would want to hide the dangers of abortion,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We need transparency in order to protect women from harm at abortion facilities that are ill-equipped to handle the life-threatening emergencies that occur repeatedly.”

The Pro-Choice Medical Center is owned and solely operated by late-term abortionist Josefa Seletz. Since locating her high-end abortion business to Beverly Hills, she has become known as the “Abortionist to the Stars.”

Since the fall of 2015, there have been at least six women transported to the hospital by ambulance from the Pro-Choice Medical Center, which is one of just five abortion facilities in the U.S. to openly conduct abortions through the third trimester of pregnancy.

“We may never know what happened to the woman injured in April, but we know it was serious enough that the assistance of paramedics was needed along with an emergency transport to the hospital,” said Newman. “Women deserve to know the truth about the true dangers of abortion — and the fact that they could very well leave their appointment in an ambulance, as we see time and time again.”

Abortion Patient Carried by Clinic Workers to Private Vehicle; Ambulance Turned Away

By Cheryl Sullenger

Montgomery, AL – It was an all-too-familiar sight at abortion facilities around the country. Pro-life activists snapped photos as an ambulance pulled into the parking lot of an abortion clinic. This time, it happened at Reproductive Health Services in Montgomery, Alabama, on May 25, 2018.

But this incident was anything but routine.

Before the ambulance could arrive, witnesses told Operation Rescue that they saw two clinic workers carrying a woman under her arms out of the abortion facility and into a private vehicle. She and her companion had left the area by the time the ambulance arrived – presumably in route to a hospital emergency room.

Photos of this disturbing scene show only two abortion clinic workers holding up a blanket to block pro-life photographers, who tried to document the event.

When the ambulance arrived a short time later, another clinic worker told the ambulance driver that they were no longer needed, so the ambulance left the scene without a passenger.

This unusual situation raised concerns about the woman who had to be carried to her car. Why couldn’t the woman walk on her own? Did she suffer injuries during an abortion? Why didn’t the clinic wait for the ambulance? Did she get proper medical treatment for her mysterious condition?

“We have lots of question and not very many answers,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We are still looking into this and hope the woman involved is ok and did not receive an abortion.”

Reproductive Health Services made news last month when a recent inspection report noted a citation for failure to report suspected child sex abuse on a 13-year old girl who received an abortion, then returned to the abortion business within 15 months for a second abortion.

“There are all kind of signs that this abortion facility may be covering up for pedophile sex traffickers,” said Newman. “Given their refusal to protect young girls from abuse, it is not a stretch to think they may be hiding a botched abortion as well.”

Operation Rescue will post updates as more information becomes available.

911 from 2005: Abortion Worker Withholds Critical Information About Dying Abortion Patient

Wichita, KS – Operation Rescue has released a video today featuring a 911 audio recording placed January 13, 2005, on the day Christin Gilbert, 19, died from a botched third-trimester abortion at a now-shuttered late-term abortion facility in Wichita, Kansas.

“Even though this 911 recording is over 13 years old, it is significant today because the abortionist responsible for Christin Gilbert’s fatal abortion was LeRoy Carhart,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Given his most recent botched abortion, in which an abortion patient hemorrhaged so severely that she lost half her blood supply and could have easily died, it is important to revisit the Gilbert case and realize just how little consideration this abortionist has for the lives of his patients.”

Christin Gilbert was a 19-year old with Down syndrome who became pregnant in 2004 due to sexual assault. Her parents did not realize that Christin was with child until her pregnancy was well advanced. They took her to George Tiller’s Women’s Health Care Services (WHCS) in Wichita, Kansas, which was at that time the largest free-standing late-term abortion facility outside Communist China.

Carhart was employed by WHCS and was on duty when Christin was brought in for her 29-week abortion.

Due to her disability, Christin was an innocent victim in every sense. Shemade no decision to become pregnant or to have an abortion. Both were forced upon her, and perhaps that makes her story so much more tragic.

After Christin’s abortion, she grew ill and drifted in and out of consciousness. Her parents returned her to the abortion clinic where she passed out once again. Carhart’s efforts to resuscitate her proved futile.

Finally, 911 was called by former clinic worker Marguerite Reed. From the start, Reed was defensive and evasive. While Christin’s live ebbed away, she placed the 911 dispatcher on hold for a painfully long 45 seconds, only to return more defiant than ever, with no information about Christin’s critical condition that could have assisted emergency responders.

An ambulance transported Christin to Wesley Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead. The paramedics that bought Christin to the hospital appeared grim and worried as they rushed her gurney into the emergency room.

Despite every effort possible, including a medical board complaint, a grand jury investigation, and an appeal to former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, both Carhart and clinic owner George Tiller were never held accountable for Christin Gilbert’s tragic and avoidable death.

After WHCS closed in 2009, Carhart relocated his late-term abortion business to Germantown, Maryland, where he conducted another fatal third-trimester abortion on Jennifer Morbelli, a 29-year old grade school teacher.

Now, Carhart is also operating in Bethesda, Maryland doing abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

“Carhart has killed before and he will kill again. It’s just a matter of time,” said Newman. “As Carhart has aged, he has gotten sloppier with these dangerous late-term abortions. His most recent patient emergency came far too close to being another fatality. Medical boards in Nebraska and Maryland need to stop playing politics and protect women from Carhart’s negligence before someone else dies.”

Watch: 911 Records Show Carhart Abortion Patient Hemorrhaged Half Her Blood Volume

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bellevue, NE – Operation Rescue has obtained the 911 audio recording and Computer Aided Dispatch printout related to a medical emergency that took place on May 4, 2018, at LeRoy Carhart’s Abortion and Contraception Clinic of Nebraska (AACCON) located in Bellevue, Nebraska.

The new records shed light on what we now know was a very serious abortion injury.

According to the 911 recording, a Carhart employee identified as “Chelsea” placed a call to 911 at 12:17 p.m. on May 4 seeking a medical transport to the University of Nebraska Medical Center for a 21-year old female.

Chelsea informed the 911 dispatcher, “Her abortion is complete, but her hemoglobin is 6-3. Six point thee. Excuse me.”

Normal hemoglobin levels for females range from 12.0 to 15.5. A hemoglobin level of 6.3 would represent a life-threatening medical emergency that would require blood transfusion(s).

Severe hemorrhaging resulting in a loss of half an abortion patient’s blood supply would likely come from serious lacerations or other internal injuries inflicted during the abortion procedure.

“We still do not know why the emergency radio traffic archive during this incident had been wiped clean. We are thankful that public 911 records were available to us. This new information indicates that the woman is lucky to have survived,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We understand from other information that has come to us that this woman was treated in an intensive care unit for several days.”

Another abortionist, Shana Miles, who was working for Carhart on the day of the emergency, has not been seen at Carhart’s Bellevue abortion facility since the incident and is presumed to have quit.

Carhart has been responsible for sending 17 women by ambulance for emergency medical intervention at a hospital over the past five years, and at least that many in the five years prior to that, when he worked with George Tiller at his now-closed late-term abortion business in Wichita, Kansas.

Carhart also caused the deaths of at least two abortion patients. Christin Gilbert, 19, died in January 2005, in Wichita after a botched 29-week abortion. Jennifer Morbelli, 29, died in February 2013, after Carhart botched her 33-week abortion at a now-shuttered abortion facility in Germantown, Maryland.

“Lee Carhart has left a long wake of pain, suffering and grief over his decades-long child-killing career,” said Newman. “He is among the most dangerous abortionists in America — and one who is most protected by political corruption. We call on medical boards in Nebraska and Maryland to stop protecting him. His medical licenses must be revoked and his killing spree ended for good.”
