Botched Abortion Sends Houston Planned Parenthood Client to Hospital

A new video is out today showing a recording of a 911 call made from the Planned Parenthood abortion business in Houston, Texas, by a nurse who is requesting help for a patient victimized by a botched abortion.
The video shows a nurse calling for an emergency transport of a woman suffering hemorrhaging after an abortion. The call was placed on August 23, 2012.
According to information Operation Rescue provided LifeNews, during the 911 recording, the caller identified herself as a nurse who was not in the procedure room and could answer no questions about the client’s condition beyond the assumption that she “may be hemorrhaging.”
“But we are, uh, we have a crash cart on site,” she told 911 emergency response.
Operation Rescue suspects the abortion patient was in a life-threatening condition because crash carts are used in the event of life-threatening medical emergencies where the patient’s heart and respiration stop.
Troy Newman, the president of Operation Rescue, says pro-life sidewalk counselors at the scene photographed the ambulance outside Planned Parenthood. Paramedics were inside the abortion clinic for about 20 minutes before wheeling the client on a gurney to the awaiting ambulance. The injured woman was receiving oxygen and some kind of IV solution.
Susan Miral of the Houston Coalition for Life reports that this is the seventh medical emergency requiring ambulance transport since the 78,000 sq. ft. abortion facility opened in May, 2010. Planned Parenthood’s web site indicates that it supplies abortions up to 20 weeks gestation.
“This is another in a list of nearly a dozen botched abortions that we have documented at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics nationwide in the past 20 months – and these are just the ones we know about. We are sure these are just the tip of the iceberg since abortion clinics make great efforts to conceal the true number of medical emergencies,” said Newman.
He told LifeNews: “It is unconscionable that our tax dollars are going to Planned Parenthood, especially with their increasingly high rate of life-threatening abortion emergencies. President Obama’s support for Planned Parenthood in the face of these abortion injuries – including at least one abortion death – is a national disgrace.”
