A new video has surfaced showing workers at an abortion clinic in Milwaukee, Wisconsin dancing and laughing as they wait for an ambulance to pull up to take a woman to the hospital who has suffered injures from a botched abortion.

The video has employees of Affiliated Medical Services transporting the third woman this year to a local hospital following a failed abortion. The video, from Friday as abortion practitioner Bernie Smith was reportedly on duty, shows AMS staff clearly seen laughing, dancing and even doing the limbo as the woman is taken away.

One Affiliated Medical Services abortion center staffer even threatens pro-life advocates who are on hand for the 40 Days for Life event saying, “You’re lucky it isn’t you in the hospital.”

Pro-Life Wisconsin obtained the video and posted on their web site with comments in reaction to it.

“Those who lobby for abortion’s legality claim that if abortion were made illegal, women would have to resort to dirty, back-alley abortions,” PLW says. “But the reverse has actually happened — as was sadly illustrated with Kermit Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” abortuary in Philadelphia, the dirty, back-alley abortions are legal and no one is watching.”

“This is at least the third time this year an ambulance has arrived at AMS after a botched abortion; sidewalk counselors recorded two separate ambulance visits on April 8,” PLW continues. “Abortion facilities in Milwaukee are not subject to health inspections. Some days the smell of death — blood and flesh — can be smelled wafting out of AMS when the staff open the doors.”

“AMS has been the site of 40 Days for Life for three years now. Sidewalk counselors and prayer warriors are present at AMS year-round as well. 40 Days vigilers were in front of AMS when this occurred,” it concluded. “Women have been taken to Columbia St. Mary’s after botched abortions, forcing a Catholic hospital and staff to clean up the abortionist’s mess.”

That women would be injured and possibly killed in botched abortions is something the Affiliated Medical Services abortion center knows as their consent forms, available on their web site, indicates “complications, including death, can occur.”
