Women Injured by Botched Abortions in Georgia, Massachusetts

Women were injured by abortions so extensively on Saturday in two states that local abortion facilities, including a Planned Parenthood clinic, were forced to send the women to the hospital. Local pro-life advocates filmed both calls for ambulances to the abortion clinics.

On Saturday, around mid-morning, a Planned Parenthood security guard in Boston, Massachusetts waived an ambulance around to the back of the abortion facility to pick up an abortion patient for emergency transport. The local prolife group Operation Rescue Boston said the condition of the woman is unknown, because of HIPPA laws protecting her privacy.

Local pro-life advocates said this botched abortion follows one on January 7, 2011 in which pro-life-life activists documented a similar incident at the same Planned Parenthood abortion center.

Meanwhile, an ambulance responded to the Feminist Women’s Health Center (FWHC), also known as the Cliff Valley Clinic, in Atlanta, Georgia – also on Saturday. This is the fourth such incident at this abortion clinic this year officials with Operation Rescue tell LifeNews. According to long-time pro-life activist Michelle Wolven, ambulances were called to this same clinic in February, March, and April of this year and information Wolven obtained from the EMS Dispatch Department for Dekalb County reveals ambulances were called to FWHC for botched abortion victims five times last year.

“Both of these abortion clinics are repeat offenders. This and other documentation reveals a pattern of abortion abuses that are injuring women, often at an astounding rate, as we see in Atlanta. These clinics are proven to be dangerous and should be closed. Multiple complaints have been filed against these clinics, but authorities in these states have been slow to act, which only places women in additional jeopardy,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation.

Newman continued:  “Incidents like this reveal a national scandal that the mainstream media is loath to cover. Abortion clinics across the nation are dangerous places that injure patients and ignore laws that were enacted to protect women. Thanks to increasingly sophisticated pro-life activists and the Internet, the truth about shoddy abortion practices is finally getting to the public.”

In the previous botched abortion incident in Boston, pro-lifers on the scene said they saw one woman wheeled out the front door on a gurney and loaded into one of the awaiting ambulances. Bill Kotter of Operation Rescue Boston, a local pro-life group, provided details on the incident to Operation Rescue, a national organization that monitors abortion centers and how they hurt women.

Newman told LifeNews.com today there is a clear pattern in the abortion industry to call ambulances only in the event of a life-threatening emergency, making it so he is gravely concerned about the welfare of the woman victimized by the failed abortion.

“Ambulances at abortion clinics make them look bad and drive off business. Even when life-threatening abortion complications exist, we have seen numerous examples where abortion clinics have refused to call ambulances, so in this case, you could say the woman was lucky,” Newman said.

“The dangers women face at abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood cannot be underestimated because the clinics operate in secrecy with almost no accountability,” said Newman.



The pro-life advocate said the botched abortion is yet another reason why the abortion business should no longer receive federal funds, or taxpayer dollars of any kind.

“To add insult to injury, these abortion mills operate with our tax dollars propping them up. Over 70% of Americans are opposed to paying Planned Parenthood to take the lives of innocent babies and injury women through shoddy practice,” he said.
