Abortionist Who Killed Woman in Botched Legal Abortion Trashes Pregnancy Centers

An Ohio abortionist who killed a mother and her unborn baby in a botched abortion bashed the life-saving work of pregnancy resource centers in a new Business Insider article.

The news outlet quoted Dr. Lisa Perriera, who works as an abortionist in Ohio and Pennsylvania, as an expert source in the attack piece, which claims pro-life pregnancy centers “trick” and “mislead” women.

While the allegations against the pregnancy centers are suspect, the piece never mentioned the allegations against Perriera, which include several botched abortions and potential violations of a Pennsylvania law that requires underage girls to have a parent’s consent for an abortion.

“They don’t have the capability to do truly anything medical,” Perriera told Business Insider about pregnancy resource centers. “Most of the folks that work in crisis pregnancy centers are people that are on a mission to end abortion. This is a stressful situation people are going through, and those centers are creating barriers to them that makes it even more stressful.”

Actually, some pro-life pregnancy centers do offer medical services under the supervision of licensed medical doctors and nurses. And despite what the article claims, these organizations do not mislead women by pretending to provide or refer for abortions. Instead, they offer counseling, information, material resources and more to support and encourage mothers in stressful situations.

Pregnancy centers provide hope to pregnant mothers who often feel like aborting their unborn babies is their only option, frequently due to financial struggles or lack of support from their family or partner. The pro-life staff and volunteers walk beside these mothers through pregnancy and parenting, encouraging and supporting them and providing the resources that they need – all for free.

In contrast, Perriera makes her living aborting unborn babies in Ohio and Pennsylvania. And her record calls into question how much she really cares about the women she serves; she has no regard for the lives of their unborn babies.

In 2014, one of her patients was the late Lakisha Wilson, a 22-year-old pregnant mother who went to the Preterm Abortion Clinic in Cleveland for an abortion. Wilson stopped breathing not long after the abortion procedure killed her unborn baby, and later was transported to the hospital where she died, according to 911 records.

According to Operation Rescue, Wilson’s autopsy report shows evidence that Perriera and others at the abortion facility failed to properly monitor her after the abortion. The autopsy found Wilson suffered from “uterine atony,” a condition where the uterus does not properly contract after the abortion and leads to hemorrhage. Wilson suffered blood loss and went into shock, which was not immediately detected or she would have been treated and stabilized, the report found.

When the ambulance arrived, document show the emergency responders were delayed in treating Wilson because the elevator was not working properly. When EMTs were able to access Wilson, they found her on the abortion table with her legs still in the stirrups; she was not breathing, according to the documents.

Some suspect Perriera also may have violated Ohio law. In Wilson’s records, she wrote that the patient was 19.4 weeks pregnant; however, the autopsy estimated Wilson was about 23 weeks pregnant. At the time, Ohio prohibited abortions after 20 weeks.

About year after Wilson’s death, Operation Rescue uncovered evidence of at least two more botched abortions that Perriera allegedly performed at Preterm, injuring women while killing their unborn babies.

Perriera also works at the Philadelphia Women’s Center, an abortion facility that appears to have recently violated a state law that requires underage girls to have their parent’s permission before having an abortion.

The news media frequently fails to fact check or scrutinize abortion supporters like Perriera, and instead treats them as reliable experts in the medical field. However, tens of thousands of doctors confirm that aborting unborn babies is not health care.
