911 call released: botched abortion sends Planned Parenthood client to hospital
Houston, TX, October 3, 2012 (LIfeSiteNews.com) - In a recording of a 911 call placed by a Planned Parenthood mega-abortion center in Houston, Texas that was released today, a nurse is heard calling for an emergency transport of a woman suffering hemorrhaging after an abortion. The call was placed on August 23, 2012.
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 offered. Crash carts are used in the event of life-threatening medical emergencies where the patient’s heart and respiration stop.
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,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “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.”
“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.”
