According to information gathered by Operation Rescue from those on the scene and who have been contacted by members of the woman’s family, Lakisha Wilson was in the later stages of pregnancy, and because of that was turned down by abortion clinics in Columbus and Akron.

She was said to have been brain dead at the time she arrived at the hospital, but was kept on life support for several days so that her organs could be harvested.

“We wish to express our deepest sympathies to Lakisha’s family for their devastating loss,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We have filed complaints with the Ohio Medical Board and with the Ohio Department of Health. We call on the ODH to immediately suspend Preterm’s clinic license pending a full investigation into Lakisha’s death.”
