Albuquerque, NM, July 8, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The pro-life organization Operation Rescue has obtained a series of 911 calls placed from Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) in Albuquerque, New Mexico, over a recent 15-month time span. The organization says the tapes reveal a “disturbing” pattern of life-threatening abortion complications.
The first released 911 recording was placed on February 10, 2010. It indicates that SWO had just completed a second-trimester abortion on a 17-year old girl who was suffering from a fever, a possible sign of infection, a rapid pulse, and uncontrolled bleeding.
“She just had the second tri procedure and she has a fever that’s spiking right now and then her pulse is up to 172 with some bleeding that they can’t get under control,” a SWO employee is heard telling the 911 dispatcher.
The call originated at 11:04 PM. The SWO employee told the dispatcher, “It looks like we’re closed, but we are in the office.”
“Secrecy is the order of the day at abortion clinics like this across the country,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Recordings like this help us see the reality behind the abortionist’s empty rhetoric.”
Complications mentioned on other 911 recordings include uncontrolled uterine bleeding, an incident of “heavy hemorrhaging,” and a uterine rupture. All patients required emergency transport to local hospitals.
Former Kansas late-term abortionists Shelley Sella and Susan Robinson are employees of SWO, which is owned by Texas abortionist Curtis Boyd. It is believed that either Sella or Robinson was involved in the botched abortions on women ranging in age from 17 to 30.
Sella had previously worked for late-term abortionist George Tiller, but relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico, last year. She is a self-proclaimed lesbian from the Oakland, California, area who was once accused by former abortion nurse Tina David of delivering a live baby at 35 weeks gestation, then stabbing the moving baby in the ribcage until he died.
“When Sella and Robinson worked at a now-closed late-term abortion mill in Wichita, we documented numerous botched abortions that landed women in the hospital. We predicted when they relocated to New Mexico, where there are few, if any safety rules, more women would suffer tragedy. That prediction has now come true,” said Newman.
“We have filed complaints against the abortionists at this clinic, Curtis Boyd, Susan Robinson and Shelley Sella, and have turned over the emergency transcripts for them to investigate. These abortionists present an obvious danger to the public and need to be held accountable for the injuries they are inflicting on unsuspecting women.”
