Wilmington, Delaware – Operation Rescue has published newly obtained 911 recordings of two medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood in Wilmington, Delaware, which took place on February 8, and 16, 2013.
In both cases, patients were transported to a local hospital with abortion complications that could not be managed by abortionists and nurses who attended the women at the clinic.
The 911 recordings were obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests made by a participant in a local 40 Days for Life campaign with the assistance of Operation Rescue. While prayer vigil participants were present for the incident on the 16th, they were unaware that another medical emergency had taken place at that same Planned Parenthood abortion clinic just 8 days earlier until they received the open records files.
“The 911 recordings are important because they expose the inconvenient truth that abortion isn’t as safe as the abortion cartel would have you believe,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “Women are maimed and killed by shoddy abortionists on a regular basis, but it is covered up by the clinics, the abortion lobby, and the media. Public records tear way the curtains of secrecy that enables abortionists to abuse women. This helps us warn the public and hold abortionists accountable for their actions.”
Patient 1 –February 8, 2013
On February 8, 2013, Planned Parenthood called 911 at 1:30 p.m. to ask for assistance for a patient that was unconscious and struggling to breathe. Despite the presence of two physicians and three nurses, her condition still required emergency assistance from paramedics.
The caller indicated that they were using an emergency non rebreather on the patient, which is a mask with a flat bag that used in emergency situations to provide oxygen to the patient.
However, the non rebreather seemed inadequate, because the caller told the dispatcher that they were “getting ready to bag” the patient. “Bagging” a patient is done with a hand-held device used to provide positive pressure ventilation to a patient who is not breathing or who is breathing inadequately. It is an emergency resuscitative measure.
Paramedics and an ambulance were dispatched to the scene. The outcome of this patient’s medical emergency is unknown.
Patient 2 – February 16, 2013
A second medical emergency at Planned Parenthood in Wilmington, which was witnessed by pro-life activists, took place on February 16. Video was taken by Rae Stabosz during a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil that shows a woman on a gurney with a possible IV bag containing plasma or other blood products.
The partially-redacted 911 recording confirmed that the patient suffered heavy bleeding. The Planned Parenthood employee that placed the call opted for response by paramedics instead of a simple ambulance transfer, indicating that the patient needed emergency care.
She was rushed to St. Francis Hospital for emergency treatment.
These incidents comprise the third and fourth medical emergencies observed or documented by prayer vigil participants at Planned Parenthood in Wilmington over a two-year period.
“We wonder – how often does it happen when we are not there?” asked Stabosz.
Wonder who are the abortionists there?
Business as usual, eh ?
A minimum wage employee calling 911 who doesn’t even know the severity of the situation.
NO surprise there.
Our tax dollars at work…killing babies and wounding women. WHERE is the outrage from the Feminists ?
Hope you are bale to get the hospital records for both of these cases…i want to know what the issue was. and what the real doctores found.
After listening to these and previous 911 calls, it never ceases to amaze me how ignorant and unprepared the caller is when the dispatcher asks questions about the patient including the reason emergency responders are needed in the first place. It is like someone said call 911 and she does it without knowing why she is calling or who is in distress.
How can anyone watch this and not be completely dumbfounded with the travesty of it all. It seems a bit surreal doesn’t it? However, it is not surreal, it is real, and it is happening before our very eyes. It is so obvious how complicit the enemy is in this whole endeavor. Lies, coverup and distortion. Quite an effective game plan. Kill the most vulnerable among us and exterminate the human race, because he hates us. He has doomed himself and now is bent on eliminating us. God be on our side! God win the victory! God break asunder this diabolical menace! To His name be glory forever and forever!
I have an 8-1/2-year-old grandson who is an abortion survivor. His mother was given one pill that stops the growth of the fetus and another pill to take the next day to expel the “products of conception” (obtained through Planned Parenthood I believe). She had some bleeding and thought the pill was successful. When she went for the follow-up appointment to check for any signs of pregnancy the ultrasound machine was broken and she would have had to drive an hour away to another clinic so she did not follow-up further. A few months later she was having abdominal pain and went to the ER and discovered she was still pregnant! Praise God she decided to keep this precious one and not follow-up with a late-term abortion. He is a wonderful gift from the Lord, has accepted Jesus as his savior, loves to read his Bible and attend church, and is truly a bright light in our family. We can’t imagine our lives without him….and the whole family are now Christians. I know it is hard for his parents to think of those days now, but what a gift from the Lord to know that He spared their child and they do not have to live the rest of their lives with the shame and guilt that would be present if the procedure had been “successful.”
there is no surprise to hear medical complications with abortion . this all stated with the sexual revolt in the 1960s onwards , the pill and the abortion clinics have made woman sex objects . once there pregnant where is the father of the child to support them ? there left to deal with the baby on their own and face the terrible grief that follows .
