A pro-life group tracking emergency calls says a Planned Parenthood clinic is not a safe place to be.
Operation Rescue and other pro-life groups track ambulance calls to abortion clinics. The most recent occurred in Spokane, Washington, where a woman suffered a perforated uterus. That was the third emergency call to the clinic – a Planned Parenthood affiliate – this year.
A mega-abortuary operated by Planned Parenthood in Houston, Texas has requested emergency calls for 10 patients so far this year, pro-lifers allege.
Houston Coalition for Life recorded the August 4 ambulance call.
Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger alleges that's only part of the national picture.
"So far this year we've found that almost two-thirds of the medical emergencies that we have documented at abortion clinics across the country take place at Planned Parenthood facilities," she tells OneNewsNow, which is not surprising since the organization is the largest abortion provider in the U.S.
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards insisted to a congressional committee last week that her group – reeling from undercover videos – that her clinics provide vital healthcare to women.
And those claims work, says Sullenger. Women walk into the clinics believing they will get "top-of-the-line medical care," when that's just "publicity spin."
The Operation Rescue report cites only emergency calls to the clinics.
What is not reported is women suffering post-abortion problems at home and then going to emergency rooms for help.
According to Sullenger, the Planned Parenthood official in Houston, who called for an ambulance on August 4, is Tram Nguyen. She is the same person in one of the undercover videos describing "really intact" fetuses.
That video from the Center for Medical Progress was released August 4 - the same day as the botched abortion at Nguyen's clinic.
