The pro-life group Operation Rescue contends that the situation at a North Carolina abortion clinic is proof that national statistics need to be reported on botched abortions.
In 2016, Diamond Williams had an abortion at the Carolina Center for Women in Charlotte and later died from complications after she was rushed to a hospital emergency room.
Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue investigated the situation and discovered that the center changed its name to a "Women's Choice of Charlotte" two months after the death, along with some other crucial information.
"We received documents from the Charlotte, North Carolina, Fire Department that indicated that there were 20 medical emergencies where a 9-1-1 call was placed from the Carolina Center for Women over the past few years – and these are 20 emergencies that we were previously not aware of," Sullinger informed.
Operation Rescue contends that this uncovered information should serves as a warning to women seeking an abortion in the Charlotte area.
Sullinger stressed that obtaining the type of information she was able to dig up was quite a struggle she contends that it should not be so difficult to access.
"We think also this information supports a call for some type of standardized, national abortion reporting – not just numbers of abortions, but numbers of complications, as well," the pro-life activist impressed.
At present, many shoddy abortion clinics are able to hide behind a curtain of secrecy, keeping the public unaware of abortion emergencies. This is information the public should have access to – especially women who are considering having an abortion.
