A pro-life activist organization is warning of the potential danger posed to women by an Arkansas abortion clinic.
In the latest incident at Little Rock Family Planning, an emergency call was made requesting transport of an abortion patient to a hospital emergency room. Operation Rescue obtained a copy of a heavily redacted transcript of the 9-1-1 call – but some information could still be deduced.
Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger tells OneNewsNow that the dispatcher asked if the clinic had an AED – an automated external defibrillator – onsite.
"That is the machine that you can attach a person to [that] automatically determines whether the person is having a heart attack," Sullenger explains, "and it applies an electric shock to shock the heart back into a normal beating rhythm."
According to the Operation Rescue spokeswoman, that suggests the problem may have been serious – but no further information is available.
Sullenger explains it's hardly an isolated incident at the facility. "This clinic has actually sent over 60 women to the hospital," she shares. "We found that out through our open records requests."
Many of the transports, she adds, were for life-threatening conditions following abortion. Operation Rescue considers the abortuary dangerous and believes it ought to be closed.
