Operation Rescue is focusing on an incident in Aurora, Illinois, in which an ambulance was called to a Planned Parenthood in the Chicago suburb. A clinic worker described the patient's symptoms to a 911 dispatcher as follows:

Clinic worker: "Heavy bleeding and just feeling faint. Her vitals are unstable. Not able to sit up."

Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger explains that meant the woman "had lost approximately 30 to 40 percent of her blood volume and … was in a very desperate, life-threatening situation because of this hemorrhaging."

Operation Rescue contends an ambulance should have been called sooner.

Last January a post-abortion woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of excessive bleeding – and Sullenger adds there have been even more reports of complications from the abortuary.

According to Sullenger, it's not uncommon for abortion clinics to be unable to handle emergencies and have staff who are untrained to respond. "They're not equipped to handle even the most basic emergencies, even ones that are common emergencies that be expected to happen," she tells OneNewsNow.

Operation Rescue reports that it is this clinic's custom to request ambulances run without sirens – but that in this instance that request was not made … "probably due to the very serious nature of this woman's condition," says Sullenger.
