Repeat performances by Midwestern abortuaries

abortion examination roomTwo abortion clinics – one in Cleveland, OH, and the other in Chicago – are demonstrating again why they have a troubled history of patient handling and treatment.

Operation Rescue has received documentation that on June 7, Tia Parks – a 26-year-old woman – went to Preterm, a Cleveland abortion clinic. According to Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger, Parks was to undergo a routine abortion.

"[But] she had an undetected ectopic pregnancy along with an intrauterine pregnancy," she explains. "This is kind of an unusual situation, but it went undetected by the abortion clinic – so they gave her a routine abortion on that day."

Sullenger reports that by the next day Parks was in such pain and having breathing problems at a friend's house at mid-afternoon that she was taken by ambulance for emergency care – and was dead by 5:00 p.m.

The OR spokeswoman contends Parks' condition would have been detected had the abortuary conducted an ultrasound.

"And why they didn't check to make sure everything was okay inside of her while they were looking is beyond me," Sullenger laments. "I think they should always check the fallopian tubes and the area around the uterus just to make sure everything is okay. That just seems prudent."

The 5'7", 305-pound woman lost her fraternal twins to abortion – then lost her life after seeping five pints of blood into her abdominal cavity.

Preterm is the same clinic where Lakisha Wilson died from complications from an abortion in March 2014.

Inadequately prepared

Meanwhile, the American Women's Medical Center – a Chicago abortion clinic – has sent another woman to the hospital.

The Pro-Life Action League, headquartered in Chicago, was able to get a copy of a 911 call from American Women's Medical Center requesting that a patient be transferred to a hospital for post-abortion emergency care. Like most abortion facilities, the clinic was not equipped to take care of emergencies.

Following is portion of the conversation obtained by Operation Rescue from the Pro-Life Action League:

Clinic worker: "Hi, this is [name bleeped] at American Women. I need ambulance to transfer the patient."

Dispatcher: "What is the address?"

Clinic worker: "2744 North Western."

Dispatcher: "What's the problem?"

Clinic worker: "The patient had surgery today and her blood pressure is on the low side – low blood pressures like [in the] 90s."

In the past, this Chicago clinic has been cited by inspectors for lack of an infection control program, quality of its surgical procedures, failure to make sure sterilization equipment is working properly, and failure of abortionists to engage in proper hand hygiene.

The clinic's only listed abortionist, Josephine Kamper, has been sued twice by state regulators. According to a lawsuit filed by the family of Antonesha Ross, who had a 14-week abortion by Kamper at another facility, the woman experienced difficulties following an abortion and was not properly handled, leading to her death. The lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed amount of money.
