An abortion clinic operated by Planned Parenthood has achieved a record of sorts: sending nine women to the emergency room in nine months.
The clinic in New York City, named after its founder Margaret Sanger, has now sent its ninth patient to the emergency room this year according to Operation Rescue.
“We don't know exactly what's going on in that clinic that would make it so dangerous for women,” says spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger. “But whatever it is, we really wish the authorities would take a look at what's going on in there because we think this facility is much too dangerous to operate.”
Sullenger says ambulance crews cooperate with the abortion clinic by killing their emergency sirens when they approach and turning them back on when they are a good distance away.
“We believe this is because they don't want to draw attention to the fact,” Sullenger says, “that they are transporting so many women to the hospital from this particular abortion facility.”
That request is not unique for the NYC location since other abortion clinics who also transport injured patients also try to keep it quiet.
