What 'anything goes' has wrought

Sirens were silent when an ambulance recently pulled up to the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood abortuary in Manhattan -- the 13th time an abortion patient has been rushed from there to a hospital emergency room so far this year. As Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow, 9-1-1 calls are considered private communications, so no further information is available.

"We know that this is a high-volume abortion clinic," Sullenger notes. "We know that it targets poor urban women of color, and we know that the vast majority of the women who have been transported to the hospital have been women of color, primarily African-Americans."

Last January, the state liberalized its abortion laws with an anything-goes policy.

Sullenger, Cheryl"Abortion facilities are less regulated, there's less oversight, and abortion facilities are allowed to have non-licensed physicians -- in other words, nurse practitioners and people like that -- conduct abortions now legally," the pro-lifer explains.

Abortions now are legal through all nine months of pregnancy in New York, even though second- and third- trimester abortions are more dangerous. Operation Rescue is convinced all of those factors have contributed to the increase in emergency calls from the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood.
