A pro-life activist organization maintains that most of the nation's abortion clinics are not equipped to handle emergency situations.
For example, the Near North Planned Parenthood in Chicago has once again called for an ambulance because of an emergency resulting from an abortion. The woman in this case was bleeding heavily, and the clinic could not get it under control. Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says this 911 call is the clinic's 14th request for an ambulance in the past 24 months.
"Other incidents that have happened here included women who have had perforated uteruses, women who have hemorrhaged," Sullenger reports. "One hemorrhaged actually to death in 2012. Her name was Tonya Reeves."
Reeves was left to bleed for five hours before an ambulance was called for her.
"All of these complications that are happening due to these botched surgical abortions are emergencies that the staff at Planned Parenthood is not capable of coping with at that facility," the pro-lifer asserts.
Operation Rescue has documented hundreds of abortion clinic problems that impact patients, so the pro-life organization determines most of the clinics in the country are staffed with employees who are not trained well enough to deal with such complications.
"It's kind of the abortion industry's dirty little secret," Sullenger concludes.
