Operation Rescue is raising a caution flag concerning an Illinois abortion clinic.
The concern is being expressed about the Planned Parenthood abortuary in Flossmoore, a suburb on the south side of Chicago.
Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says two ambulances recently arrived to help patients, the first one on May 7.
“A woman was transported by a private ambulance and we really don't know what her condition was,” she says. “But we know that she was removed from the abortion clinic on a gurney, so we know that her emergency was such that she required better treatment at a hospital that she couldn't get at the Planned Parenthood.”
The ambulance service is headquartered in Dalton, nearly 10 miles away, a drive that takes approximately 22 minutes.
The following day, May 8, there was a second medical emergency.
“We learned from getting the 9-1-1 records that this woman suffered a possible perforated uterus,” Sullenger advises. “That means the abortion instrument was shoved through the wall of her uterus and into her abdominal cavity.”
That causes excessive bleeding and possible damage to internal organs, and women have died from the condition.
Operation Rescue has learned it is the fourth medical emergency requiring an ambulance transport since the Planned Parenthood opened in Flossmoor in 2018.
