A pro-life watchdog group is asking Alabama to enforce its own abortion clinic regulations.
Operation Rescue has obtained records about an abortion at West Alabama Women's Center, located in Tuscaloosa, where a woman walked in for an abortion but could barely manage to walk out. She later died.
“Something went very wrong,” says Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue. “We don't know exactly what, because we don't have the autopsy report. But this woman was released in very unstable condition, and she was taken by a private vehicle to the hospital where we are told, when she arrived at the hospital, she had no pulse.”
Operation Rescue reports the clinic never called 9-1-1 so the pro-life group is seeking the autopsy report to learn further information.
Abortion supporters routinely claim the procedure is safe for women, and praise the abortionists at work in the clinics, but Sullenger and Operation Rescue work with pro-life groups around the county who are first-hand witnesses watching the ambulances come and go.
The death linked to Women’s Center occurred on the first day of new ownership by the Yellowhammer Fund, with 81-year-old abortionist Louis Payne in charge.
The new ownership should trigger a new application.
“They need to make a new application, be inspected and all that. None of that ever happened,” Sullenger advises. “And the Department of Health has declined to enforce their own regulations regarding that.”
