An abortion watchdog group is calling attention to a Chicago clinic whose sordid history proves it is too dangerous to stay open.
Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says her pro-life activist organization has finally received records of a 911 call for an ambulance for Family Planning Associates Medical Group in Chicago, a facility that does abortions.
"A woman was bleeding heavily," she begins. "They couldn't control the bleeding after an abortion, and she told the 911 dispatcher that the woman just needed to be transported to a hospital for observation."
But Sullenger points out that if the woman was bleeding that heavily, then she needed more than observation. After all, the ambulance arrived with lights and siren operating.
"Operation Rescue also received a tip that 10 days after this incident happened. On July 10th, another ambulance reported to this very same abortion clinic to pick up another woman and take her to the hospital," the pro-lifer relays.
Further information is not available on either patient because of privacy laws, but such incidents at the clinic are not rare.
"In the last two years, there've been nine emergency calls to this particular Chicago abortion facility, and that makes it way too dangerous for them to stay open," Sullenger submits.
Operation Rescue has filed a request with state health regulators asking for an investigation and that the clinic be closed for good.
