According to Operation Rescue, a surgical abortion facility in Little Rock requested an ambulance last month after apparently botching an abortion.
It began on March 31, 2018, when pro-life activists photographed an ambulance at Little Rock Family Planning.
Pro-life activist Mary Silfies told Operation Rescue that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for 911 records related to the incident was denied by the Little Rock City Attorney “because it involved a juvenile.”
A second FOIA request was made to the publicly-funded ambulance company, Metropolitan Emergency Medical Services (MEMS), which complied with a heavily redacted audio recording and Computer Aided Dispatch printout.
A close inspection of the CAD printout revealed under one of the redactions that the young patient suffered hemorrhaging and lacerations.
The 911 recording, which had information about the patient’s condition removed, indicated that the patient was located “in the procedure room with the doctor.” This was an indication that the patient’s condition was serious, otherwise, she would have been sent to the side or back door of the abortion facility for ambulance pick-up.
However, the recording did contain a revealing question at the end of the conversation between the 911 dispatcher and the abortion facility caller.
“Alright, do you have AED there,” asked the dispatcher, to which the call replied in the affirmative.
AED is short for “automated external defibrillator,” which is used to check a patient’s heart rhythm and can send a shock to restore a normal heartbeat. It is also used in the event of a cardiac arrest.
“The fact that the dispatcher was inquiring about the presence of the AED was another indication that young woman was in pretty bad shape,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
Altogether, Operation Rescue says this is the third time this year an ambulance has been called out to the surgical abortion clinic in Little Rock.
This week Dr. George Delgado along with six other researchers published a study in the journal Issues in Law and Medicine verifying what many pro-lifers have been saying for years: Chemical abortions can be safely reversed and unborn babies’ lives can be saved.
Doctors performing chemical abortions give the pregnant woman drugs like RU-486 that kill the unborn child. The drugs are administered in two doses. However, some women have second thoughts about abortion after taking the initial abortion drug.
Dr. Delgado’s research demonstrates that after a woman receives the first chemical abortion drug, the abortion can be stopped if the woman soon takes an antidote to the abortion drug.
The study followed 754 women who tried to reverse their chemical abortions. It concluded chemical abortions could be reversed 64% – 68% of the time — with no apparent risk of birth defects.
In 2015 Arkansas passed an informed-consent law requiring abortion clinics to tell women that chemical abortion can be reversed, but that time is of the essence.
At the time, many abortion advocates dismissed the idea of chemical abortion reversal as junk science. This latest research, however, indicates it is a safe, effective way to save lives.
A Pennsylvania branch of Planned Parenthood posted a bizarre tweet this week calling on Disney to create an animated princess who has had an abortion.
The tweet read,
We need a disney princess who’s had an abortion / We need a disney princess who’s pro-choice / We need a disney princess who’s an undocumented immigrant / We need a disney princess who’s actually a union worker / We need a disney princess who’s trans[gender]
Planned Parenthood has since deleted the post, but many people have pointed out that the tweet was incredibly ironic: Who are Disney’s biggest fans? Children. And who kills hundreds of thousands of unborn children every year? Planned Parenthood.
It all reminds me of something John Stonestreet at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview jokingly wrote last December:
Who’s sabotaging Planned Parenthood’s Twitter account? . . . I’ve been saying for a while now that there’s got to be a pro-life mole running Planned Parenthood’s Twitter page. So many tweets and images they post seem to undermine or parody their pro-death position.
