Dispatch Documents Shed Little Light on Woman Transported From Abortion Facility by Ambulance

Last week Family Council reported on an ambulance spotted at Little Rock Family Planning Services — Arkansas’ only surgical abortion facility.

Pro-life volunteers outside the facility reportedly saw a woman transported by ambulance on Tuesday afternoon last week. Photos and video of the incident show clinic volunteers obscuring the woman from view as she was taken to the ambulance.

This week Family Council received 911 dispatch reports from the incident obtained via the Freedom of Information Act.

The redacted reports indicate that the woman was taken to UAMS in Little Rock.

Act 740 of 2021 requires abortionists to maintain transfer agreements with local hospitals to handle these sorts of emergencies. Little Rock Family Planning Services maintains an ambulance transport agreement with MEMS and a hospital transfer agreement with UAMS.

The reports also list the woman’s priority level as a “Code 2.” In the past, Family Council has been told that Code 2 suggests the situation was urgent, but not necessarily life-threatening.

The whole incident is strikingly similar to apparent botched abortions at the same surgical abortion facility in 2018 and in 2019.

As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to possibly overturn Roe v. Wade and pro-lifers brace for a “summer of rage” from abortion activists, incidents like these continue to remind us that abortion takes the life of an unborn child, and it carries serious risks for women.

Pro-Abortion Activists Promise “Summer of Rage” Over Roe

Pro-abortion activists have promised a “summer of rage” in response to the leaked U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.

On Sunday the pro-abortion Women’s March announced that its “summer of rage is officially beginning.”

Other pro-abortion groups and activists made similar comments about a “summer of rage” over the weekend.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s draft opinion reversing Roe v. Wade surfaced online, pro-life organizations have seen their offices vandalized and firebombed.

The draft opinion would not end abortion altogether. It would leave the door open for state legislators and congress to pass their own abortion laws. If the U.S. Supreme Court issues this draft opinion as its official decision in the coming days, it will be up to states to decide what abortion laws they want to enact.

Guest Post: There’s No Crisis in Aging

Recently, Stanford Center on Longevity announced a project called the “New Map of Life.” “In the United States,” the authors write, “as many as half of today’s 5-year-olds can expect to live to the age of 100, and this once unattainable milestone may become the norm for newborns by 2050.”

The problem, the authors admit, is that we don’t know what to do with an extra 30 years: The “narrative of an ‘aging society’ seems to convey only a crisis.”

Reaching this 100-years-of-life milestone is, as one researcher put it, a “[breathtaking] package of human potential the world has never seen, unprecedented numbers of people with unprecedented capabilities, and significant desire to give back and leave the world better.”

Scripture agrees, calling old age “a crown of glory.” But that’s not because of how long it lasts or what is accomplished. It’s because there’s a “why” behind it all. As Stanford looks for technological and sociological benefits to longer lives, Christians can point to the Source of meaning for all of life, who faced and defeated death.

The more time we have to do that, the better.
