40 Days for Life is holding a vigil at a Charlotte, North Carolina, abortion clinic that received some media attention recently for racial slurs by one of its abortionists.

Pro-lifers are checking information on what is believed to be a botched abortion at the Preferred Woman's Health Center. Gretchen Fitz of the Charlotte Coalition for Life tells OneNewsNow that after some demonstrators left, an ambulance was spotted.

ambulance emergency"Sure enough, the ambulance pulled into the Latrobe Drive parking lot, and [the pro-lifers] stood there, took some pictures and waited, saw the woman being carried out on a stretcher into the ambulance, and she was taken to the hospital with their sirens on," Fitz details

The patient was known to have been high risk for complications, and though her identity and current condition are unknown, the abortionist on duty that day has been identified as Ron Virmani -- the same man who was recently caught on video making racial slurs and referring to his aborted infants as "ugly black babies."

"We have the story of him breaking the law, where a man showed up with his wife, drove up from South Carolina to have an abortion, and they did not require the 24-hour waiting period, which is required by North Carolina," the 40 Days for Life spokesperson reports.

The husband, who is willing to testify to that effect, says he changed his mind about the abortion but was not permitted to go to his wife to discuss it.

The same clinic ran into trouble with the Health Department in 2007 and was temporarily shut down.
