Another emergency at Planned Parenthood

A pro-life activist group has confirmed a 17th medical emergency in less than a year at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. The latest one was in Indianapolis.

Sullenger, CherylOperation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger tells OneNewsNow her organization obtained transcripts of the 9-1-1 call through the Freedom of Information Act.

"Apparently in this particular abortion, a woman was involved in a second-trimester abortion in her 14th week of pregnancy," she details. "And for some reason, the abortionist could not finish the procedure. She had to stop in the middle and call for help."

But the transcript and recording of the 9-1-1 call reveal an additional problem.

"It appears that the caller, the employee at Planned Parenthood who called 9-1-1, was extremely evasive, did not want to give information," Sullenger reports. "The dispatcher had to ask four different times what was wrong with the woman and why she needed an ambulance. -- this actually delays emergency care, and the emergency responders cannot be prepared for what they're going to find there."

The Operation Rescue spokesperson adds that the rash of emergencies at Planned Parenthood calls into question the safety of the facilities. Earlier this year, for example, Tonya Reaves died after an abortion at a Chicago Planned Parenthood. Workers there waited five and a half hours before calling for help.
