Pro-lifers want answers after woman dies at Ohio abortion clinic

Operation Rescue is calling for a full-scale investigation into an Ohio abortion death. 

The abortion on a 22-year-old woman – incidentally described as safe and legal by abortion proponents – was performed at Preterm, a Cleveland abortion clinic.

Citing a 911 transcript, Operation Rescue President Troy Newman says the woman was not breathing when the clinic dialed 911.

"When the ambulance arrived, she was not breathing," Newman tells OneNewsNow. "When they dropped her off at the hospital, she was still not breathing."

According to records, that lasted 28 minutes although it took only three minutes for the ambulance to arrive, which Newman says raises questions about whether the clinic was appropriately equipped to handle emergencies.

Operation Rescue is communicating with the Ohio Board of Medicine, which will investigate, says Newman.

"What needs to happen is that these filthy, disgusting chop shops need to be held to the same standards as every other surgical center," says the pro-life spokesman. "And what we know is that not only they will not comply, but they cannot comply."

Newman goes on to say that once abortuaries are held to the same standard they have to close.
