Operation Rescue will soon file a complaint against a Boston Planned Parenthood over an incident involving an abortion patient.

Melissa Cullen filed suit against the abortion clinic after a suction abortion. Three hours after the abortion, she passed out due to an extreme loss of blood and she has suffered several subsequent injuries as a result. Emergency room doctors told her the abortion had been done improperly.

Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger tells OneNewsNow that the incident has only been one among many.

"This is the third such injury that we've seen at this same Boston Planned Parenthood since January of 2011," she notes.

Cullen, who claims to now suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is seeking $100,000 in damages. The incident marks the 11th abortion-related medical emergency at Planned Parenthood clinics nationwide during the same period.

Sullenger says that is just the tip of the iceberg.

"These clinics wait until there are no pro-lifers present to witness it, then they call the ambulance for the people, so we think that there's a lot more injuries going on than are even being reported to us," she indicates.

"What is being reported to us are increasingly large amounts of these kinds of incidents all over the country, but especially at Planned Parenthood."

Operation Rescue plans to file a complaint in connection with the three Boston Planned Parenthood incidents, asking for a complete investigation of the facility.
