emergency lights ambulanceOperation Rescue wants a Washington, D.C. abortionist out of business after learning about the death of a patient.  

Information was recently discovered in a lawsuit filed against Cesare Santangelo and his Washington Surgi-Clinic.

In 2010, family members sought $80 million in damages after the death of Rebecca Carey Charland, who had a serious medical history and sought the removal of her baby, who had died in the second trimester of pregnancy.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says Charland should have been referred elsewhere since the clinic was not prepared for the possible complications.

"She should have been sent to a hospital," insists Sullenger, "where a specialist could have treated her in the safety of hospital conditions."

Charland was allegedly never informed of the increased risks related to her condition and following the procedure turned blue and purple. An ambulance later transported her to a hospital, where she died.

The family settled the lawsuit out of court for an undisclosed amount of money.

Sullenger says Santangelo has a history of problem abortions and she claims two hospitals have complained about him because of patients' botched abortions.

Operation Rescue contends medical officials in D.C. have turned a blind eye and allow him to keep the clinic in operation.
