A woman was rushed to the emergency room following a botched abortion procedure at a Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Louis., Mo., on Saturday.
That same Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Louis, Mo., has made at least 60 emergency calls from its facility over the past seven years. Operation Rescue, a pro-life Christian activist organization, has labeled it one of the most dangerous abortion facilities in the United States.
A total of 58 patients were brought to emergency rooms after arriving at the clinic between April 2009 and April 2016, of which 23 of them had experienced hemorrhaging, one of the most common complications from abortions. The St. Louis Fire Department released this information following a lawsuit from Operation Rescue. Unfortunately, due to the cut off date, this list does not include the emergency transportation of the patient who experienced a botched abortion at the facility on May 13.
It also does not include the one from Saturday, in which the woman’s transport from the clinic to an ambulance was caught on camera by pro-life activists.
… they removed a Planned Parenthood patient from the abortion facility and loaded her into an awaiting ambulance.
Abortion workers and an armed security guard attempted to conceal the incident by holding up large brown tarps.
Students for Life of America rightfully started the trending hashtag #protectthemboth, in order to advocate for a Texas law that mandates abortion clinics meet the minimum safety standards as surgical centers, as well as a second law requiring that any “physician performing or inducing an abortion . . . must, on the date [of service], have active ad- mitting privileges at a hospital . . . located not further than 30 miles from the” abortion facility.”
Both laws were overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court last week, who wrongfully decided the standards were unnecessary and only sought to prevent women from obtaining abortions.
In Missouri, it’s currently a class B felony if a physician provides an abortion "without privileges at hospital offering OB/Gyn care.”
But now, still more women like this one will undoubtedly suffer in the future from a lack of proper care, all because the Supreme Court didn’t want to #protectthemboth.
