On July 26, 2015, Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, visited ABCs “This Week”. In an attempt to persuade America to side with her organization, Richards made the following statement: “Planned Parenthood has broken no laws. We have the highest standards. The care and safety of our patients is our most important priority”. Let’s take a moment to examine a few examples of the care women can expect to receive in one of Planned Parenthood’s surgical centers where baby parts are collected and sold.
Emergency 911 records revealed a February 20, 2015, incident where a 38-year old pregnant patient suffered seizures and was unresponsive. The Planned Parenthood worker at first told the 911 dispatcher that the woman had no history of seizures, then corrected herself and indicated the patient had a medical history of seizures and suffered an episode just four months prior.
Ambulances were called to the Bedford Heights, Ohio Planned Parenthood abortion center on March 27 and May 11, 2015. In both cases “advanced life support” was administered on the scene, indicating that the emergencies were more serious in nature than “basic life support” incidents.
For the 28th time in less than six years, a patient of the Central West End Health Center of Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, Missouri, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for emergency care that could not be provided by Planned Parenthood.
911 recordings show that a Planned Parenthood patient in Spokane Washington who was transported to the hospital on April 15, 2015, was hemorrhaging.
In May, 2015 an abortion patient in Lincoln, Nebraska suffered a medical emergency and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment that the Planned Parenthood facility was not equipped to provide.
After just 42 days in business, a patient at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Victorville, CA was rushed to the hospital suffering from an unspecified medical emergency. However, the Victorville clinic is not supposed to be doing abortions.
During late summer or early fall of 2012, Carla M. Murray complained to her supervisor, Thelma Mendoza, that the clinic was violating the law by permitting non-licensed personnel to gain access to a locked medication cabinet and dispense medication to patients after a teenager was given a Depo-Provera shot against her will. Murray was fired.
On May 3, 2012, Timothy David Smith transported his thirteen-year-old step-daughter to Planned Parenthood in Denver, Colorado, for an abortion appointment that Timothy had forced her to schedule. None of the four Planned Parenthood staff reported or questioned Smith or his step daughter on the relationship. Instead they gave her an abortion, a birth control shot and sent her back home with her abuser who had been abusing her since she was six.
On July 20, 2012, a Chicago, Ill Planned Parenthood abortionist botched a second trimester abortion on a young African-American woman named Tonya Reaves. While Reaves’ life ebbed away, the abortionist delayed her transport to the hospital for 5½ hours. She spent the time in between scraping Reaves womb another two times, performing several other abortions
Planned Parenthood paid out $1.5 million in damages to the family of a 14-year-old, after she sustained permanent injuries from an abortion procedure performed by Colin Walters.
These are just a few examples of the health care that is Planned Parenthood’s priority. Their health care results in aiding and abetting child molesters; providing substandard care that results in the hospitalization of patients and sometimes infertility and the ultimate price, substandard care that results in death. Women beware - Planned Parenthood’s multi-billion dollar care is a trap and snare for you, your baby and your baby’s body parts. Beware!
