A 13-year-old girl was sent to the hospital with a perforated uterus after undergoing an abortion in Granite City, Illinois. The emergency raises numerous questions, including whether or not authorities have been notified about the rape of a child. The age of consent in Illinois is 17.

Operation Rescue reported that Hope Clinic for Women had four emergencies within two months this year; the specific details were initially not available. But now more information has been uncovered about the fourth emergency, which took place on April 28.

An abortion facility staff member called a private ambulance company, RuralMed EMS, which is located over an hour away. But because they have a contract through Effingham County, the 911 call is public record. During the call, obtained by Operation Rescue, the facility staffer asked for an ambulance to take the child to Barnes-Jewish Hospital, located approximately 20 minutes away in St. Louis, Missouri. Hope Clinic frequently sends women to Barnes-Jewish, even though there is a hospital within walking distance of the facility — right across the street. It’s possible Hope Clinic uses Barnes-Jewish because it is a Level 1 Trauma Center, and can therefore handle more serious injuries.

When the dispatcher asked what was wrong with the patient, the staffer said she was “status post-D&C” and had an “anterior perforation.” No other information was made available, as the computer-aided dispatch transcript was not released.

During a first-trimester D&C abortion, the preborn child is suctioned out of the uterus with a force so strong that the child is torn to pieces. Risks for the mother include a perforated uterus or bowel, infection, and adhesions that could lead to infertility.

“It is unknown whether the abortionist who performed the botched abortion reported the child’s rape,” Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, said in a statement. “My staff is looking into this and filing a formal complaint concerning this middle-school aged girl who was already violated sexually and then violated again by the blood-thirsty abortionists at this hopelessly dangerous facility.”



This abortion facility has become notorious for injuring women, with seven documented injuries in 2022 and 15 since 2020. Previously, EMTs have had to carry injured women down the stairs while on a stretcher, as the elevator was broken. In a recent 911 call, the abortion facility staffer could be heard laughing, despite the fact that a patient was injured.

“We hope and pray that this poor girl lived through this deadly ordeal,” Newman said. “If so, we pray for her as she begins a long journey of physical and emotional healing from the repeated forms of victimization that no child should ever have to endure.”
