Abortionist casually addresses 911 dispatcher during emergency call: ‘Hey, what’s up?’

Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Action League have received audio for a 911 call regarding a woman who was injured during an abortion procedure at Access Health Center in Des Plaines, Illinois, on November 2, 2023. Though records show that the woman’s injuries were quite serious, the abortionist can be heard casually addressing the dispatcher as if it were a routine call.

After calling 911, the first caller from the abortion business handed the phone to the abortionist so she could speak to the dispatcher.


“Hello?” she can be heard saying cheerfully. When asked to describe the patient’s injuries, she flippantly says, “Hey, what’s up? So we are doing a procedure, an intrauterine procedure, and then she just won’t stop bleeding.” The abortionist insists on the call that the patient herself had requested emergency transport and she didn’t seem to think it was necessary.

The abortionist also appears unable to provide basic information about the patient, first estimating her age to be “probably around 30 or something like that,” before checking the chart to verify that the woman is, in fact, 39 years old. She also downplays the patient’s injuries, saying, “She’s lost maybe like a hundred milliliters of blood overall…”

Despite this claim, the computer-aided dispatch transcript shows that the woman’s transfer was coded as a priority two major emergency and required advanced life support, belying the abortionist’s cavalier telephone manner.

When asked if the patient was pregnant, the abortionist is sure in that answer, saying, “Not anymore.”

As Operation Rescue notes, “Her tone of voice more closely resembled that of an adolescent observing the situation than the voice of someone with the knowledge and professionalism expected of a medical ‘doctor.'”

Access Health Center has been the scene of several other known abortion-related injuries, including a woman last year who was left hemorrhaging for hours before an ambulance was called, and another who was overdosed on fentanyl and midazolam and stopped breathing in the middle of a 911 call.

“People who kill for a living have seared consciences. They simply cannot have a normal degree of empathy and concern for a suffering patient, like that of a sincere caregiver,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “[W]e are thankful the mother remained conscious and was alert enough to demand emergency intervention.”

The DOJ put a pro-life grandmother in jail for protesting the killing of preborn children. Please take 30-seconds to TELL CONGRESS: STOP THE DOJ FROM TARGETING PRO-LIFE AMERICANS.
