Days after March for Life, ambulances called to D.C. Planned Parenthood

Multiple reports from on-the-ground pro-lifers confirm that two ambulances arrived at a Washington, D.C., Planned Parenthood Thursday morning, though the exact reason emergency responders were called remains unknown at this time.

“At about 10:30am Planned Parenthood Carol Whitehill Moses Center sent a woman to the hospital for what appears to have been abortion complications and/or a botched abortion,” wrote Cassidy Elaine on Instagram. “Not yet confirmed. Woman was fearful and appeared painful. EMS used sirens to transport the woman from PP to a local emergency room to receive medical treatment. Prayers appreciated for this poor girl and her baby.”

Shortly after the first ambulance arrived, the second one was on the scene. According to The Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), this Planned Parenthood commits late-term abortions on Wednesdays. The further along in pregnancy, the more dangerous an abortion becomes for a woman.

Mary Margaret Olohan of The Daily Signal reported that a Planned Parenthood employee laughed at the news site’s intern when she inquired about the ambulance, and another Planned Parenthood employee hung up the phone on Olohan. Eyewitnesses told The Daily Signal that they saw a woman who “appeared to be in pain” being transported from the facility to the hospital.

In addition, PAAU stated on Facebook that just before the ambulances arrived, their group was “handing out local pregnancy resources” and “warning abortion minded families going in about this Planned Parenthood’s notorious history of botching abortions… This wasn’t lost on two moms who ended up not getting abortions because they were upset about the whole situation.”

The use of sirens in this case is notable, as many abortion facilities have been known to specifically instruct emergency personnel to arrive and leave with no lights or sirens.

Another pro-lifer tweeted that this facility had an ambulance call as recently as November 2021.

The Planned Parenthood Carol Whitehill Moses Center has been in the news at least twice since it opened in 2016 for medical emergencies the staff was unequipped to handle. One took place in 2021, and another in 2018 when an ambulance and fire unit arrived after the clinic had closed for the day. Operation Rescue reported at the time that Fire and EMS had been dispatched to provide Advanced Life Support capabilities for a woman who was hemorrhaging — a known risk of abortion procedures.

Multiple negative Yelp reviews discovered by Operation Rescue also indicate that the Planned Parenthood facility is not safe, with patients or their loved ones referring to the abortionist as “extremely cold, belligerent and impolite” and “incompetent,” calling the experience “traumatic.”

This is a developing story and may be updated as more information becomes available.
