Texas abortion business with unsafe history calls 911 for patient ‘pouring’ blood

abortion, Whole Woman's Health

Pro-life watchdog group Operation Rescue obtained 911 records regarding a botched abortion committed on January 10, 2020, at the Whole Woman’s Health abortion business in Austin, Texas. The abortion staff who called 911 told the emergency dispatcher that the patient was “pouring” blood while vomiting.

“The patient came in for a termination procedure [abortion],” said the caller. “We just need an ambulance to come to assess — bleeding.” The dispatcher asked if the blood was “spurting or pouring,” and the abortion worker defined it as “pouring.”

According to the Incident Report obtained by Operation Rescue, the bleeding was noted as “traumatic” and the condition of the woman was listed as a “possibly dangerous hemorrhage” with “lacerations.”


Whole Woman’s Health is a chain of abortion businesses challenged a 2013 law which attempted instilled safety regulations to protect women from dangerous abortion business practices. That law helped shut down 23 of the 41 Texas abortion businesses in operation at the time. Unfortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned certain portions of the law in 2016 in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, allowing Whole Woman’s Health—with its long history of health violations, including failing to ensure a safe and sanitary environment to protect the patients and staff—to continue its dangerous practices.

In a 30-day period in 2012, Whole Woman’s Health of Austin had three medical emergencies involving patients, including one which was considered life-threatening.

Additionally, in 2011, Whole Woman’s Health in Austin, along with Stericycle, was fined over $83,000 for illegally disposing of the bodies of abortion children in dumpsters. The fines were placed on the abortion business after a three-month undercover investigation led to the discovery of violently destroyed bodies in dumpsters behind the facility, along with hazardous materials and private medical records of patients.

For years, Whole Woman’s Health has proven it does not put the safety of women on their priority list and in siding with abortion businesses, the judicial system that exists to establish laws meant to protect U.S. citizens has failed women extensively.
