Chicago abortion business with history of 911 calls injures more women


Pro-life watchdog group Operation Rescue reports that two medical emergencies have taken place at Family Planning Associates Medical Group, an abortion business in Chicago. In one case, 911 was called, but in the other, it appears the abortion facility may have called a private ambulance company. Ambulance calls from this facility are a fairly common occurrence.

The first incident occurred on July 8, 2020, and involved a patient who was suffering from heavy bleeding after her abortion. Pro-Life Action League was able to secure the 911 audio recording and provided it to Operation Rescue. On the call, a staff member speaks in a cheery manner despite the severity of the situation. As she did not have the patient’s chart, she was unable to answer the dispatcher’s questions, including the age of the patient. When the dispatcher asked for an age estimate, the staff member replied that “she’s not 80 because she was pregnant today.”

A Priority 1A ambulance was sent. According to Operation Rescue, this signifies a trauma/CPR situation that requires an immediate response from emergency responders with lights and sirens used. Though the caller seemed unfazed by the situation, the 911 dispatcher understood that heavy bleeding after an abortion is serious.


The second incident, reported by an eyewitness, is alleged to have taken place at the same facility just days later. There is no record of a 911 call, but a July 10 email from the witness stated, “An ambulance left from 659 [W. Washington] this morning with its siren going… It happened between 09:45 and 10:00 a.m. today.” No further details are currently available about the emergency or the condition of the person taken by ambulance. It is possible that this ambulance call was made to a private facility.

Abortion businesses injure women at alarming rates. In May 2020, late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart “mangled” two abortion patients so badly that emergency room staff were left traumatized. One hospital staff member told Operation Rescue that it was “the most horrific thing I have ever seen.” One woman reportedly had suffered such extensive internal damage that she received a colostomy with an external bag. The other woman had to undergo a hysterectomy and required four units of blood “just to keep her alive.”

Abortion — the intentional killing of a child in the womb — is never medically necessary and can be dangerous to women, as can be seen in the numerous ambulance calls to abortion businesses across the country on a regular basis. Despite this, abortion businesses and organizations continually fight against laws requiring abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges that would allow more timely and better-executed health care for women who are transported to hospitals following abortion procedures.
