Dallas late-term abortion business calls 911 for woman with excessive bleeding

An abortion facility in Dallas, Texas, owned by late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd sent a woman to the emergency room last month. Operation Rescue, which obtained the 911 Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) printout, reported that the 30-year-old woman was taken from Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital to be evaluated. Her current status is unknown.

According to the CAD report, the woman was experiencing excessive bleeding, which prompted facility staffers to call 911. While she was awake and breathing, the CAD report said she was also experiencing “fever, cough, or shortness of breath.” While it is unclear how far along in her pregnancy she was, the only service Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center offers is abortion, so the most likely explanation is that she experienced some kind of complication.

“It is becoming typical for abortion businesses to downplay abortion complications, such as excessive bleeding, which is a potentially life-threatening condition. They tell 911 operators that women who are bleeding out need to be transferred to a hospital for ‘observation’ or ‘evaluation,’” Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said in a statement. “They make it sound like it’s no big deal, but excessive bleeding is a very big deal that can lead to unconsciousness, cardiac arrest, and death, depending on the volume of blood lost.”

Boyd also owns Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where staffers have been caught accepting women for abortions as late as 37 weeks pregnant, albeit for a hefty fee. Boyd and several other SWO abortionists are also currently fighting a lawsuit over the 2017 death of Keisha Atkins following a late-term abortion.


Another woman was injured at Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center in Dallas last year, with staffers again requesting emergency assistance for hemorrhaging. In that instance, they requested that the ambulance come without lights or sirens, which can potentially delay emergency response times, and put the patient in more danger. Yet abortion facilities frequently make this request to avoid bringing attention to any botched procedures.

Boyd’s Dallas facility has also received many negative reviews from patients who have visited, who reported that staffers there were rude and inconsiderate, and many said they suffered serious pain during their abortions.
