Delaware Planned Parenthood sends patient to ER in her own vehicle after incomplete abortion

A Planned Parenthood facility in Dover, Delaware, with a history of dangerous practices, is reported to have sent a woman and her boyfriend away in the middle of the woman’s first trimester suction abortion — without calling an ambulance.

Operation Rescue reports that the woman and her boyfriend were instead walked out to the boyfriend’s vehicle and were instructed to go to the emergency room where the abortion could be completed:

A pro-life activist on the scene at the time of the incident spoke with the boyfriend about what happened at the Planned Parenthood facility.

She told Operation Rescue that he said [abortionist Larry Ray] Glazerman started the suction abortion procedure but the baby “wasn’t in the right position” and “would not fit into the suction tube.” He instructed the boyfriend to take the patient to the emergency room.

“The doctor there can do the abortion,” Glazerman reportedly told the boyfriend, who took information from the pro-life activist, but turned down further assistance.

The woman was then rushed via private vehicle to Kent Hospital’s emergency room where her abortion was presumably completed.

Glazerman was sued in 2012 after he massively botched an ovarian cyst removal on Lisa Marie Carter. Operation Rescue says he “sliced through her bowel during the procedure, causing a massive infection,” resulting in an amputation of Carter’s hands, feet, and lower legs.

In 2013, two nurses told of “meat market” and “assembly line” conditions at Planned Parenthood of Delaware, as well as unsanitary conditions for patients. After the nurses came forward and an investigation was launched, Planned Parenthood of Delaware insisted that positive changes were being made — but sending a patient away halfway through an abortion, without even an ambulance, is not a positive or safe change for women.
