Late-term abortion business with history of injuries sends more women to hospital


A Michigan abortion facility sent two women to the hospital earlier this year, according to records obtained by Operation Rescue. In one of the incidents, a woman suffered a lacerated uterus during a late-term abortion.

On April 14, an ambulance was sent via a Priority 1 (or critical) dispatch to Northland Family Planning in Southfield, Michigan. This is a late-term abortion facility, committing abortions through 24 weeks of pregnancy on healthy women and preborn babies, and later if the baby is diagnosed with a “fetal anomaly.” In this case, a woman had undergone a 22-week abortion and was hemorrhaging uncontrollably afterwards.

Abortion facility staffers reported the woman had “abnormal uterine and vaginal bleeding” after a laceration to the uterus. When EMTs arrived, she was hypotensive from blood loss. The procedure committed on this woman was a dilation and evacuation, or D&E, which takes multiple days and carries significant risk of several complications. In addition to laceration of the uterus and other organs, there is a risk of perforated organs, excessive bleeding, and damage to the cervix.

The next emergency took place on June 24, when a woman needed to be transported by ambulance to the hospital. Though there was little information reported about the injury she suffered, she complained about abdominal pain and dizziness after the abortion procedure.

Northland Family Planning has a long history of injuring women, despite being a member of the National Abortion Federation — the same abortion group that failed to report Kermit Gosnell’s atrocities and treatment of women.

The facility’s previous injuries include a woman who suffered a collapsed lung and perforated uterus in 2019. The abortion facility had botched five abortions within six months, including a 20-week abortion of twins in which the woman began hemorrhaging before the procedure was complete.

“We have seen some horrific botched abortion emergencies at Northland Family Planning, enough to warrant a full investigation,” Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said. “It’s time for the Blue State of Michigan to put politics aside and do their duty to protect pregnant women from these predatory butchers.”
