In another example of a lack of respect for life, notorious Michigan abortionist Jacob Kalo, who owns several abortion facilities, put the safety of other citizens at risk so he could complain about the presence of pro-life protesters at his abortion facility. Kalo’s lack of concern for the health and safety of others was documented by Live Action News after health officials closed one of his four abortion facilities last year.
911 audio provided by pro-life activist Lynn Mills reveals that on October 7, 2015, the abortionist tied up 911 for five minutes with a non-emergency call – to complain that protesters were sitting outside his facility – forcing the 911 operator to place him on hold at least five times to take actual emergency calls.
“My name is Doctor Kalo. I’m the owner of 57- sorry, 6765 Orchard Lake Road. I have a clinic over there. And there is some picketers over there,” he tells the 911 operator.He then states this is the third time he has called that week.
As the 911 dispatcher restates the address, she is interrupted by a real emergency call, telling him, “One second please.”
“What is the name of the business there?” the 911 operator asks Kalo.
“It’s Women’s Center,” the abortionist replies.
Kalo, who has had protesters at his facilities for years, tells the emergency dispatcher, “I don’t know if they are allowed to picket or not… but according to the bylaws and the state laws, if they want to picket–”
He is then abruptly interrupted so the 911 operator can take ANOTHER emergency call. When she returns several minutes later, she tells Kalo that the pro-lifers are allowed to protest there. But this is not good enough.
Kalo continues to take valuable time away from 911 by complaining because some of the protesters are sitting in chairs. “It’s not a picnic place,” he tells the dispatcher.
He is interrupted for a THIRD time so the 911 operator can put his petty call on hold for a real emergency call. “I have another emergency call coming in – one minute,” 911 tells Kalo. When the dispatcher returns, Kalo tells her the pro-lifers are “not walking,” and “this is not picketing.”
Even after the 911 operator tells the abortionist that she will have an officer go by to “take a look,” Kalo persists. “Let me just tell you something. I don’t want to keep repeating–” he says before being interrupted a FOURTH time so the dispatcher can take an emergency call.
“Mr. Kalo, we’ll send an officer on over there, okay?” 911 says as they return to the phone. Kalo continues to chastise the operator, “Yeah, but I don’t want to do that every day.” 911 patiently tells him, “Sir, the most I can do is send an officer over there, okay?”
“Let me just say one more sentence,” he continues. “Somebody has to talk to the guys organizing all of that and let them explain the law.” 911 again tells Kalo they will send an officer to the facility. He continues to talk.
911 tells him again that they are extremely busy and says he can hang up or be put on hold so she can take a FIFTH emergency call. He decides to stay on hold, waiting again for the dispatcher.
The audio ends at that point, but pro-lifer Lynn Mills told Live Action News that the call continued for several more minutes. According to the police report obtained by Mills, officers responded to find two older women sitting in chairs outside Kalo’s facility. The women “voluntarily” removed their chairs “to avoid any confrontation.”
