Michigan late-term abortion facility responsible for another injury

Operation Rescue has received 911 transcripts that reveal a woman was injured at the Northland Family Planning Center abortion facility in Southfield, Michigan, on May 12, 2022.

The facility’s 911 caller said, “We have someone bleeding very heavily.”

 

Though few other details are given, the public patient care record reveals that the injured woman was 28 years old. In the pregnancy category of the document, it reads, “unable to complete,” which Operation Rescue believes is a sign that the abortion was not completed due to the woman’s injury.

The record also notes that the woman suffered obstetric trauma with heavy vaginal bleeding and low blood pressure. She needed “advanced life support” for a “Level 2” traumatic injury, which is often a serious injury that would require hospitalization and intensive care. Despite this, the ambulance transported her to the nearest emergency room without lights and sirens — a standard request from abortion facilities that don’t want to draw attention to the victims leaving their doors. This request can cause a patient’s transport to be expedited less efficiently than if transported with lights and sirens.

“Though this woman was suffering from life-threatening complications, the 911 records indicate she was transferred to a nearby hospital emergency room with no lights or sirens,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Abortion clinics often request no lights and sirens to downplay or completely hide the associated dangers. Most women never imagine they will leave the abortion clinic in an ambulance with life-threatening injuries.”

Northland Family Planning commits late-term abortions on women through 24 weeks, or even later if the child is diagnosed with a fetal anomaly. The most common second-trimester abortion procedure is a dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortion, in which the child is torn apart limb by limb. This horrific procedure carries a number of side effects, including perforation or laceration of the uterus or cervix, with possible damage to the bowel, bladder, and other maternal organs. Infection and hemorrhage can also occur.

This abortion facility also has a history of injuring women, both in Southfield and at its other Michigan locations. This instance is the fourth report Operation Rescue has received of a woman hemorrhaging at this facility.
