North Carolina Planned Parenthood tries to hide emergency for patient ‘bleeding non-stop’

Planned Parenthood, Lancaster

The Planned Parenthood facility in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, recently sent a patient to the hospital following a botched abortion, telling 911 that the patient was severely hemorrhaging. Yet the call logs also show that facility staff didn’t want anyone to find out about the medical emergency.

Pro-life watchdog organization Operation Rescue obtained the 911 records for an emergency that took place at the Chapel Hill Planned Parenthood on February 26, 2022. The 31-year-old patient was said to be “bleeding non-stop” after an abortion.

Two people, a male and a female, spoke with 911 dispatchers, but their voices were altered by a city records custodian. During the conversation, the Planned Parenthood staffers admitted that the woman was in severe pain and was bleeding uncontrollably. Operation Rescue reported that there was concern that the EMTs may not have been able to fit down the hallway, based on the 911 dispatch conversation.

The staffers also seemed to be more concerned about keeping the emergency a secret, seemingly requesting no sirens to be used by the ambulance, and telling the dispatcher to make sure the EMTs entered the building through the side door instead of the front.

The patient was taken to UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill for emergency care. Her condition is not known at this point, nor the extent of her injury. While it’s unclear which abortionist was responsible for this botched abortion, one of the abortionists working there, Marcela Smid, has faced several malpractice lawsuits and disciplinary action for newborn deaths and prescription fraud.

“Any abortion facility that does not have gurney access to patient areas is endangering the lives of women they pretend to care about. However, whenever states try to pass laws ensuring that emergency personnel can easily reach women in medical distress at abortion facilities, it is Planned Parenthood that is the first to object,” Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said in a statement. “They also try to keep incidents like this secret so no one will learn the truth about how dangerous abortions and the facilities that do them really are. This time, thanks to an alert pro-life activist who tipped us to this emergency, Planned Parenthood’s secret is out.”
