A Planned Parenthood in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has sent another patient to the hospital within the span of about one month.
Operation Rescue reports this as the “26th documented emergency at any abortion facility nationwide so far this year.”
On April 7th, the Planned Parenthood facility called an ambulance for a 22-year-old African-American woman who was bleeding “so severely that she needed emergency hospital care.” On March 2nd, an unconscious African-American patient was transported by ambulance to the hospital from the same facility.
One particular Planned Parenthood facility holds the distinction of being called the “most dangerous” abortion facility in the country — Planned Parenthood of St. Louis. Since 2009, this location has sent more than 60 patients (that we know of) to the hospital by ambulance. Multiple health and safety violations have also been discovered during inspections of the facility. Live Action News reported in January of this year:
According to Operation Rescue, the reports reveal “39 classes of violations involving 210 incidents – 53% (111) of which were related to failure to provide a safe and sanitary environment.” Inspections “took place in 2009, 2013, 2015, and 2016” but 61 percent of the 210 incidents occurred just last year, in 2016.
Abortion carries with it many risks, even in the first trimester. The abortion industry tends to downplay the multiple risks of abortion, as explained in the video below by former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino:
