Valentine’s Day abortion injury sends hemorrhaging woman to hospital


A Valentine’s Day injury at an abortion facility nearly turned deadly in Wichita, Kansas, with a woman bleeding so heavily that she needed to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. Operation Rescue obtained the emergency dispatch records, while its president, Troy Newman, personally witnessed the departure of the ambulance from the facility.

The woman arrived at the Trust Women abortion facility, which operates in the same building formerly used by the late George Tiller, on Monday. While it isn’t clear what abortion procedure this woman had, Trust Women commits abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy, by which point a baby has a chance of surviving outside the womb with medical intervention.

The audio of the 911 call was not available, but the ambulance was dispatched for a “pregnancy hemorrhage,” and the ambulance left with both lights and sirens on. Typically, ambulances don’t run with lights and sirens on unless the patient needs to get to the hospital as quickly as possible.


While at the scene, Newman was also accosted by Carl Swinney, the security guard for Trust Women. Swinney has a history of violent behavior, including battery against a female pro-life sidewalk counselor, who successfully obtained a protection order against him. As soon as that protection order expired in 2021, Swinney resumed his harassment of the woman, Jennifer McCoy, who then received another protection order against him. He carries a loaded pistol and has threatened to shoot McCoy, in addition to the battery he committed against her.

Swinney, who is reported to have a history of alcoholism and drunk driving, is believed to be homeless and living at the abortion facility.

This is far from the first injury at Trust Women. Operation Rescue reported that there have been eight medical emergencies there that they know of. “[I]n Kansas, abortion facilities are not licensed or inspected,” Newman said in a statement. “When women are injured at abortion facilities, medical oversight agencies essentially turn a blind eye. Kansas is a strong pro-life state, but the state government has betrayed the people in favor of keeping abortionists unaccountable for the harm they cause.”
