On Palm Sunday, the Trust Women Wichita abortion business committed about 40 abortions, according to pro-life watchdog group Operation Rescue. One patient, however, was badly injured, leading the abortion facility to call for an ambulance to take the woman to Wesley Medical Center.
According to pro-life activists present outside the facility, at about 1:20 p.m., an ambulance arrived and left without taking a patient, but then returned a few minutes later as a woman was taken out of Trust Women Wichita on a gurney with a covering over her. The ambulance did not use lights or sirens, which is commonly requested abortion businesses in order to not draw attention to their emergencies. When an ambulance does not use lights and sirens it increases the emergency response time and puts injured patients at higher risk.
Pro-life activist and nurse Jennifer McCoy told Operation Rescue that the abortion facility’s security guard, Carl Swinney, threatened to assault another pro-life woman present on Palm Sunday who had been taking pictures of the incident. McCoy has a personal protective order against Swinney, who was convicted of battering her in 2016 when she was praying outside of Trust Women Wichita.
On April 1, 2020, commissioners in Sedgwick County — where Trust Women Wichita is located — voted 4-1 to limit abortions during the coronavirus pandemic since abortions are non-essential procedures, and a matter of “choice” according to abortion proponents. The vote was largely based on the fact that women were driving from other states to Kansas — including from COVID-19 “hotspot” state Louisiana — amid the pandemic in order to undergo elective abortions despite the recommendation from the government for citizens to halt unnecessary domestic travel. That vote to halt elective abortions in Kansas has not been carried out as of yet as it is now in the hands of chief county health officer Dr. Garold Minns, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and Governor Laura Kelly. Kelly is an abortion supporter who considers abortion essential and will likely not call for the suspension of abortions.
