Two women rushed to hospital for injuries received at Detroit abortion facility

Scotsdale Women’s Center in Detroit, Michigan, has injured two patients who were rushed to the emergency room after botched abortions at the facility. Operation Rescue reports that 911 records show emergencies on March 16 and April 25, 2019.

The first, a 20-year-old woman, was undergoing a late-term 24-week abortion on March 16 when the abortionist tore a hole in her uterus. This is one of the potential complications of a Dilation and Evacuation or D&E abortion which is used to kill babies between 15 and 24 weeks gestation at Scotsdale Women’s Center. As shown in the video below, during a D&E abortion, the abortionist dismembers the child one limb at a time before crushing his or her skull. A child at 24 weeks is capable of surviving outside of the womb and is able to feel pain:


A hole in the uterus could lead to trouble sustaining pregnancy in the future, since scarring can prevent a newly-created human being from implanting in the uterine wall. It could also lead to a hysterectomy or a condition called peritonitis which is caused by an infection and can be fatal.

The ambulance arrived at the “back-alley” entrance to the Scotsdale Women’s Center and took the woman to Sinai Grace Hospital for medical treatment that the abortion facility is not equipped to provide.

A second woman suffered hemorrhaging at the same abortion facility on April 25 during an abortion at 12 weeks and three days gestation. The facility told the 911 dispatcher that there was “some bleeding, not serious” which makes no sense.

“Some bleeding is normal during abortions, so if it was not serious, why transport the woman to the hospital? Either the woman’s hemorrhage was being downplayed in the event we got the records, or something else happened during the abortion that required emergency hospitalization, which was kept from the 911 dispatcher,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

Scotsdale Women’s Center uses suction abortion up to 14 weeks gestation, which is exactly at it sounds. The preborn child is suctioned out of the uterus and torn to pieces in the process, as explained in the video below by former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino. Some research indicates children at this age are capable of feeling pain even more intensely than adults. A complication is hemorrhaging and this patient was taken to Sinai Grace Hospital since the abortion facility was unable to provide her with care after they injured her.



This facility also injured patients in October of 2015 and October of 2018. According to Operation Rescue, Scotsdale Women’s Center employs abortionist Franklyn Seabrooks — who was placed on probation, suspended, and ordered not to commit second-trimester abortions during his probation after he attempted a suction abortion on a woman who was near full term because he thought she was just 9 to 10 weeks pregnant. The woman gave birth to a son who suffered from sepsis, abrasions and other complications from the three abortion attempts on his life.
