Botched Abortion In Missouri Sends Woman To Hospital

Abortion may be legal in America but it is never safe. From Life Site News:
A Planned Parenthood (PP) facility in St. Louis, MO called for emergency ambulance transportation for a botched abortion victim on Saturday, reports Operation Rescue.

According to the pro-life organization, the woman was removed from the abortion facility on a stretcher and transported by ambulance to local Barnes-Jewish-Christian Hospital. Witness and pro-life sidewalk counselor Marty Bennet took numerous photographs during the event.

Saturday’s emergency transport is just one of many such incidents that have taken place at the St. Louis facility during the last two years, said Bennet in a written statement. “From June 2009 until April 2010, nine ambulances have been at Planned Parenthood and each time a client was transported to Barnes Hospital,” wrote Bennet. “Is this safe medical care?”

At the time of the incident, Bennet left contact information offering help on the vehicle that accompanied the ambulance to the hospital. Later, the husband of the woman phoned Bennet to thank him for his concern and assure him that his wife was in stable condition.

“This incident in St. Louis only underscores the dangers of abortion mills in America, which all too often operate without accountability or oversight,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Our tax money should not be used to prop up shady and dangerous abortion businesses that prey on the vulnerable and act as if they are above the law.”

PP has faced a series of scandals in recent weeks, fueling public distrust in the abortion giant’s agenda. The pro-life group Live Action has released a number of undercover videos showing the abortion giant willing to aid and abet underage sex trafficking.

Yesterday, Live Action pointed out that in their previous video on a Planned Parenthood facility in Virginia, a PP staffer had advised one of their undercover reporters posing as a pimp, who said he was concerned that he might have an STD, to get it checked out by donating blood.

“I tell a lot of people… if you’re not quite sure… for peace of mind, go donate blood – cause if you go donate blood, they have to test for everything anyway. And you know, a lot of plasma places, they’ll test you for free,” said the PP staffer...
