Flossmoor, IL Planned Parenthood Calls Ambulance Two Days in a Row

Operation Rescue found that a Planned Parenthood clinic in Flossmoor, Illinois had patients picked up by ambulances two days in a row near the beginning of this month. In the first of these cases, the abortion clinic delayed the response by calling a private ambulance company roughly 20 minutes away. The next day, the same Planned Parenthood clinic called 911 to get an ambulance to pick up a patient with a "possible uterine perforation."

A pro-life bystander provided footage from May 7 to Operation Rescue showing a private ambulance from Dalton, Illinois loading a patient in a gurney into the back for transport. The ambulance did not appear to be using its lights and sirens, which abortion clinics sometimes request in order to minimize the negative PR that comes with harming their patients during dangerous abortion procedures. If the private ambulance had its sirens turned off for the full duration of its trip from Dalton, Operation Rescue estimated the trip would take 22 minutes. This is an obviously slow response time for an emergency situation.

On May 8, the Planned Parenthood clinic in Flossmoor injured yet another patient, but this time the clinic called 911. In a recording of the call obtained by Operation Rescue, an employee describes the injury as a "possible perf," which confuses the 911 operator. The employee then describes the injury as a "possible uterine perforation." This injury is caused by an abortionist tearing a hole in a woman's uterus while trying to remove the remains of a dead child during a surgical abortion. Uterine perforation can lead to hemorrhage, future infertility, or damage to other internal organs depending on the severity. The Planned Parenthood employee's use of slang to describe the injury implies that it is fairly common.
