Planned Parenthood Clinic Refuses to Give Information and Hangs up on 911 Dispatcher

During a conversation with a 911 dispatcher, a Planned Parenthood employee refused to give information about the nature of a medical emergency one of their patients were experiencing. The employee went as far as to hang up on the dispatcher rather than answer her questions.

911 call records obtained by Operation Rescue show that the incident occurred on July 23, 2020, at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Cincinnati, Ohio. The clinic first placed an emergency call using an internet phone line that routed it through an intermediary call center. This delayed the emergency response. Even after this, the Planned Parenthood caller refused to answer questions and hung up on the 911 dispatcher.

Here is a short excerpt from the call records:

911: About how old is she?

PP: [Cross talk] . . . I can’t give you that right now.  Again —

911: Is it a female?  We need to get this information to the paramedics, ma’am.  They need to have the equipment ready.

PP:  Again, I’m calling from Planned Parenthood. We’re currently experiencing a medical emergency. We have physicians that are with the patient and they’ll be waiting for the paramedics’ arrival. Thank you.

After that, the caller hangs up. This kind of behavior is irresponsible and inexcusable when someone is experiencing an emergency and needs medical attention quickly. Women who feel they need abortions are not just profit opportunities for abortion clinics. They are real people whose lives matter. Planned Parenthood is showing that it does not believe the same, and it is willing to risk a woman's life so that it can hide abortion complications from 911 records.
