To close out 2020, newly released records show that a Chicago abortion clinic sent a 27-year-old woman to the hospital after aborting her child.

Family Planning Associates on West Washington Boulevard in Chicago, according to 911 records obtained by the Pro-Life Action League, damaged the young woman's womb during an abortion on New Year's Eve. An audio recording of a 911 call made by the clinic was made public by Operation Rescue.

While on the 911 call, an employee with Family Planning Associates said, “We have a patient who just had a surgical abortion.  We believe that she has an injury to her uterus, and we need an ambulance to go to Northwestern Hospital.”

The damage caused by a lacerated or perforated uterus is potentially deadly. Some cases require emergency surgery or even hysterectomy- the surgical removal of a woman's uterus.

According to Operation Rescue, this is the eleventh known medical emergency requiring an ambulance to transport a patient from Family Planning Associates in the past three years.

“I’m sure that no woman ever walks into an abortion facility thinking she will suffer a botched abortion or end up sterile, but this happens more often than people think,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We want women to know that no matter what the abortion businesses say, abortion is not safe. Women seeking abortions are literally rolling the dice with their health future and their lives. We pray instead that pregnant women will seek out life-affirming help with whatever challenges they face.  It may just save them much grief in the end.”
