Pro-life onlookers at Hope Clinic for Women (HCFW) recorded at least two instances last month when women left the facility in ambulances.

Over the past two years, sidewalk counselors and Operation Rescue have documented 11 medical emergencies at that location.

HCFW, rather than sending patients to a hospital in Illinois, has them sent to St. Louis, Missouri. The owner's husband has gynecology privileges there.

Operation Rescue obtained a recording of the 911 call from April 6, 2022. In that call, the HCFW employee cheerfully requests an ambulance for a woman with excessive bleeding.

“The Hope Clinic for Women continues to habitually endanger the lives of pregnant women in the process of profiting from destroying the lives of their innocent babies,” said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue. “Illinois is a state that recently liberalized their abortion laws. Should Roe v. Wade be overturned, that facility is poised to profit greatly from the increase in abortion clients, so we can only expect the number of women maimed during their obviously negligent abortions to increase.”
