Flossmoor Planned Parenthood Hospitalizes Two Women within Two Weeks

The Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Flossmoor, Illinois hospitalized two women within a two-week span in July.

Operation Rescue, a pro-life organization that documents medical emergencies caused by abortion businesses, obtained 911 records for both incidents. The first occurred on July 13, and the second occurred on July 25. You can listen to recordings of the 911 calls here.

On July 13, a Planned Parenthood employee called 911 to request an ambulance for a 29-year-old woman. The patient was having a seizure following an abortion she received 45 minutes prior.

During a surgical abortion, seizures could be caused by accidental intravascular injection of anesthetic or blood loss from uterine perforation.

Abortion via pill could also cause seizures. Misoprostol, the second pill in the abortion pill regimen, can cause hemorrhaging and lead to seizures.

On July 25, a different employee called 911 to request an ambulance for a woman with "uncontrolled bleeding from the cervix." This is most likely caused by uterine perforation during a surgical abortion.

Operation Rescue only obtains 911 records for emergencies after they are reported by pro-life sidewalk counselors or other witnesses.
