A woman was rushed to a local emergency room from a Planned Parenthood abortion center after what appears to be a botched abortion. Local pro-life advocates who witnessed the transportation of the woman in an ambulance confirmed Planned Parenthood is doing abortions today.
The woman was sent from the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic to St. Luke’s Hospital in Boise, where she was admitted to the Emergency Room. Pro-life activists documented the incident with photos and video.
This potential botched abortion comes just weeks after a woman died at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Chicago, Illinois. Twenty-four-year-old Tonya Reaves died from hemorrhage after receiving an abortion at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.
With this latest apparent botched abortion, Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation, called on pro-abortion President Barack Obama to back off his support for taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood.
“Mr. President, yet another woman has been hospitalized after a visit to Planned Parenthood. We ask that instead of shamelessly promoting your campaign contributor, Planned Parenthood, that you show some human compassion for the plight of the vulnerable pregnant women they are harming and stop supporting and funding them,” he said. “This is more evidence that Planned Parenthood is out of control and posing a serious threat to the lives and health of women nationwide. This is the eleventh medical emergency documented by Operation Rescue at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in the past 18 months.”
Newman said Planned Parenthood has been racked with scandal in recent months. Whistleblower suits filed by former Planned Parenthood employees in California, Texas, and Iowa allege massive billing fraud as several affiliates have been forced to close due to financial malfeasance. There was public outcry after documentation surfaced that Planned Parenthood specifically targets minority communities, especially Blacks, for abortion. A Planned Parenthood affiliate in Kansas faces criminal charges for illegal late-term abortions.
“We are especially concerned for the safety of women at the Boise Planned Parenthood after today’s incident. We will work together with other activists in Idaho to ensure that this incident is thoroughly investigated by the proper authorities,” said Newman.
