Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

911: CA Woman Hemorrhaged Half Her Blood After Medication Abortion
911: California Woman Hemorrhaged Half Her Blood After Medication Abortion
January 28, 2014
911 Medication Abortion Patient Hemorrhaged Rushed to Hospital
Downey, CA - Operation
Rescue has obtained a 911 recording of a medical emergency at Family
Planning Associates (FPA) abortion clinic in Downey, California, that
indicated an abortion patient had suffered massive hemorrhage. The
incident took place two days before Christmas.
The FPA employee who placed
the call initially indicated that they simply needed to transfer a
patient to the hospital. When the dispatcher questioned further, the
abortion clinic employee responded, "It's a patient who's no longer
bleeding, but her hematocrit's off to 19. So we want to transfer her
for a - to Downy Regional to get a transfusion."
The caller later indicated that the cause of the emergency was a medication abortion.
A hematocrit level of 19 is
considered seriously low and is indicative of massive hemorrhage, which
is a known complication of medication abortion. A patient with this
number would have lost over half her blood volume and would require a
transfusion. Hematocrit tests measure the percentage of red blood cells
in the blood. A normal range for women is 36-45.
"The fact that this patient
had lost so much blood is extremely worrisome. Medication abortions
are unsupervised and this woman could very well have died from blood
loss," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "This is more
evidence that the abortion pill is not as safe as abortionists would
have us believe and more evidence that the number of abortion pill
complications are grossly unreliable. No one would have never known
what happened to this 23-year old woman if it had not been for a
pro-life activist on the scene at the time."
