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 at OH Abortion Clinic: She's 21.3 Wks & Something Went Wrong During the Procedure
911 at Cleveland Abortion Clinic: She's 21.3 Weeks & Something Went Wrong During the Procedure
March 3, 2016
OH -- A new 911 audio recording just obtained by Operation Rescue has
revealed that a 22-year old abortion patient suffered a
life-threatening medical emergency during late-term abortion Preterm in
Cleveland, Ohio. This is the same abortion facility that inflicted a
fatal abortion on another 22-year old woman, Lakisha Wilson, nearly two years ago.
The incident took place on February 13, 2016. This is the eleventh documented abortion injury at Preterm since 2010.
The young woman was 21.3 weeks pregnant, according to the Preterm
worker that dialed 911. Such late-term abortions are inherently risky,
yet Preterm is inadequately equipped to handle complications that seem
to arise there on a regular basis.
Curiously, while the Preterm employee who called 911 knew details
of the patient's care, she did not know - or would not say - exactly
what "went wrong" during the late-term abortion.
Dispatcher: Tell me exactly what happened.
We're an abortion facility. She was in the middle of an abortion.
She's 21.3 weeks. And something went wrong during the procedure.
Moments later the dispatcher again asked what happened.
Dispatcher: What went wrong? Does she like have - Is she awake still?
Preterm: I don't know, ma'am. I'm not in the room. So I'm assuming bleeding. Maybe a perforation? I don't know.
The only gurney access to the third-floor procedure rooms is
through a frequently malfunctioning elevator. The patient was brought
out a back door of the facility that leads to the rear stairwell.
There is no access to the elevator from that door. (See Floor Plan.)
medical emergencies in the past five years is simply unacceptable.
Women walk in but they don't walk out," said Newman. "The public has a
right to be protected from such shoddy and incompetent practices. For
years, Ohio Department of Health inspectors have taken note of one
abortion-related injury after another but have continually neglected to
hold Preterm accountable, even in light of the avoidable death of
Lakisha Wilson. It's time to shut down this house of horrors before
anyone else ends up on a slab in the morgue."
Operation Rescue is
working through the legal and regulatory system with Cleveland Right
to Life, Right to Life of North East Ohio, Lake County Right to Life,
Created Equal, and others to protect women and their babies from
further harm at Preterm.
