Pensacola, Florida Abortion Mill Nearly Kills Women By Ignoring Safety Standards
|Washington, D.C.: “The big lie of the abortion industry is that they care about the health and safety of women,” said Phyllis Schlafly Eagles president Ed Martin. “The appalling case of the American Family Planning Abortion Clinic in Pensacola, Florida shows exactly how depraved these so-called ‘healthcare professionals’ truly are.”|
The Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration issued an emergency shutdown order after two women were nearly killed in botched abortions at the facility. The “clinic” violated requirements regarding the monitoring of patient vital signs, so it is impossible to know just how much blood was lost, but emergency responders in one case reported “pools of blood” in the room where the abortion took place. Due to the incompetence of the abortionist and a total disregard for medical ethics, the woman was forced to have a complete hysterectomy at a hospital to remediate the damage.
In the other case, the woman was discharged around midnight and went to a hospital, where it was discovered that the botched abortion had resulted in undetectable blood pressure and low oxygen levels. Thankfully, the woman was able to be revived before it was too late.
“Democrats like Sen. Elizabeth Warren say that they can’t think of one restriction they would place on abortion,” Martin continued, “but that disregard for safety protocols leads to the deaths of vulnerable women every year. Being ‘pro-abortion’ is not being ‘pro-woman’ if this butchery does not disturb you to the core.
“The misconduct of the American Family Planning Abortion Clinic was discovered by pro-life activists with the watchdog group Reprotection. Not only did they successfully save other women who could have been victimized by this abortion mill, but they proved that citizens with courage and conviction can beat the billion-dollar abortion industry. Who else will take a stand to protect the women of their communities?”
