Abortion is supposed to be “safe, legal and rare.” Except for the unborn child of course. It’s nothing more than an inconvenient mass of tissue, an uninvited parasite that doesn’t have a right to life.
But unborn babies aren’t the only victims in abortions. Besides the mental problems that are invariably caused by abortions, there are also cases of physical injury or even death of the mother following a “botched” abortion.
A Houston, Texas, Planned Parenthood abortion clinic injured 5 women in botched abortions in just the past month or so. Breitbart reported:
Five women have reportedly required emergency medical care after being injured during abortion procedures at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Houston within the past thirty days.
According to a report by Life News on Tuesday, the incidents happened at the Planned Parenthood Center for Choice, located at 4600 Gulf Freeway, and pro-life sidewalk counselors observed the women being transported by ambulance to nearby hospitals. Life News described four of the incidents, and the most recent one happened just days ago and was documented on a pro-life group’s Facebook page.
The first two emergencies took place on January 31, and February 6, 2015, according to Life News, when sidewalk counselors from Houston Coalition for Life observed ambulances leaving the Planned Parenthood clinic.
Operation Rescue covered the second incident in more detail, posting a report on their website describing how an ambulance was “seen headed in the direction of Ben Taub Hospital,” where other women injured by abortions at this same Planned Parenthood facility were also sent, and then it “turned off lights and sirens when leaving the Planned Parenthood abortion facility on Gulf Coast and only reactivated them after turning the corner onto another street.”
The next two incidents occurred on February 25 and 26, 2015, and again, sidewalk counselors observed women transported by ambulance from the abortion clinic. Houston Coalition for Life took photographs of the ambulances and posted them on their Facebook page.
“This afternoon another Ambulance was seen transporting someone from the Planned Parenthood on I45. That makes 4 in less than 30 days!” said one post dated February 26. “If you saw a ‘clinic’ with an ambulance leaving on average once a week, would you want to trust their medical practices?”
Then, on February 28, Houston Coalition for Life added a new post to their Facebook page, describing a fifth woman taken by ambulance to the hospital: “Another Ambulance carried a person out from Planned Parenthood today (February 28th) This is the 3rd one seen this calendar week and the 5th in 30 Days. We will be posting picture and more updates Monday. Please pray that anyone who is unfortunate enough to enter that place of horror also exits without being harmed – unborn baby included.”
Liberals will likely find a way to blame these atrocities on the GOP. Perhaps they’d say that since Republicans are trying desperately to “control women’s uteruses” by attempting to systematically outlaw abortion in Texas, all the “safe” clinics are being shut down, leaving only the ones that are limited in their resources to provide quality “reproductive healthcare” to these mothers. I would say that if these women wanted to be safe, they’d be much better off mentally and physically if they had just kept their babies and went through with childbirth. Oh, but that’s “forcing childbirth.”
