Atlanta, GA – “Today is a rainy day in Atlanta, and like the song says, ‘I feel like it’s raining all over the world,” said Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life.

“As my friends Dr. Day Gardner, National Black Prolife Union and Pastor Walter Moss, National Black Prolife Coalition, join the funeral march of Lakisha Wilson who was butchered and killed at the Preterm Abortion mill, I am praying that God will comfort her family as well as bring justice for all mothers and their babies, all victims of abortion.”

Lakisha’s family is still reeling in shock over her late-term abortion and consequent death at the Preterm Abortion Clinic in Cleveland. Although she reportedly died on the day of her abortion, her body was kept on life support for days pending harvesting of her organs. “They didn’t value her life and her child’s, but they wanted her remains. Horrendous,” said Dr. King

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of PFL said: “Lakisha had her whole life ahead of her but she died because our nation still allows abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy.”

“The Wilson family’s tragedy is the shame of our nation,” said Dr. King. “Abortion is decimating the African-American community. Black women who make up just 13 percent of the population account for 36 percent of the abortions. And black mothers like Lakisha are also counted among abortion’s victims.”

“Lakisha is a victim of ‘choice,’ just like Tonya Reaves was in 2012 when Planned Parenthood let her bleed to death after a botched abortion,” Dr. King said. “Our women are dying and people like Nancy Pelosi are calling for more abortion. America needs to recognize it has a problem. Abortion is never the answer.”

Janet Morana, Executive Director of PFL and author of RECALL ABORTION, asks, “How many dead women are too many? Abortion is a harmful product that should be taken off the market before one more woman dies. It is way past time to recall abortion.”

Noting that there are now hundreds of documented deaths of mothers killed by “abortion complications,” Dr. King concluded: “Abortion is taking place in houses of horrors. Babies and women are dying. It is shameful. We must pray, we must expose the truth, we must demand regulations of these butchers. We must not allow Lakisha’s death to pass us by in vain.”

NEW YORK, NY – Priests for Life today called on the U.S. Senate to take action on a bill that would protect children from abortion after 20 weeks.

Commenting on the death of Lakisha Wilson, 22, following what her family described as a late-term abortion at the Preterm Abortion Clinic in Cleveland, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said:

“This bill is meant to protect unborn children from the brutal and painful death of a dismemberment abortion, but it also would save the young mothers who are often butchered during this procedure. Lakisha Wilson had her whole life ahead of her but she died because our nation still allows abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy.

“The Wilson family’s tragedy is the shame of our nation.” Dr. Alveda King, Director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life, noted that abortion is decimating the African-American community. Black women who make up just 13 percent of the population account for 36 percent of the abortions. And black mothers also are counted among abortion’s victims.

“Lakisha Wilson is a victim of ‘choice,’ just like Tonya Reaves was in 2012 when Planned Parenthood let her bleed to death after a botched abortion,” Dr. King said. “Our women are dying and people like Nancy Pelosi are calling for more abortion. America needs to recognize it has a problem. Abortion is never the answer.”

Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life, said Americans are outraged when automakers and pharmaceutical companies fail to recall products they know are deadly, but that abortionists get a pass.

“How many dead women are too many? Four women that we know of have been killed by abortionists in the last two years alone,” said Ms. Morana, author of the book, “Recall Abortion.”

“Abortion is a harmful product that should be taken off the market before one more woman dies,” she said. “It is way past time to recall abortion.”

The National Black Prolife Coalition Joins Operation Rescue in Mourning, Demanding Justice for Abortion Death of a Young Ohio Woman, Lakisha Wilson

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

For the naysayers that say the Pro-Life Movement is only about saving babies, we ask the objective public to consider that Pro-Life means from conception or fertilization until natural death, and includes protecting the lives of babies, children, mothers, fathers, families, the sick and the infirm. Point in case, the abortion camp has killed yet another mother, causing the growing number of abortion deaths to further surface before the public eye.

The battle for the seed and the womb continues as another woman, Lakisha Wilson, dies in a fatal abortion. Abortion advocates continue to deny that they are obstructing mothers’ and children’s rights to live. Point in case; another African American woman has died due to abortion, this one at the Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. What many people do not realize in the aftermath of this recent case is that hundreds of women have died from “legal abortions” in America.

Thankfully, the numbers of street activists that serve as our eyes and ears on the fronts of these abortion houses of horrors are increasing. For example, African American leaders were at the forefront of the Kermit Gosnell case in Philadelphia. As Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, I am honored to join my brothers and sisters and other activists to further expose the atrocities of the abuse of mothers and their children in these butcher shops.

Most recently in Cleveland, Ohio, Operation Rescue has released a 911 recording and Computer Aided Dispatch transcript that indicates a patient of Preterm, a Cleveland, Ohio, abortion clinic, has died.

Records, which were obtained through a public records request, show that at 10:59 a.m. on Friday, March 21, 2014, an employee of Preterm dialed 911 and reported to a dispatcher there was a 22-year-old female patient at the clinic who was not breathing at all.

The caller also indicated that the patient was unconscious and receiving CPR at the time of the call, but efforts to restart respiration had been unsuccessful.

“It’s ironic that the abortion cartel has complained so loudly about the new abortion clinic standards in Ohio. Based on Friday’s incident, it appears that the regulations aren’t strict enough,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

“If it had not been for alert pro-life activists, this tragedy surely would have been swept under the rug. But now, we plan to submit complaints in order to hold the Preterm abortion clinic and staff accountable so this doesn’t happen to another woman.”

The CAD transcript, which lists event chronology for 911 emergencies, showed that units were dispatched just moments after the 911 call began and that it took paramedics three minutes to arrive at the clinic at 11:02 a.m. when they began emergency measures.

At 11:21, paramedics transmitted information about the patient’s condition to the University Hospital Case Medical Center and began to transport her to the emergency room, arriving at 11:26 a.m.

At no time during the 28 minutes that emergency responders were in contact with the patient was there any indication that the patient ever resumed respiration.

The CAD Transcript contained the “9-E-1,” the most serious of life-threatening medical emergencies, along with the notations “Cardiac or Respiratory Arrest/Death” and “Not breathing at all.”

Pastor Dale Henkel was on the scene and took video and photos of the incident, which have been released by Operation Rescue in a video that also features the 911 audio. He told Operation Rescue that the patient was African-American, as are about 80 percent of the high-volume clinic’s abortion business.

The video clip (below) showed that emergency workers were not performing any kind of treatment on the woman as she was wheeled on a gurney to the awaiting ambulance. There appeared to be a small towel over the woman’s face.

It has also come to light that the victim of this deadly abortion was an organ donor, and for that reason was kept on life support until her organs could be harvested. Many people do not realize that the pro-death camp is often involved in organ harvesting, where the organs of the unwary donors are often valued more than the lives of those who have to die to give up their body parts. This of course is human trafficking that people want to deny.

Since 2014 is the year that marks the 50th Anniversary of The Civil Rights Act, let’s agree to further shine the light on the truth that the civil rights to life of mothers and their children are being heinously violated at these often unregulated or under-regulated abortion butcher shops. Let freedom ring for the mothers and the babies.
