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.
