The following comes from an Oct. 25 posting by Operation Rescue.
After just 42 days in business, a patient at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Victorville was rushed to the hospital suffering from an unspecified medical emergency.
However, the Victorville clinic is not supposed to be doing abortions. The incident raises questions about what services are actually going on inside that Planned Parenthood office, and whether the emergency was related to abortion.
An ambulance arrived at the Planned Parenthood clinic at about 5:30 p.m. on October 21, a half hour after the business was scheduled to close for the day. A woman was removed from the clinic on a gurney and rushed to the hospital.
The incident was reported to Operation Rescue by a local pro-life activist who filmed the incident on a cell phone.
“This is the first medical emergency at this Planned Parenthood, but it surely won’t be the last. Pro-life supporters who worked to prevent this clinic from opening were correct to be concerned for women’s safety, as this incident shows,” said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue. “The city council that approved this dangerous abortion operation bears responsibility for every injury and death.”

Sure the Victorville Planned Parenthood wasn’t going to perform abortions. But you really didn’t expect them to tell the truth, did you!
Many of the people who supported legalizing abortion were horrified to learn how many women were mutilated, many made permanently unable to bear children to term, and how many women and girls died following botched illegal abortions. The pro-legalization movement was not primarily an approval of abortion by its supporters but a wish to have abortions performed for those who insisted on it, in a clean, medically competent setting so that women might live through these procedures.
Society has obviously forgotten about that, having become inured to the concept of murdering babies inside their mother’s wombs and is now loosening standards for training abortion providers. Back alley abortions are still being performed, sometimes in settings where untrained personnel, or failed doctors, perform abortions “off the record,” for sub rosa cash payments. I’ve heard lots of stories and am grieved that not only babies in their mothers’ wombs are in danger, but so are the aborting mothers themselves.
As the granddaughter of a woman who died at 23 at the hands of a criminal abortionist, I grew up with a father who literally had no mother from the age of 3 onward, and a motherless child grows up to be a wounded human being indeed. Every child needs a mother, even those whose mothers choose to murder the child’s younger siblings.
If abortion is made illegal again, after all we’ve learned as a society, perhaps people would learn that abortion is murder, and murder is never the answer to the inconvenient child’s appearance in one’s life; there are so many other options available which are far, far superior to murdering babies!
As a nation with excellent resources for finding new homes for dogs, cats, and unwanted bunnies, surely we could readily again establish functioning, workable systems for placing American children in loving and suitable homes without slamming them into oblivion before they are even born and burying them only God knows where and how, or burying their aborting mothers in everlasting shame.
