Audio of a 911 call released this week by a pro-life organization in Cleveland reveals that a woman who was “bleeding heavy” was left outside of Preterm abortion clinic because the workers wanted to go home for the day.
The recording, obtained by Operation Rescue, provides audio from a November 9 911 call of a woman who had just received an abortion telling the operator that she’s “outside Preterm” and is “bleeding heavy.”
“Like they just—they just left me bleeding like this,” the woman says. The operator proceeds to ask the woman if there’s a “room number” that she’s in.
“No, I’m sitting by the door,” she says. “I didn’t know I’m bleeding heavy and I don’t want to go home bleeding like this.”
The woman states that she was discharged, but says “everybody was just ready to go,” and expressed frustration that she was “treated like that.”
“Yes, they’re ready to lock up,” the 25-year-old woman continues, noting that her breathing was not normal. The woman goes on to state that she’s “bleeding through [her] clothes.”
According to The Daily Caller, Preterm abortion clinic has a history of botched procedures, and has performed ten botched abortions since 2011. In 2014, patient Lakisha Wilson died during her procedure at the clinic after its workers delayed calling 911.
In March 2015, the clinic injured two separate patients, according to Live Action, who notes that discharging a patient before she is stable is a violation of patient care standards.
The latest story has been largely uncovered by Cleveland media, including Cleveland.com, one of the area’s leading news sources. The outlet has, however, reported on vandalism that occurred at the clinic, as well as the clinic’s billboard campaign, which consisted of signs posted throughout the area with taglines such as, “abortion is life-saving,” and “abortion is safer than childbirth.”
“This incident shows a gross lack of concern for women on the part of the Preterm workers. They just wanted to leave fore the day and really didn’t care that this woman was bleeding,” Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said. “This is exactly how women die. This woman was fortunate that she was able to get help on her own.”
