A week ago, on May 14, 2019, a young woman was transported by ambulance from a Walnut Creek Planned Parenthood abortion facility.
A radio audio clip for this emergency reveals the dispatcher informing emergency personnel of a Code 3 emergency, meaning that the ambulance is required to run with lights and sirens while responding to the call. The dispatcher also said that the young woman was twenty two.
A local 40 Days for Life volunteer provided photographs to Operation Rescue showing a young Hispanic woman on a gurney outside Planned Parenthood as she was pushed to a Contra Costa County ambulance for transport, presumably to a nearby hospital emergency room.
According to Operation Rescue, the abortion clinic provides abortions up to twenty-three weeks, however, the Planned Parenthood clinic’s website states it performs abortions up to thirteen weeks.
“Planned Parenthood poses a menace to the public. We are seeing an increase in the number of women transported by ambulance to hospitals because Planned Parenthood is incapable of handling even the most common and expected abortion complications. This is a pretty much a daily occurrence nationally,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It’s a fact that women have even died at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities due to their negligence and lack of basic concern for the women who go to them. This has become a hidden health crisis in our nation that must be addressed by every state before more women suffer and die.”
Operation Rescue documented another medical emergency at the Walnut Creek Planned Parenthood that took place on October 6, 2017. In that instance an ambulance was also called to the abortion clinic and a woman was transported to the hospital.
