Abortion Leaves Woman Seriously Brain-Damaged

“Shelby” age 50, had an abortion by Dr. X. Immediately after the abortion began, she had a reaction to a drug the abortionist had given her and experienced a grossly abnormal elevation in blood pressure. The doctor dismissed the reaction as transient and left after completing the procedure. Half an hour later, Shelby went into cardiopulmonary arrest. The resulting lack of oxygen left her severely and permanently brain-damaged. She now requires 24-hour care and lives in a nursing home.”

Planned Parenthood Neglect Injures Woman

“On August 30, 1990 Diona went to a Planned Parenthood facility for pre-abortion counseling and a gonorrhea culture. The abortionist proceeded with the abortion prior to obtaining the results of the culture. On September 2 and 3rd, Diana called Planned Parenthood to complain of cramps and fever, but was unable to reach anyone. On September 4 they returned her call, and told her that since her temperature was only 99.5, she should keep taking her Tylenol. Diona’s symptoms worsened, and on September 11 she was admitted to a local hospital with “bilateral tubo-ovarian abscesses.” She underwent laparoscopicy, pelvic laparotomy, removal of lesions, drainage of abscesses, and a D&C. The results of the gonorrhea culture were reported to Planned Parenthood staff on September 4, but they did not attempt to advise Diona of this until September 11, after she was already hospitalized.”

This woman was lucky to have survived. Here are some stories from women who are not as lucky.

Abortionist Delays Calling Ambulance For Injured Woman Until Protesters Leave

“On August 19, 1988 Tamera had an abortion by Dr. X in a Fargo, North Dakota, abortion clinic. Afterward, she bled profusely, suffered low blood pressure, and drifted in and out of consciousness. The clinic staff instructed her to squeeze her legs together and attempt to clench her vagina. When they tried to move her, she had a gush of blood and her friend demanded that she be taken to the hospital. The abortionist refused, and instead performed at least one D&C in an unsuccessful attempt to stop the bleeding. Her friend demanded to see Tamera and again insisted that they “do something.” Antiabortion protesters were in front of the building during this time, and Roe waited until they left to call an ambulance. At that point, 5 1/2 hours had passed since Tamera’s injury. She later recalled the emergency room personnel were shouting, “We’re losing her, we’re losing her.” She was given transfusions of several pints of blood, and was given an emergency hysterectomy to stop the bleeding.”

Woman Needs Six Hours of Surgery after Her Abortion

“Robin” age 19, had an abortion by Dr. X on February 22, 1980. As the doctor later admitted, he realized during the abortion that the fetus was closer to 16 or 17 weeks than the 11 or 12 weeks he had estimated, but he continued to employ an early abortion technique on this advanced pregnancy. Robin pleaded for him to stop due to the pain, but he told her that he was saving her money by not giving her anesthetic and to “hold on an little longer.” He persisted for over an hour, perforating her uterus and bladder and lacerating her cervix. Although Robin went into shock, there was a delay of over an hour before she was finally taken to the hospital. Even then, the clinic sent her in a taxi rather than an ambulance. In the emergency room, doctors found the abdomen full of blood. Robin required 16 units of blood, and six hours in surgery to repair her uterus and bladder. She also needed a hysterectomy. She spent four days in the intensive care unit, nearly died and was hospitalized for about a month.

Since her release from the hospital, Robin has suffered thrombophelbitis, urinary tract infections, pain and swelling in her leg, migraines and painful and irregular periods. Medical records show that the pregnancy was between 19 and 21 weeks.

Robin was fortunate to have survived. Read the stories of some women who were not as fortunate.

Doctor Botches Abortion, leaves woman “Expelling Fetal Tissue”

“Linda” had an abortion performed by Dr. X on April 5, 1986. When she was examined by the abortionist prior to the procedure, he and several others were talking back and forth, unsure of the age of the fetus. Finally, one of them said “we’ll say 13 weeks,” and the others all agreed. The doctor then began performing a suction abortion and a few minutes later removed the suction cannula from the patient and left the room. Linda was led into a waiting room and then discharged. On April 8 she suffered from a bloated and sore abdomen, with pain so severe that she became alarmed and called her sister. After she began to hemorrhage, discharging large clots of blood and tissue, her sister called an ambulance. When paramedics arrived, they found Linda bleeding profusely in severe pain, and discharging fetal tissue. They took her to a local hospital where a D & C was performed to remove the retained tissue. When Linda called the clinic to inform then of the emergency, an employee reponded “Well, you wanted to kill the baby and it’s dead now, so what’s the problem?”

Woman Suffers Horrible Complications after Her Abortion

Terry” had an abortion by Dr. X on August 31, 1984. She went to an emergency room on September 3 after she started passing blood clots the size of golf balls. She told the staff about her abortion, and they called the abortionist and were told he was not available. The abortion clinic staff said that Terry should drive to another hospital to be seen by one of the abortionist’s friends. However, the emergency room staff called in their own doctor who found that Terry had tissue coming out of her uterus and was still passing large clots. After Terry continued to have problems, the doctor admitted her to the hospital and found that she had pus up to her diaphragm, was expelling tissue from her vagina, and had a temperature of 106.

Abortionist Severs Woman’s Small Intestine

On February 23, 1979, “Sharon” had an abortion performed by Dr. X. During the procedure, he noticed that the suction tube was clogged, and discovered that he had punctured Sharon’s uterus and severed her small intestine. She ended up losing all but five-and-a-half inches of her small intestine, both Fallopian tubes, her appendix, and some of her large intestine. Only 28 years old, Sharon required a permanent catheter tube implanted to allow nutrients to be taken into her bloodstream, a procedure that takes up to 14 hours daily, and that she will most likely require for the rest of her life. She also suffered bloating, dizzy spells, hair loss, and her weight fell below 100 pounds. The doctor’s defense was that this is just “one of the complications of this procedure that happens from time to time.”
