Doctor on high number of complications at Planned Parenthood

Dr. E. Hakim-Elahi, Elmhurst, New York, on the high number of Planned Parenthood’s reported complications in 2003, in a letter to Ob.Gyn News:

“If I were to receive such a report from a surgical abortion clinic, I would recommend to health authorities that the clinic be immediately shut down…. Medical abortion with the present drug regimen is unsafe….The patient will bleed for the next 4 weeks or more, and may transmit HIV (if positive) to others; become anemic; require blood transfusions or surgical abortion; or get sepsis and die. This makes no sense. . . We are allowing women to get maimed and to die. . .”
