A young Illinois teenager was reportedly injured during a second-trimester abortion and had to be taken to hospital.
On April 28, a woman identified only as Beth called 911 for an ambulance at the Hope Clinic for Women, an abortion clinic in Granite City, Illinois, across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Missouri. When a 911 caller asked for details about the medical emergency, she learned that the afflicted person was a 13-year-old girl with a perforated uterus.
rescue operationAnti-abortion groups accessed recordings of 911 calls through the Effingham County Public Records Request.
Although the call was short, Operation Rescue was grateful to have access to the recording since Hope Clinic called RuralMed EMS, a private ambulance company. rescue operation claims that in the past some 911 callers have tried to circumvent the public records system to limit public knowledge of abortion-related medical emergencies.
According to Operation Rescue, Pro-Life activists at the Hope Clinic site that day saw ambulances arrive and transport patients. The photo that appeared in the rumble video was allegedly taken by an Operation Rescue representative at the facility that day.
On the phone, Beth of Hope Clinic pointed to Burns Jewish Hospital and requested that the patient be transferred to Burns. Live Action News, a pro-life news agency, reported that Burns Jewish Hospital is 20 minutes from the Hope Clinic and that “there is a hospital within walking distance of the facility.” The paper speculates that Beth may have designated the girl to go to Barnes Jewish instead of a nearby hospital because Barnes Jewish is a Level 1 trauma center that can “treat more serious injuries.” bottom.

Under certain conditions, Missouri.
“We don’t know if the abortionist who performed the botched abortion reported the child rape,” Newman said. “My staff are investigating the matter and have filed a formal complaint against this middle school girl who was already sexually assaulted and then assaulted again by bloodthirsty abortionists at this hopelessly dangerous facility. I am filing a complaint.”
Although Newman’s words describing the facility are powerful, he aptly points out that the name “Hope Clinic” appears to be plainly misleading. The facility was set up to provide so-called “compassionate abortion care”, where women and girls can have abortions until their fetuses are 27 weeks and 6 days old.
