The high-volume Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, the only abortion facility in Missouri, has a dismal abortion safety record. Fire Department Records and eye-witness accounts show that it uses emergency ambulance transports for patients on average of once every six weeks dating back as far as 2009.
One witness to the most recent March 11 incident told Operation Rescue that lights and sirens announced the ambulance’s arrival at Planned Parenthood around noon. Ten minutes later-paramedics emerged from the abortion facility with a woman on a gurney that was completely “cloaked” while clinic workers deployed tan tarps to prevent pro-life activists from documenting the incident. It left without running lights and sirens.
But as troubling as the flood of patient injuries have been, a lack of basic sanitation also poses a serious health issue at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood facility. In January, Operation Rescue reported on five Statement of Deficiency
Those Deficiency Reports indicated that from 2013 through 2016, the violations at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion facility have become more numerous and serious, including failure to properly clean the facility or properly sterilize surgical instruments used on patients.
“We are seeing increasingly deteriorating facility conditions, infection control practices, and patient safety issues. I can imagine no other business that would be allowed to endanger the lives and health of its customers to the extent that this Planned Parenthood abortion mill has,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.Life Site News article continues
