Skip to comments.Planned Parenthood didn’t report 911 call to state because hemorrhaging “not unusual”

Planned Parenthood Keystone had a novel excuse for failing to report the ambulance transfer of a patient to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as required by law.
When DOH inspected Planned Parenthood Keystones Allentown abortion clinic on February 27, 2014, it was surprised to learn a patient had begun hemorrhaging after her abortion on March 15, 2013, and taken to the hospital by ambulance.
This was a surprising because DOH is supposed to get a report from any medical facility within 24 hours after such an occurrence, and it didnt in this case.
Planned Parenthoods excuse?
Its Patient Safety Officer and Associate Medical Director determined that this event did not constitute a serious event or incident . Abnormal bleeding after a surgical abortion is not unusual nor is it unanticipated, quoting from the report.
The chart stated the patient began with excessive bleeding with noticeable large clots after not one but two suction abortions, because no products of conception were found either time.
The bleeding continued even after the injection of a clotting medication (Methergine), which is when Planned Parenthood called 911.
If DOH didnt realize Planned Parenthoods misinterpretation of the law until this year, how many other botched abortions has Planned Parenthood Keystone covered up, not just in Allentown but others?
So Planned Parenthoods standard of care is such that large clots and hemorrhaging are expected normal outcomes of a first trimester abortion?
Oh, and DOHs deficiency report also found that Planned Parenthood violated HIPAA privacy laws by leaving patient files with names on them out in the open.
So now they're calling shredded babies "products of conception".
"I don't know what you mean by 'glory,' " Alice said.-- Lewis Carroll, Through The Looking Glass
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. "Of course you don'ttill I tell you. I meant 'there's a nice knock-down argument for you!' "
"But 'glory' doesn't mean 'a nice knock-down argument'," Alice objected.
"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to meanneither more nor less."
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be masterthat's all."
In this case, they evidently suctioned the woman twice and didn't extract any baby parts. This is strange because they're supposed to do a pelvic exam and a transvaginal ultrasound before the operation, to determine the size and gestational age of the baby.
She apparently wasn't pregnant.
Yeah. “Hemorrhaging” means a nice, normal, natural, healthy experience every woman should have.
“Yeah. Hemorrhaging means a nice, normal, natural, healthy experience every woman should have.”
No reason to get all snarky on them, just because they were a tar rough with the coat hanger. Why, for all we know, he/she/it might have just coughed while doing the ‘procedure’.
What evil! :(
That sends a chill down my spine. That will help abortionists and the progressives that worship at the alter of abortion sleep better at night. And, when they move on to killing granny, “just take a pill,” they can call granny a product of conception.
She apparently wasn’t pregnant.
This was either:
1.) a tubal where this woman is still in danger
2.) was previously pregnant and had a miscarriage but still tested positive on a test
3.) the test was in error
No matter what the reason was you can bet this facility skipped the steps you noted... Nothing but the finest care they can administer in 12 minutes or less.
