Abortion Reportedly Kills Woman in New York at A1 Medicine Abortion Center
Life News ^ | 1/26/10 | Steven Ertelt

New York, NY (LifeNews.com) -- A New York woman has apparently died as a result of a failed abortion done at the A-1 Women's Care abortion center located in the Jackson Heights section of Queens. Reports indicate emergency officials responded to an emergency call from the A1 Medicine facility at 95-45 Roosevelt on Monday afternoon.

WPIX-TV indicates a woman in her 30s was reportedly undergoing heavy bleeding and was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital Center where she was later pronounced dead.

The television station indicates an investigation into the failed abortion is ongoing and that one question officials are examining is whether the center was licensed to do abortions.

Another local media outlet, 1010 WINS, indicated the abortion practitioner severed an artery during the abortion procedure.

The A-1 Women's Care abortion business does abortions but advertises gynecology and plastic surgery on the sign located outside the building.

No one from the abortion business answered the phone when LifeNews.com contacted it for information or a quote about this story.

The New York state department of health lists A1 Medicine as a facility for plastic surgery accredited by The Joint Commission on July 13, 2009.

Other media reports indicate the second-floor office specializes in plastic surgery, laser wrinkle surgery, skin depigmentation and liposuction but does abortions as well.

Local news agencies indicated the center was still taking appointments for abortions.

This failed abortion comes after a California medical board said an abortion practitioner who killed a woman last year in a botched abortion must stop doing them. However, to the chagrin of pro-life advocates, a judge did not revoke the medical license of Andrew Rutland, as happened years ago before reinstating it.

Rutland surrendered his license in October 2002 after a two-year state investigation that resulted in accusations of negligence, misconduct and incompetence in his treatment of 20 pregnant women, newborns and gynecological patients

Rutland faced a Thursday hearing in front of the California Medical Board at a hearing in San Diego after documents showed Rutland killed a woman during an abortion by administering anesthesia to her and not knowing the proper dosage.

A judge ordered Rutland to stop doing abortions until a more thorough hearing on the case could be held.

Why would anyone in their right mind go in there. They can’t even spell “gynecologic” correctly.

She set out to murder her baby and ended up dead herself, a direct consequence of her evil intent.

“abortion practitioner”!?!?!?!

The word is “abortionist”.

And “A1 Medicine and Abortion Center”? I think those steak sauce people’s attorneys are going to be busy today.

If the baby died, is it really a “failed” abortion? Seems like the abortion was too succesful, and killed one too many people.

Sounds like a classy place. Why not re-fi's, landscaping, and brake jobs too?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

48,589,993

Total Abortions since 1973

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why the drop after 1960? (in deaths of women from illegal abortions)

The reasons were new and better antibiotics, better surgery and the establishment of intensive care units in hospitals. This was in the face of a rising population. Between 1967 and 1970 sixteen states legalized abortion. In most it was limited, only for rape, incest and severe fetal handicap (life of mother was legal in all states). There were two big exceptions — California in 1967, and New York in 1970 allowed abortion on demand. Now look at the chart carefully.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Abortion Statistics - Decision to Have an Abortion (U.S.)

· 25.5% of women deciding to have an abortion want to postpone childbearing

· 21.3% of women cannot afford a baby

· 14.1% of women have a relationship issue or their partner does not want a child

· 12.2% of women are too young (their parents or others object to the pregnancy)

· 10.8% of women feel a child will disrupt their education or career

· 7.9% of women want no (more) children

· 3.3% of women have an abortion due to a risk to fetal health

2.8% of women have an abortion due to a risk to maternal health

----------------------------------------------------------------------

So how many women’s lives have been saved by abortion?

Less than 3% of abortions since 1972 were reported to be “due to a risk to maternal health.” A reasonable person would recognize that not all of those cases represent a lethal risk. But let’s say they did. That means that nearly 45 million fetuses were butchered to save the lives of about 1.3 million women. Or put another way; 35 babies are killed to save each woman.

Abortion was legal in all 50 states prior to Roe v. Wade in cases of danger to the life of the woman.

You are welcome. Eventually, through persistence, the truth will sweep away all but the most fringe support for abortion.

She made her choice......(to stop a human heart), - then God made HIS choice.

He severed more than an artery to reach it.

That's pretty incompetent.

A “failed” abortion is one that the baby lives through. This one killed both of them, so it did not “fail”.

My then-teenaged daugther said several years ago, “Mom, there is no such thing as a safe abortion. Someone always dies.”

Abortion kills millions of women every year. This one just happened to be a few years older than most.

Well, I pity her. There's no more catastrophic thing a person can do, than to die while in the midst of committing a mortal sin.

This is not just a dreadful consequence for a lifetime, but horror for eternity.

I can only hope that in the last moments, her blindness fell away and she saw with clarity that she had planned the death of her innocent child, and would die in consequence; I hope he was moved to repentance. I hope she asked for mercy from the only One who could save her from the Pit.

Some good news, I recently found out that the abortion mill closed back in March. The bad news, the butcher had no malpractice insurance so the family can not sue him.

actually the family can sue a doctor who doesn’t have medical insurance. Most of them are quite rich. the bad news is often they put it in places hard to find, so no lawyer will spend time and energy suing since even if they win, they may never collect the money.
