Posted on 06/01/2014 12:53:33 AM PDT by kathsua
The Cuyahoga Medical Examiners Office ruled today that a young woman died from complications due to a legal abortion she obtained at a Cleveland abortion clinic earlier this year.
Wilson, 22, died as the result of a heart attack suffered immediately after she underwent a therapeutic abortion. The full autopsy report is not yet available, according to the statement.
This confirms the information released to LifeNews by Operation Rescue, which has released two videos featuring 911 call recordings showing a pattern of botched abortions at Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, where Lakisha Wilson suffered a fatal abortion.
After we obtained 911 records that stated a patient was not breathing at all, along with the notation that there was a patient death, we were sure that Wilson died from abortion complications. That has now been confirmed by the Medical Examiners office, said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. If Lakisha Wilson had not gone to Preterm, she would be alive today. We renew our call for the closure of that abortion clinic in order to protect other women from suffering Lakishas tragic fate.
Wilsons death was first discovered by the group through an open records request for 911 records after being tipped off by Pastor Dale Henkel, who photographed the ambulance at Preterm on March 21, 2014.
According to a statement released by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiners Office:
Decedent was conveyed from 12000 Shaker Blvd., in Cleveland to University Hospitals Case Medical Center and arrived on 3-21-14 where she was treated, expired and was pronounced on 3-28-14.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper has more on the findings:
Lakisha Wilson of Canal Winchester near Columbus was rushed to the hospital during the termination her pregnancy March 22 at Preterm Abortion Clinic. She died a week later of cardiopulmonary arrest immediately following elective abortion of intrauterine pregnancy, the Medical Examiners Office said.
The medical examiner designated her death as being from a Therapeutic Complication. It reflects the association of this death with a medical procedure and is not intended to address issues regarding quality of care or standards of practice.
Representatives at Preterm have not responded to phone calls.
According to information gathered by Operation Rescue from those on the scene and who have been contacted by members of the womans family, Lakisha Wilson was in the later stages of pregnancy, and because of that was turned down by abortion clinics in Columbus and Akron.
LakishaWilsonShe was said to have been brain dead at the time she arrived at the hospital, but was kept on life support for several days so that her organs could be harvested.
We wish to express our deepest sympathies to Lakishas family for their devastating loss, said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. We have filed complaints with the Ohio Medical Board and with the Ohio Department of Health. We call on the ODH to immediately suspend Preterms clinic license pending a full investigation into Lakishas death.
Records, which were obtained through a public records request, show that at 10:59 a.m. on Friday, March 21, 2014, an employee of Preterm dialed 911 and reported to a dispatcher there was a 22-year-old female patient at the clinic who was not breathing at all.
The caller also indicated that the patient was unconscious and receiving CPR at the time of the call, but efforts to restart respiration had been unsuccessful.
The lack of a sense of urgency really struck me as I was listening to the 911 recording, said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. A woman was dying or dead, and there just seemed to be no real hurry to respond to the dispatcher.
The CAD transcript, which lists event chronology for 911 emergencies, showed that units were dispatched just moments after the 911 call began and that it took paramedics three minutes to arrive at the clinic at 11:02 a.m. when they began emergency measures.
At 11:21, paramedics transmitted information about the patients condition to the University Hospital Case Medical Center and began to transport her to the emergency room, arriving at 11:26 a.m. The ambulance listed its status as cleared at 11:27 a.m.
At no time during the 28 minutes that emergency responders were in contact with the patient was there any indication that the patient ever resumed respiration.
The CAD Transcript contained the 9-E-1, the most serious of life-threatening medical emergencies, along with the notations Cardiac or Respiratory Arrest/Death and Not breathing at all.
This death is the fault of pro-aborts who want to keep abortion clinics unregulated and who show no concern these facilities and doctors give subpar medical treatment to women they allegedly support.
Looks like Margaret Sanger got a twofer in this deal. RIP to mother and child.
How could she suffer a heart attack?
I’ll bet this story doesn’t make the pages of our local lefty-Obama-endorsing Pig Squealer (Plain Dealer).
But if you as much as step on a kitten’s paw, it’ll be front page, above the fold.
>> How could she suffer a heart attack?
A broken heart?
How could she suffer a heart attack?
I’m not a MD , no answer for that ... but what I do know is that these clinics are totally unprepared for even the most common complications ,, usually uncontrolled bleeding or something anesthesia related... they wait too long to call an ambulance in most cases and they almost never assist in recovery ,, don’t even make themselves available to ER/Trauma personnel for answering questions that could save minutes/lives .. They abandon their patients.
It doesn’t say she did. Cardiopulmonary arrest is the catch all phrase for “ heart and lungs stopped. Not the same as Myocardial Infarction. She could have died from hemorrhage , PE, or sepsis, all common post op causes of death or arrhythmia or any number of other causes.
Addendum. The article is somewhat confusing as to timing. If she died during the procedure or immediate post op period I’d say bleeding or anesthetic complication climbs to the top of the list for immediate cause of death, although an amniotic embolism and arrhythmia are lower.
Cleveland, Ohio Bump
What on God's green earth is a "therapeutic abortion"?
Did they light some scented candles to cover the smell of carnage? Did they play some waterfall sound track to mask the sounds of carnage? Did they pat her on the hand and say, "There, there, it's all for the best"?
How could she suffer a heart attack?
From bleeding to death, most likely.
The carnage continues in America while we just all go on, living our fabulous lives.
“Looks like Margaret Sanger got a twofer in this deal. RIP to mother and child.”
Yes, the butcher who did this gets a Planned Parenthood award (though it is bad for business - she might have come back a few more times). No RIP for the “mother”...
There’s that word “botched” again. They got two dead bodies for the price of one. What more do they want?
> How could she suffer a heart attack?
Blood clots from other surgery or trauma.
Excuse me, maybe I'm a little obtuse and uninformed, but just exactly is a 'therapeutic' abortion? What is 'therapeutic' about murdering an unborn baby?
That caught my eye too. Seems like a way to make murder less harsh for the readers.
therapeutic means ... medically unnecessary , voluntary
