According to Operation Rescue: Abortionist Martin Ruddock commandeered the telephone from an employee of Abortion Access-Center for Women’s Health in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 29, 2012, and demanded an emergency transport for a 26-year old second-trimester abortion patients who suffered from a high fever and disorientation.
During the 911 recorded call, Ruddock seemed annoyed with the questions asked by a female emergency dispatcher who was inquiring if the patient was alert and breathing.
“Yes, she’s alert, breathing, and normal. Ma’am, I’m a surgeon,” Ruddock snapped.

NOT SURGEON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In addition, this is not the first time an ambulance was called for Ruddock’s abortion patients:
Partial transcript, 911 call from Center for Women’s Health, 2003:
“She’s stable, she’s fine. She’s an obese young lady, 30 years old. I did a second trimester abortion. She has a laceration on the cervix, at 3:00 on the cervix. I . . . stitched [it] and she has vaginal packing. She’s stable. I just can’t stop the bleeding. I can’t see what I’m doing and I want her out of here.” – Dr. Martin Ruddock
In December, 2004, Ruddock violated the standard of care when he hurt another patient during an abortion, according to a suit brought by the injured woman.
