On September 30, 2014, Houston Coalition for Life posted images of an ambulance outside the Houston Planned Parenthood abortion clinic mega center which had to wait as their gate slowly opened. The ambulance arrived with sirens and lights.
Pro-lifers observed that the employees of the abortion facility did not open the gate for the emergency vehicle until it arrived.
Is that putting women’s lives at risk?
Is that “Care No Matter What?”
On their social media page, Houston Coalition for Life writes, “Ambulance after abortion: employees of the abortion facility lining up to prevent line of sight. Note that the gate must be slowly re-opened to allow to ambulance out, the EMS vehicle turns off flashing lights as it exits, to avoid attention being drawn to the scene of the emergency. (hint: it’s the largest abortion facility in the country.)”
According to the group, the ambulance arrived with lights flashing, employees standing, and the gate was closed.
Then employees of the abortion facility lined up to prevent sight of the patient, who was carried out on a stretcher, under a white cloth.
As they watched it unfold – they wondered if this is an emergency and if the EMS vehicle needs to leave, why is the gate still closed?
Pro-lifers outside the Planned Parenthood noted that as the patient is loaded and the ambulance heads out the gate slowly opens… isn’t this an emergency?
They watched as the gate opened ever so slowly… remember, seconds count here…
One more observation was mentioned regarding the lights and sirens of the emergency vehicle, “as EMS vehicle #17 leaves, note that the lights are no longer flashing as in previous pictures. This is to keep attention from being drawn to the scene of the emergency,” the group wrote.
Was this an emergency? Why did the ambulance arrive with sirens – was slowed down by the unopened gate – slowed down again by the closed gate – and then left with no sirens or lights?
It is possible that first responders decided that this was not an emergency and therefore did not use their lights or sirens. But, we may never know those answers.
What we do know is that emergencies after abortions are not new, in fact, women are often injured and even killed from legal abortion. Having an abortion inside a Planned Parenthood mega center will not insulate women from the many complications that arise from killing their child. Something – most likely- Planed Parenthood won’t tell them.
