A patient at a Florida Planned Parenthood abortion center was rushed to a local emergency room by ambulance Monday, in what appears to be a botched abortion.

Officials could not confirm the patient had an abortion do to privacy laws, but the facility schedules and performs abortions on Mondays.

“We had a medical call and just transported someone to the hospital for evaluation,” Cherie Wilson-Watson, spokeswoman for Collier County Emergency Medical Services said.

The president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood, Char Wendel, did not comment on the patient.

“I can’t say that, all I know we are a medical facility and we respond to emergencies,” Wendel said.

Since the Naples, Fla., Planned Parenthood started doing abortions last September, this was the first time an ambulance had been called. Area hospitals were notified to accept patients in the event of a botched abortion.

According to Operation Rescue:

The news coverage shows a shift in how abortion stories are being reported.

“Not that long ago, no news outlet would have touched this story,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

The photos, submitted to the Naples newspaper by pro-lifer Fred Goduti, show an ambulance backing up to a Planned Parenthood office, with clinic personnel attempting to cover up the incident with a black tarp on two sticks.

“Planned Parenthood’s sheets of shame could not keep the truth from getting out that their organization endangers the lives of women when it takes the lives of pre-born babies,” said Newman. “For many years we have tried to get the media to cover documented cases of ambulances transporting injured women from abortion clinics. Now it is finally happening. This exposure could eventually help close this clinic, and others like it, out of concern for public safety.”

“We urge the pro-lifers who witnessed this incident to file a complaint with their state’s medical board. It is possible that an investigation could result in disciplinary action and even closure of the clinic,” said Newman. “We have seen that happen before in Florida and all over the United States.”

The Planned Parenthood clinic in Naples, Florida, has only been open since September 14, 2009.

“We were praying this would not happen,” Goduti said. “It is inevitable it would happen.”

Marie Claire magazine is scheduled to publish a story about this abortion clinic in July or August.

“It will be interesting to see if Marie Clair follows the lead of the Naples News and Fox News and reports the truth about this incident. Women have a right to know that when they walk into a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, they may leave on an ambulance gurney.”

Other Planned Parenthood organizations have been recently involved in allegations of wrongdoing, including the Iowa group that is under investigation for dispensing dangerous abortion pills over the Internet without a licensed physician present, and a Kansas group that faces 107 criminal charges related to illegal late-term abortions.
