Dr. Bryon Calhoun, an OB-GYN at West Virginia University, was recently interviewed by Operation Rescue about the state of health care for women who submit to abortions. He told their reporter that he sees women suffering from botched abortions on a regular basis at the emergency room in Charleston; an average of once a week.
“These people [ post-abortive women] are told to come to our hospital because the abortion clinic providers do not have hospital privileges to care for their patients, so we must treat them as emergency ‘drop-ins’,” Calhoun said. He adds,
“No other medical providers are allowed to care for patients, have no backup coverage, and then abandon them to the emergency room. … The fantasy of women’s reproductive health seems to allow these individuals who perform abortions some special dispensation to provide substandard care.”
The “fantasy” he refers to is the media-fueled notion that the Abortion Industry is committed to protecting women and their health. Like drug dealers who peddle drugs on street corners, abortionists are only interested in their clients for as long as the money is good. Once they meet the demand, collect the money, they are done with the people they claim to serve.
All across the nation, in various states, Planned Parenthood and their abortion colleagues are fighting attempts to hold them accountable to decent standards of medical care. In California, they are pressing the Legislature to make it legal for nurses to perform abortions as a strategy to improve profit margins.
It is striking that the Death Industry would be so brazen with the profound moral and health scandal of Kermit Gosnell just months old. It is a reflection, we believe, of the national atmospherics engendered by President Obama and his unwavering loyalty to the Abortion Industry. They clearly believe he is big enough to protect them.
