“The predatory, profit-centered abortion industry invests in lawyers to fight health and safety standards designed to help women survive a visit. No constitutional right to harm women with substandard ‘care’ exists,” said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins.
WASHINGTON D.C. (11-14-19) – Responding to news that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee plans to examine how health and safety standards impact abortion vendors like the facility in Missouri, Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins called on the members “to tell the whole story.”
“Students for Life of America volunteers have stood outside that disreputable Missouri abortion vendor as emergency vehicles have been called day after day, as women have suffered inside. The purpose of health and safety standards is ensuring that women survive a visit to an abortion vendor, which should concern everyone. We already know that Planned Parenthood and company don’t care whether a baby survives,” said Hawkins. “We hope that the House Oversight Committee will tell the whole story of abortion in America today, if they can.”
“But let’s be clear, all we really know about abortion in the United States is what the abortion industry tells us as there is no National Abortion Reporting law. If abortion is as safe as they say, then why is there any objection to tracking the true impact of their procedures or following laws for cleanliness or emergency care plans? Real healthcare vendors are held to account. No constitutional right to harm women with substandard ‘care’ exists.”
- They have sent 80 women by ambulance to the hospital following botched abortions in the last ten years.
- 74 of these were confirmed medical emergencies.
- Ambulance drivers who come to rescue the abortion victims are instructed by Planned Parenthood to ride with lights and sirens off, so as not to alert anyone that they’re hurting people.
- They failed basic health inspections, with officials noting unsafe conditions.
- They were given reasonable changes to make in a reasonable amount of time.
- They refused to comply.
- Their abortionists refused to come forward and explain why their patients keep leaving in ambulances, and the court said, “That’s okay, it’s too hard for you to travel three miles to the courthouse.”
- We rallied in support of this facilities closure, with a huge turnout.
- The refusal to comply resulted in the revoking of their license.
