Missouri Law Would Make it a Crime to Try to Hide Botched Abortions By Doing This

A new provision in an abortion safety bill has been introduced in the Missouri State Legislature that would make it a misdemeanor crime for abortion clinic workers to interfere with medical assistance by asking ambulances to run with no lights and no sirens. It is the first of its kind in the nation.

 If passed, the new law would make such interference punishable by up to one year in jail and fines up to $2,000.

While Planned Parenthood representatives have said the new bill has nothing to do with the health and safety of women, Operation Rescue has evidence to prove that their assertion is a false one.

It is a fact that ambulances running silently take longer to reach their destinations than ambulances running with lights and sirens.

“Asking an ambulance to run in silent mode actually delays care to women when minutes can mean the difference between life and death for women experiencing abortion injuries or other complications,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, whose organization tracks and documents medical emergencies at abortion facilities nationwide.

The real reason abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood do not want ambulances running to their clinics with lights and sirens has everything to do with wanting to avoid bad publicity, according to a former Planned Parenthood abortionist.

Marc E. Heller worked for Planned Parenthood in New York until earlier this year. In a recorded interview with a student from the Cooperstown Graduate Program, conducted on November 19, 2016, Heller explained how Planned Parenthood handled ambulance calls.

“We always said to the ambulance, ‘Please come to the back entrance. Please don’t use any sirens or lights,’ because we knew that the protestors that were there every day would call the press. And there would be a press thing about ‘another botched abortion,’” Heller said.
