Recently Obtained 911 Records Reveal Teen Suffered Serious 33-Week Abortion Complication at Hern's Clinic

BOULDER, Colo., April 5, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Late yesterday, Operation Rescue obtained 911 records that revealed shocking details of a medical emergency that took place on April 2, 2019, at Warren Hern's notorious Boulder Abortion Clinic.
According to the records, a doctor at the Boulder Abortion Clinic bypassed the 911 exchange and directly called American Medical Response (AMR) requesting an urgent response for an 18-year old female who was 33 weeks pregnant.
Use of the 911 system is known to be the quickest way to obtain emergency help. Direct calls to private ambulance companies delays response times, however, those calls are not subject to public records laws.
AMR contacted the 911 dispatch to inform them that they had sent an ambulance to the scene. The Fire Department then dispatched a Fire Unit in support. The teen was reported to have high blood pressure and was suffering from a condition called "pre-eclampsia."
According to the Mayo Clinic's website, pre-eclampsia is "a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to another organ system, most often the liver and kidneys." If untreated, it can result in a potentially life-threatening condition that results in seizures.
The ambulance and fire unit responded with lights and sirens due to the urgency of the emergency. The teen was transported - again with lights and sirens - to nearby Boulder Community Hospital.
Hern's website indicates that abortions done after 26 weeks gestation take four days. "At this point, termination of pregnancy is considered a far more dangerous procedure and carries with it serious risks of complication," Hern's website explains.
"Abortions done this late on teens tend to be for reasons other than fetal anomaly. We have evidence that teens seek late-term abortions because of denial, fear of others finding out, or even not wanting to miss out on a special event*," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "Polls** show that 75% of all Americans oppose abortions after the first trimester - and probably more if they understood we were talking about an abortion at 33 weeks of pregnancy."
The first three days involves ending the life of the baby with a toxic injection, followed by several rounds of dilators to widen the cervix in preparation for delivery. Labor is induced and the baby is dismembered and removed, or may be born intact.
It is believed that the teen who suffered the emergency on April 2 experienced the onset of pre-eclampsia somewhere near the beginning of her abortion process. If her pre-eclampsia was serious enough, it may have required an emergency C-Section delivery.
The Boulder Abortion Clinic is one of six abortion facilities in the U.S. that openly conduct abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Warren Hern, 81, has conducted abortions there continuously since 1975.
