This makes you wonder what's really going on in the Women's Med Center abortion clinics:
(LifeNews.com) New information coming to light only today shows a woman was [apparently] rushed to the hospital in Dayton, Ohio following a botched late-term abortion that took place at the Women’s Med Center abortion clinic in Dayton.
Martin Haskell, who is credit with making the partial-birth abortion procedure a household name, runs the abortion facility that injured the woman.

This is certainly a disturbing trend. Yet another Women's Med Center abortion clinic was forced to call paramedics to rush a woman to the hospital after a botched abortion. This incident occurred at the abortion clinic in Kettering, a suburb of Dayton, Ohio.
You can listen to a recording of the 911 call below.

Here are the latest statistics about abortion in Ohio from Abort73. They come from the Alan Guttmacher Institute and the Centers for Disease Control. Of the states which report data to the CDC, Ohio has the eighth highest abortion rate.
Cincinnati, Ohio, — A complaint has been filed with the State Medical Board of Ohio against late-term abortionist Martin Haskell alleging violations of the standards of patient care after an abortion patient was hospitalized last month. The complaint asks that the Board conduct a thorough review and take whatever steps are necessary to protect the public.
A recording of the 911 call placed personally by Haskell on March 28, 2012, revealed that a woman was unconscious and suffering seizures that could not be controlled while coming out of anesthesia after an abortion. The woman was transported to Bethesda Hospital, where Haskell has no admitting privileges nor does he have an agreement for a physician to care for his abortion complications.
The Ohio Department of Health was notified and immediately sent out a team of surveyors who, according to witnesses, were denied access to Haskell’s clinic until he was prepared to allow them in.

Alarmingly, another medical emergency has occurred at a Women's Med Center abortion clinic. The chain of abortion facilities run by Martin Haskell has locations in Cincinnati, Dayton and Indianapolis, with this particular event occurring in Sharonville, a suburb of Cincinnati earlier this week. The young woman involved was about 19 or 20 according to the 911 call placed by Haskell while she was seizing uncontrollably. You can listen to the call here. The most disturbing part comes when Haskell starts laughing at the 911 dispatcher when she offers to give life-saving instructions to him. You might assume that a man that has been making a fortune for years taking life after life would already know the proper procedures to take in the rare instance that he decides to try to save a life, but apparently that wasn’t the case.
In the call we hear Haskell say the woman was in status epilepticus and that they had been "pushing IV Valium" and the seizures would not stop. This is not the recommended method of intervention for status epilepticus, it hasn't been since the 70's. Normally these patients are first treated with lorazepam, the most effective treatment. Valium (diazepam) is only used when lorazepam is not on hand (keep in mind that this facility does not meet the requirements for proper emergency treatment required by the state) or when intravenous administration is not possible, and we know from Haskell's statement that it was possible. It could of course also be the case that Haskell is simply incompetent and didn’t know what to do. Treating the young woman in this way is quite possibly what caused her to require tracheal intubation (which observers reported was being used) as the likelihood of this being needed is greatly increased by what Haskell did.
Assuming that the woman was not actively seizing when being taken out of the abortion center the fact that she was intubated indicates that she may have been under general anesthesia, sometimes induced using propofol or a similar drug. According to an article by Dr. Wijdicks of the Mayo Clinic, while effective in cases of myoclonus status epilepticus, when propofol is used, even in smaller doses, the patient almost never survives. Regardless of the possible usage of propofol however, there is at least a 1 in 5 chance that the woman did not survive or will die within the next month. Needless to say, we must also remember that her baby was presumably killed by Haskell or one of his associates just prior to this incident. It is estimated that about 50 children are killed every week at the Women’s Med Center location in Sharonville alone.
This event is eerily similar to another medical crisis that transpired at Haskell’s Dayton abortion clinic which you can read about here. There have been many questions about the safety of Haskell’s abortion business in Sharonville from local physicians and government officials. Ohio’s health department however, is ignoring these concerns.

(LifeNews.com) A woman was rushed to a local hospital in the Cincinnati suburb of Sharonville, Ohio after appearing to have suffered from a botched abortion at the facility run by the abortion practitioner credited with promoting partial-birth abortions.
Dr. Steven Brinn, a pediatrician whose offices are next door to the Women’s Med Center abortion facility, commented on the incident.
“Today, March 28, paramedics with ambulance and police were called to Haskell’s Abortion Clinic in Sharonville and this was witnessed by many,” Brinn said. “”A young woman was seen being carried out on a stretcher by paramedics who were bagging the woman (giving life support). It is assumed that the woman suffered some kind of complication in the clinic while she was there for treatment. Police were also at the scene and closed down the clinic for a time.”

This story is covered on the Christian Science Monitor website, a newspaper with international coverage, but none of the local Cincinnati media outlets seem to think it's worth reporting on. If you think it's important for people to know about significant events like this, and for the media to stop ignoring it so they don't have to deal with a "controversial" issue you might want to give them a call and let them know.

Thursday of this week, joint resolutions were filed in the Ohio legislature, demanding that President Obama reverse a Health and Human Services rule that requires employers to pay for drugs that can cause abortions. "Requiring religious-based organizations to cover such drugs is a blatant violation of the conscience rights of pro-life organizations and individuals. If an employer has a conscience objection to providing such coverage, this new federal mandate will force them to comply regardless," said Ohio Right to Life President Mike Gonidakis. "This completely contradicts the rights of religious liberty afforded to all Americans."
The rule requires health plans to cover all FDA-approved forms of contraception which include both Plan B and Ella, "emergency contraception" more commonly known as the morning-after pill. There is significant evidence that these drugs can act as abortifacients by preventing a human embryo from implanting in the womb. Ella in particular is similar to the chemical composition of the abortion drug RU-486.
"This federal requirement completely disregards the religious freedoms of faith-based institutions and crosses the boundary between church and state," said Representative Stautberg. "The federal government should not force employers to offer a product that violates their conscience or force religious leaders to act against their own teachings. Today we are sending a message to President Obama and Washington that here in the state of Ohio, we believe that religious freedom is worth defending."
"This mandate from the Obama administration blatantly disregards the personal religious beliefs of many employers," said Senator Peggy Lehner. "We wish to express the Ohio Senate's objection to this blatant overreach."
"Protecting human life is at the top of my personal duty list. Forcing taxpayer money and religious institutions to comply with a misguided policy from the President is something that must be corrected," said Senator Dave Burke.
(OneNewsNow) Personhood Ohio is on track to launch a drive to put a personhood amendment on next year's ballot.
The proposed wording of the amendment would change the Ohio Constitution to define a person as "every human being at every stage of biological development, including fertilization"[...]
Campaign officials have submitted the first round of signatures to Attorney General Mike DeWine, who has said he will certify it. "By law, he has to certify it within a couple of weeks," reports Dr. Michael Johnston, who is heading up the campaign. "So by the beginning of 2012, we'll be ready for our statewide campaign to gather the 380,000 signatures necessary to put the Ohio personhood amendment on the ballot."
