And these are supposed to be the people who care about women, right?
Todd Starnes reports:
A Planned Parenthood doctor forced a woman to undergo an abortion without anesthesia and then botched the procedure leaving her to seek treatment at a nearby hospital, according to a lawsuit filed in a Colorado court. An emergency room doctor later discovered parts of the baby’s body had been left inside the woman’s womb.Byers had to go to the hospital where she had the baby's remaining body parts removed.
Ayanna Byer, 40, filed the lawsuit, at the prompting of the emergency room doctor who treated her two days after the botched abortion.
Byers had gone to the emergency room after Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains advised her that they did not offer follow-up care for post-abortion complications, the lawsuit alleges.
Dr. Steven Foley accused Planned Parenthood of abandoning Byer in the aftermath of the abortion.
“It is not acceptable to refer your patients to the emergency department and assume the on-call doctor will take care of any complications and assume all the risk associated with the complications,” Foley wrote in a certified review of the incident.
“No practicing physician can maintain privileges to practice and perform surgery if they do not provide specific coverage for their patients in case of a complication,” he wrote. “It is considered abandonment of your patient.”
Byer is represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom. They said she changed her mind about the abortion after Planned Parenthood could not provide her with the agreed-upon intravenous anesthesia. They allege the doctor proceeded with the abortion anyway.
“A woman’s life is more important than Planned Parenthood’s bottom line,” ADF attorney Doug Romero said. “What Planned Parenthood did to Ayanna is beyond the pale. They clearly put her through extraordinary cruelty and jeopardized her life. Their actions were intolerable.”
Please remember these people are paid with taxpayer funding.
