Cleveland abortionist botches two second-trimester abortions in five weeks

A woman who was over five months pregnant was recently rushed to the hospital after suffering a botched abortion. After receiving an abortion at the Abortion Access Center for Women’s Health in Cleveland, Ohio, run by Dr. Martin Ruddock, the woman suffered heavy bleeding and lacerations. Operation Rescue was able to get a copy of the 911 call:

Sadly, this wasn’t Dr. Ruddock’s first botched abortion. Five weeks earlier, on September 29, he botched another second-trimester abortion. In that instance, Dr. Ruddock snapped at the 911 dispatcher as she asked about the patient’s condition, saying, “I’m a surgeon.”

Sadly, these are not the only instances of botched abortion for Dr. Ruddock. There have been at least two others, in 2003 and 2004, that are known. What’s scary is that he’s even still able to practice medicine, considering that women are quite obviously at risk for injury under his “care.”

    Obviously “Doctor” Ruddock is not associated with Planned Parenthood and thus is actually a PP competitor. We can expect both PP and Ruddock’s Access Center for Women’s Health to continue claiming abortions to be perfectly safe for the pregnant women coming in to have their unborn babies killed — and perfectly unsafe for the unborn baby.

    Here in Cleveland, a lot of the Planned Parenthoods don’t provide abortions, but they direct you to these other clinics. So, they are “associated” in the loose sense that they get a lot of their business from PP’s recommendations.

  • this will continue to happen as long as obama is president and democrats in state legislatures refuse to pass regulations requiring abortion facilities to have the same safety regulations as hospitals or REAL outpatient surgery centers. And to add to this comment I had first posted on the facebook link…how could someone feel their baby kicking and moving and still end that baby’s life? :( Pray for this woman…if she survives and regrets the Abortion…may God Forgive her

    the whole “safe” argument is total hogwash! i get so tired of hearing it! i am an ex-OB/Gyn nurse & remember all too well the young girls who would be admitted to our floor in the middle of the night after botched abortions earlier in the day (i worked 12 hour night shifts on the weekends). i also peacefully protested at this abortion clinic & saw a lot of unsavory behavior out of the staff that worked at this so-called “safe clinic”. if in doubt, read “Lime 5” by Mark Crutcher about all the TRUE things that go on behind the doors of America’s abortion clinics! it’s a tough read but well worth your time….
