Planned Parenthood Blocks Man Attempting To Stop Fiance From Having Abortion
Pro-life activist Michael Sweeney stood outside of the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood abortion facility on May 24, 2017, attempting to offer help to women seeking abortions as he so often does.
But what started as a routine shift at the abortion facility would soon change into an intense effort to save a baby, and later the life of its mother.
One man emerged from the towering Planned Parenthood abortion facility in the heart of Lower Manhattan to speak with Michael. He had just dropped off his fiancée for an abortion. At one point, Michael persuaded the man to go back inside Planned Parenthood to speak to his fiancée about possibly leaving without the abortion.
However, the security guard posted in the building entryway must have seen him speaking to Michael. Not only was the man was barred from seeing the woman, he was not even allowed to reenter Planned Parenthood’s waiting room. Frustrated and upset, he returned to speak further with Michael.
As they waited on the sidewalk, Michael put the man on the telephone with the Sisters of Life, who explained more about the abortion and about what options were available. After about an hour, Michael’s shift was over and he had to leave his new friend to wait for his fiancée alone.
After chatting over the phone with Sisters for Life, an ambulance then pulled up. The man that initially it could not have been for his fiancee, but the paramedics soon emerged to realize his worst fears.
She was rushed to NYU Langdon Medical Center several blocks away where she underwent emergency surgery for two and a half hours. One of the Sisters for Life visited the hospital and spoke to a nurse, who confirmed the woman was in surgery. The nun left a prayer card for the nurse to give to the patient.
While the extent of her injuries remains unknown, they were obviously severe considering the length of the surgery she endured to repair the damage from the botched abortion. When Michael followed up with his new friend to see how he and his fiancée were doing, he was told the woman was recovering slowly.
