Father frustrated as daughter suffers botched abortion
Editor's note: This publication usually focuses on news of babies and their
mothers who are saved from abortion every week in Bakersfield. However, the
events of last week make it necessary for us to take a different approach
with this issue, telling the story of a woman who was seriously injured by
"Your daughter 'Marilyn' asked me to watch the children this morning, while
she went downtown," the young woman cautiously told "Ronald." "She went to
Family Planning Associates."
"There were complications."
Ronald dropped the phone and rushed out the door. "How can this be?" he asked himself.
Ronald encountered Terri* on the sidewalk outside the abortion chamber. "I'm looking for my daughter," he said. "I didn't even know she was pregnant, and I just found out she had complications."
Bleeding uncontrollably, "Marilyn" was transported to Kern Medical Center by Hall Ambulance.
Earlier in the day, Terri and the rest of the LifeSavers Ministries pregnancy evangelism team had watched as a young woman was taken away from the killing center by ambulance. Terri recalled something unusual about the appearance of the woman.
When Ronald realized that his daughter Marilyn fit the description of the woman who had been taken
to the hospital, he went into the abortion center to find out what happened to Marilyn.
The staff of the FPA abortion chamber refused to provide any information to Ronald, claiming that no woman using either Marilyn's married name or maiden name had been in their facility that day. The staff member explained that they often don't know the real names of their victims.
Incredulous, Ronald asked "So they can just come in here with any fictitious name?"
"She could have used 'Roy Rogers' for all I know!" Ronald left the abortion chamber, annoyed by the deception which permeates the entire operation. He came across the street to see if he could find the truth at the LifeHouse pregnancy help center.
"I'm a Christian, and I'm against abortion," Ronald told Tim*. He went on to explain that Marilyn and her husband were baptized recently, and that he was hoping that with the Lord's help they were finally getting their lives back together. But in the last few weeks, he had been discouraged because they had not been coming to church.
When Tim explained that he had seen the ambulance go to Kern Medical Center, Ronald called KMC to check on her condition. KMC refused to provide any information to Ronald, apparently because his daughter had been checked in under the fake name she gave to the killing center.
[I wonder whose insurance will pay for the ambulance and hospital bill, since they apparently didn't know who she really was. -Ed.]
Ronald later found out that laser surgery was performed on Marilyn at KMC to control the bleeding. Her cervix had apparently been lacerated by the abortion tools, or by the bones of her dismembered three-month-old baby being pulled out of her womb.
By the grace of God, Marilyn was able to go home that night, although the hospital had recommended that she stay. "God is trying to get your attention," Ronald told her.
After reviewing Marilyn's experience, a family friend (who has provided medical assistance for Marilyn during her pregnancies) concluded "she almost bled to death."
The name of the abortionist who injured Marilyn and killed her child is not known. Because of the fact that his identity has not been revealed,
the number of other women who have been injured or killed by this abortionist is also unknown.
This may be one of the reasons he has tried to remain anonymous, because most abortionists have been sued by many families due to botched abortions.
On Monday morning, February 17, the FPA abortion staff apparently held a special meeting with abortionist Kenneth Wright, who is one of the owners of the bloody Family Planning Associates empire. Wright had not been seen in Bakersfield for about two months. Terri speculated that the staff is meeting together to determine how to cover up the facts relating to the botched abortion.
Later in the morning, Marilyn returned to the abortion center with the friend who had been watching Marilyn's children last Tuesday during the abortion. "I had an abortion here last year," the friend told Terri. "They messed up on me too."
- You have the right to "choose."
- You have no right to sue.
- your local abortionist
Terri encouraged Marilyn's friend to pursue a
lawsuit against FPA.
"I can't," she replied,
"I signed away my right to sue them
when I went in for
women to come to
them by saying, "you
have the right to choose." But after the abortion,
somehow the rights of the woman are no longer
important: "you have no right to sue."

FPA abortion staff: Pleased to maim women?
Adding insult to injury
Laughing and joking with each other, the FPA abortion chamber staff seemed
to be "enjoying the show" as an ambulance transported a woman who had been
critically wounded by abortion, showing no concern for the woman's desperate
condition. Even pro-lifers who have been ministering outside this killing
center for many years were shocked by their cavalier attitude.
Later, the father of the young woman who had been injured was treated insensitively by other FPA staff members.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Pray that the women you encounter today will be open to receive God's gift of life.
Dear Lord, please use this botched abortion to wake up the unknown abortionist. Help him to recognize the error of his ways, and to turn to You.
Soften "Marilyn's" heart. Open her eyes to see that she was deceived by the devil, and use her pain to help her surrender to You.
