Call for Action Follows Woman’s Death After Botched Late-Term Abortion

In a tragic case out of Cleveland, OH, 22-year-old LaKisha Wilson has died following a late-term abortion. According to a statement released by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office, Wilson was transported from the Preterm abortion facility to University Hospital Case Medical Center on Friday, March 21, 2014. 911 records obtained by Operation Rescue indicate that Wilson was not breathing. The cause of death has not yet been determined, pending autopsy results.

Pro-life leaders have responded by calling for an emergency suspension of Preterm’s abortion facility license. A press conference will be held on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 11:00am outside the Preterm abortion facility.

“My heart is very heavy in light of this recent senseless death of yet another African American woman and her unborn child,” stated Henry Flowers, Urban Outreach Director with Protecting Black Life. “As abortion remains the #1 killer of African Americans, there is still an urgent need for our communities, and the nation at large, to be aware of abortion’s disproportionate impact on Black Americans and to become bothered enough to begin doing something about it. When will we say, ‘enough is enough’?”

As evidenced in the 2013 trial of Kermit Gosnell, the urban community continues to be victimized by the abortion industry. Research has shown that abortion giant, Planned Parenthood, has located 79% of its surgical abortion facilities within walking distance of African American and/or Hispanic neighborhoods. This intentional targeting of minorities is a major contributing factor to why abortion is the leading cause of death of African Americans.
