WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2012 /Standard Newswire/ -- Operation Rescue has released a video that contrasts statements made by Pres. Barack Obama in support of tax-funding of Planned Parenthood with actual images and 911 audio from 14 documented medical emergencies -- including one avoidable patient death -- that have taken place at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics since January, 2011.
"This powerful video shows how Obama's policy of funding Planned Parenthood with public tax dollars is actually working to harm women," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. "Obama continues to promote and support Planned Parenthood on the campaign trail and during the Presidential Debates. We want to help the public understand the true nature of what that support is inflicting on women across the country."
Gov. Mitt Romney, who is running against Obama for the Office of the Presidency, has vowed to halt tax subsidies to Planned Parenthood.
The video includes the following medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics that have been carefully documented by Operation Rescue with the help of vigilant pro-life activists from coast to coast over the past 22 months.

"There can be no doubt that Planned Parenthood, the largest supplier of abortions in the nation, presents a danger to women everywhere. Obama's shameful support of this abortion cartel is placing the lives of women at risk of bodily injury and death," said Newman. "We cannot afford four more years of carnage against women. On November 6, we urge Americans to vote to protect the health and safety of women and their pre-born babies by voting Obama out of office."
Among the 14 incidents in the video, documented abortion complications include hemorrhaging, uterine perforations, and incomplete abortions. The incidents presented represent only a fraction of abortion complications that occur at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, most of which occur in secrecy.
