Abortion Clinic 911 Calls
These shocking eyewitness accounts expose the dangers of abortion not only to unborn children, but to the health and lives women as well. An antidote to the smokescreens of the liberal media, these six short clips show what really happens in and around abortion clinics.
Although the content is emotionally gut-wrenching, these videos have been used in church seminars and small groups to educate Christians on the abortion issue and to lead people toward a pro-life position.
- Baby Rowan, a prenatal 22-week-old boy, was delivered alive in an Orlando abortion clinic after a botched abortion. The actual 911 calls that resulted from this horrific event tell the story.
- Joel and Ariel, a brother and sister pro-life team from Melbourne, Florida, explain the effective work of sidewalk counselors outside of abortion clinics.
- Several more 911 emergency calls show the truth: abortion is legal but not safe!
- Finally, Pat McEwen and Lydia Baker, two Florida pro-life counselors, give their eyewitness insights into the many dangers that elective abortion poses to women.
The popularity and impact of these pro-life videos on the Internet, has led us to offer them in a single package. Please note that although the production style is not the same quality as in our other DVDs, the content is as powerful. We are pleased to offer this at a low price!

MTV Pro-life Video!
In 1995, pro-life activists Joel and Ariel Robinson appeared on MTV’s Unfiltered, a reality program featuring viewer produced news. A short clip from the Unfiltered program is followed by Joel and Ariel, now over ten years later, discussing their critique of the expression and quality of MTV’s presentation.
Abortion, legal but not safe!
This video is a composite of emergency 911 calls to Aware Woman abortion clinic in Melbourne, Florida. The video is overlaid with audio from the actual 911 calls and one message left on our answering machine by one young woman whose abortion at Aware Woman went terribly wrong. A transcript of the audio is included below.

Transcript of an Aware Woman patient
This young woman is responding to one of many letters that we sent to Aware Woman patients offering help with problems after an abortion. She did not identify herself but she is obviously hurting both physically and mentally. She is still pro-choice but wants us to “tell the girls that if this is something they want to do, then don’t go there (Aware Woman)” and “They don’t know what might happen 2 or 3 days later . . . Their baby might come out like mine did — whole. It wasn’t torn, it wasn’t anything. I was 13 weeks and I held it in my hand. It fit in the palm of my hand.”
Hi, I had a procedure done there (at Aware Woman abortion clinic) in January and I just think that while you are protesting you should just maybe tell the people what happened to me. I had an abortion in January of this year and two days later . . . they didn’t give me an abortion. A baby came out in the toilet and I held it in my hand.
I tried to get counseling and things like that. You know all the therapist does is just want to dig up things that have happened in your life. She never wants to hit the issue that you want to talk about.
Well, I’m just calling . . . I mean you can tell the girls that, you know, if this is something they want to do, then don’t go there (Aware Woman).
I tried to seek legal advice and pretty much Aware Woman has covered their butt. You know they are not going to let anything happen to them.
So, my intentions are only just to tell these girls that they might go in and pay $480.00 and their termination might be what happens. They don’t know what might happen 2 or 3 days later. Maybe they may have a chance that nothing would happen to them. Their baby might come out like mine did — whole. It wasn’t torn, it wasn’t anything. I was 13 weeks and I held it in my hand. It fit in the palm of my hand.
I have terrible, terrible problems. I bleed every day. I don’t know if I will ever have children again. I am 22 years old.
Maybe I should have listened to the lady who was trying to talk to me when I went inside. I haven’t talked to anyone else about this so it felt good just to have someone listen and not say anything.
Abortion Clinic 911 Emergency Calls (2 of 4)
Whether you are pro-life or “pro-choice,” the simple fact of the matter is that abortion is dangerous. It kills the innocent unborn child and damages the woman physically, emotionally and spiritually.
In part two of this series, we asked Pat McEwen Ph.D. some intriguing questions:
“What is pro-life sidewalk counseling?”
“Does abortion damage most women who abort?”
“What are some documented examples of the danger of abortion?”
“What about the slogan — KEEP ABORTION SAFE AND LEGAL — Is abortion ever safe?”
Dr. Pat concludes with several documented examples of complications that commonly occur during an abortion and can permanently injure a woman. The pro-abortionists have thus far shunned debates on this issue constantly because all the scientific, statistical and medical information shows that abortion is never safe.
Abortion Clinic 911 Emergency Calls (3 of 4)
In part 3 of this series, Pat McEwen Ph.D. focuses on some of the local abortion doctors who have performed abortions in Melbourne, Florida and elsewhere. Shockingly, they have left a trail of dead and injured women.
One abortion doctor went to jail for extortion, had his license to practice medicine suspended and had his chain of abortion clinics shut down for violation of health code and legal procedures. Two other local abortion providers turned on each when one tried to open a clinic that would have competed with the other. So much for keeping abortion “safe, legal and rare”!
Finally, Dr. Pat examines the link between abortion and breast cancer. She answers the propaganda campaign by Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers claiming that there is no evidence to suggest a link between abortion and cancer.
Abortion Clinic 911 Emergency Calls (4 of 4)
In part four of the series, Lydia Baker of Florida Outreach Childbirth Education talks about her work with teenagers and women in crisis pregnancies. Together with Dr. Pat McEwen, she explains the various life threatening complications that can result from an abortion.
Common complications resulting from an abortion include: infection, excessive bleeding, embolism, perforation of the uterus, anesthesia complications, convulsions, hemorrhage, cervical injury, and endotoxic shock.
Sadly, many women are injured each year and some even die because they have bought the lie. Still the pro-abortion industry will not face the facts. Abortion is legal, but it is not “safe,” and it is certainly not “rare.” They refuse to debate except in shrill paranoid screeds portraying peaceful protesters and sidewalk counselors as people who “want to deny women the right to choose.”
On the contrary, the pro-life movement has done everything humanly possible to help mothers and fathers make the right loving choices for their baby boys and girls. In recent years, more abortion clinics have been closed than ever before. How amazing it is that the abortion industry suddenly is collapsing in on itself!
Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics wrote recently: “It is increasingly obvious … our resolve is no match for their cowardice…. I want to predict that a time will come when every preacher, every priest, and every politician in America will be pushing and shoving to get to the front lines of the pro-life effort. I can even tell you when that seemingly unlikely event will occur — on the day it becomes obvious to them that victory over the abortion holocaust is at hand.”
