A 22-year-old woman died following a late-term
abortion at the Preterm Abortion facility in Cleveland, Ohio. Lakisha
Wilson was transported to University Hospitals Case Medical Center on
March 21st around 11:30 a.m. According to a statement released by the
Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office, Wilson was treated at the
hospital and pronounced dead on March 28th.
Eyewitness accounts agree with a recorded 911 call which indicated
that Wilson was not breathing when she left the abortion facility. While
she lay on the gurney emergency personnel did not make obvious efforts
to resuscitate her.
One witness, Mary Fuerst, said she was praying hard as she watched
Wilson’s body being wheeled out of the abortion clinic. She said it
was very cold outside and Wilson’s stomach was not covered. Fuerst
said it was very shocking because she could see that this 22-year-old
woman was “very” pregnant.
Another witness, a retired dentist, said he was two feet from the
gurney and recognized Wilson was dead. Dr. Richard Ivan said he was
standing very close when she was brought out of the abortion clinic. He
said he saw no mask on her face or protection over her head. There was
no rush getting the woman to the hospital. Ivan said even as the
ambulance left the facility the siren was not activated nor were the
lights flashing as Wilson was taken to the hospital.
Wilson was immediately placed on life support once she arrived to the
hospital in order to save her organs but was already declared
brain-dead. Although the cause of death is pending an autopsy, there is
every indication that Wilson’s death was caused by the lateness of her

to Preterm Abortion’s website this facility conducts surgical
abortions up to and through 22 weeks of pregnancy.
Records show that on March 21st at 10:59 a.m. one of Preterm’s
employees called 911 to report a 22-year-old female patient who was at
their clinic but was not breathing. The caller told dispatch that the
patience was receiving CPR but was unconscious at the time of the call.
The employee also reported that efforts to restart respiration had not
Wilson’s CAD transcript lists the events surrounding the emergency
in chronological order. It showed an ambulance had been dispatched

clinic within three minutes and at 11:02 began medical procedures.
The CAD transcript contained the notations “Not breathing at all”
and “Cardiac or Respiratory Arrest/Death” along with the 9-E-1 code,
which is the most serious of life-threatening medical emergencies. There
was no indication during the 28 minutes that the emergency workers were
with the patient that she had ever resumed breathing.

to the ambulance. During this time emergency workers were not performing
any type of treatment on her.
