From Life Site, we learn what rally happens when people want to make a different “choice:”
In her second trimester of pregnancy, S.S. thought she wanted an abortion. On March 16, 2010, she and her mother traveled from their home in West Virginia to the run-down abortion clinic operated by Martin Ruddock in Cleveland, Ohio.
But what happened next changed her mind about the abortion and ultimately led to a civil suit with allegations that Ruddock broke the law, committed fraud, and attempted to alter evidence, according to court documentation obtained by Operation Rescue.
In her suit filed in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Please, S.S maintained that on the first day of what was to be a three-day abortion procedure at Ruddock’s Center for Women’s Health, she was told to sign six informed consent forms before she ever saw Ruddock. This was in direct violation of Ohio law that mandates that a physician must meet with a patient at least 24 hours prior to an abortion in order to provide the patient with certain disclosures about the abortion procedure.
She was then told that on the first and second days of the procedure, Ruddock would insert dilators, known as laminaria, into her cervix and that the abortion would be completed on the third day.
However, instead of waiting 24 hours after consent was given, as required by law, Ruddock began the abortion that same day by inserting three laminaria sticks into the patient’s cervix.
S.S. found this process extremely painful and caused her to have second thoughts about the abortion. She asked Ruddock to stop the abortion.
