The following comes from a February 25 Operation Rescue article by Cheryl Sullenger:
Bakersfield, CA – Bedlam broke out at the FPA Women’s Health abortion facility in Bakersfield as an ambulance arrived to transport a patient suffering a medical emergency. Two abortion supporters assaulted pro-life activists while trying to document the incident, which took place on February 23, 2016.
As the ambulance arrived, several clinic workers wearing red scrubs surrounded the ambulance with white sheets to impede those who were trying to photograph the incident.
As a woman was being prepared for emergency transport, a man and woman began to push and shove Tim and Terri Palmquist, a husband-wife sidewalk counseling team. The man followed Terri in a harassing manner and attempted to block her on the public sidewalk while the woman knocked over a ladder that moments earlier Terri had used to take photos over the sheets held by the clinic workers.
Later, the man kicked over memorial crosses that were stuck into the public easement around the abortion facility then threw a cup of soda at Tim Palmquist. Once police finally arrived, the man was arrested for vandalism.
Thanks to the Palmquists, Operation Rescue has documented ten medical emergencies at this FPA abortion facility just since August, 2012. This means that the Bakersfield FPA Women’s Health abortion facility hospitalizes an abortion patient on average about once every four months.
