Planned Parenthood Clinic Uses Third Party Service to Call 911-Hinders Emergency Care

[LIFE SITE] October 18, 2019 (Operation Rescue) — When a medical emergency arose at a Baltimore Planned Parenthood abortion facility recently, one Planned Parenthood employee did something unusual. Instead of picking up the telephone and dialing 911 — the quickest way to get help — she used a Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) to call the Intrado Emergency Call Relay Center, which, in turn, placed the call to the 911 exchange.

However, when the woman from the call relay center provided an incomplete address given by the Planned Parenthood employee, identified as Raishonda Jefferson-Lampton, the call center was forced to put Ms. Jefferson-Lampton on the line directly with the 911 dispatcher.

Once she confirmed the Planned Parenthood facility’s correct address, an ambulance was finally dispatched.

It is possible that Planned Parenthood was trying to avoid a public record of this incident by using an Internet-based line and routing through a third-party. Open records laws do not apply to private businesses, such as a call relay center. But this ruse did not work for Planned Parenthood because the call relay center contacted 911 so an ambulance could be dispatched. This created a record that was subject to public access.

The rest of the 911 recording and the Computer Aided Dispatch printout, which were provided to Operation Rescue by the pro-life group Defend Life, were heavily redacted to remove any mention of why paramedics were needed.
