April 1, 2014:
Cleveland woman dies during abortion; identity confirmed.
CLEVELAND, OH: Right to Life of Northeast Ohio, in conjunction with other pro-life organizations, has confirmed the death and identity of Lakisha Wilson, 22, a patient of the Preterm abortion facility in Cleveland, Ohio, who was transported to University Hospital Case Medical Center on Friday, March 21, 2014.
According to a statement released by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office: "Decedent was conveyed from 12000 Shaker Blvd., in Cleveland to University Hospitals Case Medical Center and arrived on 3-21-14 where she was treated, expired and was pronounced on 3-21-14." 911 call records obtained by Operation Rescue indicated that a woman had died after an abortion at Preterm. Those records also stated that she was "not breathing at all" and had suffered "cardiac or respiratory arrest/death." An autopsy is being conducted and a cause of death is pending, however; there is no doubt that her death was caused by the late-term abortion she received on March 21, 2014.

"The loss of any life is a tragedy, especially the innocent life of the aborted child. However, the death of 22 year old Lakisha Wilson from what the abortion industry proclaims as health care should not be swept under the rug. The public needs to be informed of the real dangers of abortion, and Lakisha's family deserves justice." --Denise Leipold, Right to Life of Northeast Ohio.

Members of Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. Joseph's Catholic churches and Right to Life of Northeast Ohio staged an all-day demonstration in front of Capital Care Network, 2127 State Road, on Oct. 16 as part of the 40 days For Life campaign, which runs through Nov. 4. According to www.40daysforlife.com, this campaign is "the largest and longest internationally coordinated pro-life mobilization in history." Pictured from left are Denise Leipold, Marion Kruty, Bob Kruty, Paulette Urycki, Linda Sedita and Aggie Denning. While some drivers honked their horns in support of the demonstrators who held signs against abortion, one resident who parked in front of the clinic took the opposing view. "Someone coming here to this clinic is making a hard choice, a choice that they have not taken lightly," said Danielle Toth of Cuyahoga Falls. "The last thing in the world they need is a group like this giving them literature on how their baby has a soul." "Abortion is killing and God said, 'Thou shalt not kill,'" said Urycki, of Cuyahoga Falls. "Even though there are times when it would have been much easier to go the other way, life is not always easy."
