CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

22 year old Lakisha Wilson was at Preterm Clinic in Cleveland to have an abortion but during her visit there were complications.

She died seven days later.

"Cleveland EMS and Fire what is your emergency," asked 911 dispatch.

"I have a patient at our Clinic who is not breathing," answered a caller from Preterm Clinic.

Many pro-life organizations have already made up their minds. They want Preterm to go away. 

"Would you agree no matter what the outcome here that your organization really just want this clinic to be shut down," asked reporter Scott Taylor.

"Yes," shouted a group of pro life supporters.

"That's not why we are here," said Mark Harrington with createdequal.net

"I am saying regardless you want this clinic to be shut down," added Taylor.

"No question about it," stated said Mark Harrington.

Some pro-life supporters are using Lakisha's death as a platform with opinions sounding a lot like facts unless you start asking questions.  

"This kind of cover up only adds to the illusion that abortion is safe," said Sarah Sullinger with Operation Rescue.

"Lakisha Wilson is the most recent victim of a botched abortion performed here at PreTerm Abortion Clinic," said Pastor Walter Moss of Canton, Ohio.

19 Action News checked and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has yet to rule on Lakisha's cause of death.    

Her death remains under investigation.
