This past Friday Tonya Reaves, 24, died from a hemorrhage after an abortion at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Chicago. While we are deeply saddened by her senseless death, we are also deeply saddened to report that Ms. Reaves joins the ranks of perhaps of hundreds if not thousands of women harmed by legal abortion.
Many people may think that this is a rare occurrence but nothing can be further from the truth. Botched abortions happen all the time and yes some even result in death. Unfortunately, the abortion industry is so under regulated that many of the complications from abortions go unreported or are reported without adding the cause of abortion in the component.
Ms. Reaves unfortunate death is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. The CBS Chicago article states, “Tonya Reaves, 24, died late Friday night from a hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, as well as an intrauterine pregnancy as contributing causes, according to the medical examiner’s office. People, she didn’t die because she was pregnant, she died because she was butchered. Thus terminology may be offensive to some, but her death is more offensive.
“She died after she’d had an abortion at Planned Parenthood at 18 S. Michigan Ave,” according to the medical examiner’s office.”
“Her death was ruled an accident.” Accident, as in they messed up and killed her?
And what did Planned Parenthood have to say about her death?
In a written statement, Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO Carole Brite said “We were shocked and saddened upon learning of a tragic development at a nearby hospital. Our hearts go out to the loved ones of this patient.
“While legal abortion services in the United States have a very high safety record, a tragedy such as this is devastating to loved ones and we offer our deepest sympathies. Planned Parenthood of Illinois cares deeply about the health and safety of each and every patient. We do not publicly discuss private patient matters and we follow HIPAA laws that forbid the disclosure of patient information.”
But will Planned Parenthood be held responsible? Probably not. Should they? Absolutely.
As Operation Rescue writes in their article, “Abortion deaths like this are completely avoidable. When a woman bleeds to death after an abortion, it is usually an indication of error on the part of the abortionist coupled with a delay in calling for emergency assistance. Planned Parenthood should be held accountable,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “Our heartfelt prayers go out to the victim’s family at this time of tragic loss.”
Carol Everett, an ex. abortionist speaks out in Bloodmoney and tells of the many incidents of botched abortions and the industries lack of care for the safety of the women. Their main goal was to make money, laws and rules be damned.
The mainstream media doesn’t report many similar cases, do the abortion lobby continues to get away with murder.
Only when something as horrific as the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who ran an abortion clinic so macabre that it was called a “House of Horrors” will the media report on it. But check out a pro-life website like Operation Rescue and you will see report after report of botched abortions.
We must start demanding that regulatory agencies start doing their jobs and inspect abortion clinics and if they are found in violation of the law, shut them down.
Women need to be protected from predators that are more interested in the almighty dollar than they are about the safety of their patients.
For years Silent No More Awareness and other concerned citizens have been reporting about the harmful effects of abortion and unnatural birth control remedies. Breast cancer, strokes, heart attacks and other maladies such as the serious and fatal injuries and ultimately deaths are all part of the lies behind the masks of false compassion the abortionists wear.
More civil wrongs in the name of women’s rights. God forbid.
