Big Tax Bucks Linked to Abortion Deaths Glaring in the Light of the Tonya Reaves Lawsuits

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Last summer, the National Black Prolife Coalition was among the first and most outraged groups to demand justice for the death of Tonya Reaves, a young Black woman killed by abortion in Chicago. For years, women who have been harmed by abortion have been crying out that “abortion hurts women!” Janet Morana is right to lead the crusade to RECALL ABORTION. As we somberly yet purposefully approach the 40 year landmine of the anniversary of Roe VS Wade, let us make no mistake about it. We are ready to continue this battle for LIFE AT ALL COSTS.

Yesterday Operation Rescue wrote an article stating that a second lawsuit had been filed against Planned Parenthood in the death of Tonya Reaves. Again, Tonya Reaves was a 24 year-old woman who went to Planned Parenthood for an abortion which they botched. She was then left bleeding for five hours before an ambulance was called. She was rushed to the hospital where they discovered that the abortion performed by Planned Parenthood was incomplete and she had to undergo another abortion in the hospital to remove the remainder of the baby. But it was too late and Tonya Reaves died later that evening in the hospital.

The first wrongful death lawsuit against Planned Parenthood was filed by Tonya’s family. The second lawsuit was filed on behalf of Tonya’s surviving son, Alvin, by his father. Tonya and her baby died, leaving young Alvin motherless.

Some people will not understand that along with the injustice of Planned Parenthood killing Tonya, another injustice occurred. They killed her baby in her womb as well. So how do we express to Tonya’s family in a loving way that two people died that day?

Because of lack of coverage by much of the media, not too many people are even aware of Tonya’s murder. And despite efforts by the National Black Prolife Coalition through press releases to hold Planned Parenthood accountable, there seems to be an unusual amount of stall tactics where justice should prevail. One can’t help but remember the onslaught of outrage during the Trayon Martin tragedy? Where are all of those outraged Black leaders who were demanding swift justice for the tragic slaying of Trayvon?

Not only are the leaders of the NAACP and other Black voices such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson lacking in conversation surrounding the unjust death of Tonya. Absent also is the outrage over the death of Tonya’s baby and the other 3,699 babies that were killed that day in abortion mills throughout this country. And all the while, Planned Parenthood keeps laughing on the way to the bank while killing hundreds of thousands of babies every year, to the tune of over 50 million dead babies on record since 1973. What’s even worse is that where before 2012, Planned Parenthood was receiving $1 million dollars a day in U. S. tax dollars, yes, around $365 million dollars a year; in 2012 they received over $500 million dollars from our tax coffers. And they are still operating poorly regulated killing centers around this country. And in a few days, people will be observe the 40th commemoration of legal baby slaughter in America.

Yes, abortion is legal; but it shouldn’t be. Abortion is not civil. Abortion is not moral. Abortion hurts women, kills babies, and even kills women like Tonya and the countless others who have died from abortion and/or subsequent complications over the years. Coat hangers are the excuse they hang over the head of the dead babies and maimed women. But as is explained by recording artist Fred Hammond, many women never used a coat hanger even when abortion was illegal. They just had a “medical procedure” called a D&C for a “mysterious female ailment” which was really a baby in the mother’s/patient’s womb.

The abortion industry began saying that they wanted to make abortion legal, safe, and rare. They have successes in one, legal. Safe, not so. Ask Tonya. Rare? Is 54+ million rare?

As for rare, Planned Parenthood’s annual report just released for FY 2011-2012 (calendar year 2011) shows that abortions are not rare with a record number of abortions in 2011 with 333,964. Over the last three years (2009-2011) Planned Parenthood has performed nearly one million abortions (995,687)

As for safe, well, I think we’ve covered that. I would just like to mention that there have been over 345 reported deaths linked directly botched abortions. And that’s just the ones that we know of that have been attributed to the abortions and are documented. Many other deaths are attributed to other causes but are actually a result of abortion complications.

This outrage bears repeating over and over – despite the government’s saying that they do not pay for abortions, Planned Parenthood received a record $542 million in taxpayer funding last year. They can spin it any way they want to, but our tax dollars are funding murder by abortion and not just for babies. Their mothers are dying too. Women are being lied to; told that abortions are safe and are a civil right. And our babies are dying.

I’M OUTRAGED! WE ALL SHOULD BE OUTRAGED! RECALL ABORTION now!

IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME: Black Leaders Urge: Stop the Killing, Vote Biblical Values for Life on November 6

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

For Immediate Release
November 1, 2012

Contact: Eugene Vigil
757-593-9982

Atlanta, GA — Citing the deaths of hundreds of women, Dr. Alveda King, Dr. Day Gardner and Rev. Catherine Davis of the National Black Prolife Coalition Women’s IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME PROJECT are urging everyone to vote biblical values on November 6.

“Life is precious and beautiful. The brutal deaths of women who die by abortion warrant a vote for life and family. Stop the killing; vote for life,” said Dr. King who heads up www.africanamericanoutreach.com.

“Walter B. Hoye II, founder of Issues4Life Foundation, sanctions this urgent appeal:“Abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation, has left a trail of dead women and over 55 million babies in its wake. Last July Tonya Reaves died from an abortion done in a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Chicago. Ms. Reaves isn’t a poster child. She was a soon to be married, beautiful Black woman, mother and twin sister who is yet another victim of the abortion industry’s criminal negligence and depraved indifference toward women and children. My wife and I are praying this tragedy awakens the collective conscience of Black America to this wretched, unregulated and tax-payer funded industry that is profiting from the deaths of our women and children.” Rev. Hoye is a leader in the call for a criminal investigation into the death of Ms. Reaves and other women harmed by abortion.”

In television and radio commercials, the group notes that fathers, mothers, womb babies and society at large are at risk.

“DBA is alarming. Millions of babies have died, thousands of women have been maimed and hundreds of women have died from legal abortions in America since the passage of Roe VS Wade. It could have been me or someone you love,” said Dr. Gardner, founder of the National Black Prolife Union.

NBPC’s national efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, is advancing their ongoing “awareness campaign” to inform, educate and activate people to get involved to end the “scourge of abortion.” A biblical prolife vote is part of their message.

“The best way to help people is not to fund abortion and contraceptives, but rather support biblical values. People need jobs and education, not abortions,” added Dr. King.

“We’re not advocating a personality contest for voters next week. This issue is too important to play politics. The truth isn’t always politically correct. We want voters to go to the polls and not stay home. We want people to remember God and life when they go to vote” added Dr. Gardner. More information on the campaign can be found at www.couldhavebeenme.com.

Why did so many vote for President Obama in 2008?

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

As an African American, as a woman, as a Christian, and as human being, I’ve been asking myself, “Why did no many people vote for President Obama in 2008 – why????”

Why did over 50% of Catholics…

Why did over 90% of African Americans…

Why did so many Christians…

Why did so many women…

Vote for the most abortion supporting, homosexual marriage supporting, trash the economy supporting President in American History??????

Why did President Obama win the women’s vote in 2008?

President Obama appeals to women’s need for independence and control over their bodies and their reproductive freedom. This desire for women’s rights is not a bad desire. But women still believe that abortion and contraceptives are health care. They are not! Abortion kills babies and even women.

And the population that is harmed the most by abortion is the Black women. Case in point is Tonya Reaves who died on July 20, 2012 after having a botched abortion at a Planned Parenthood killing center in Chicago, Illinois.

Why a woman would vote for a candidate who promises health benefits and delivers death is beyond me – except for the fact that we know that people are being deceived. The lie is that abortion and contraceptives are health care. The truth is that health care prevents sickness and cures disease. A baby is not a sickness, a pregnancy is not a disease. But the so called cure of abortion and contraceptives kill babies and harm women.

People do not have all of the facts. There are harmful side effects from using contraceptives and getting abortions; increased risks of breast cancer, cervical cancer, strokes, heart attacks, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, and any more.

Women are making important decisions regarding their bodies without having all the necessary information. Abortion and contraception (surgery and drugs) hurt women. They are NOT healthcare.

All too often all across the country, women are being transported to hospitals after botched abortions. You might ask, “why haven’t I heard about this?” The mainstream media doesn’t want to report this information. If you don’t read pro-life blogs regularly, I’m not surprised that you haven’t heard these vital facts.

And forget about the abortion industry telling you the truth. They haven’t done that ever. Just recently I heard of a young lady who was told by an abortion facility that she wasn’t pregnant with a baby but that all it was was “a sac filled with fluid and tissue.”

Women think that President Obama is a friend to women. He is not. He is not pro-life. Abortion is not healthcare. Abortion kills women and abortion kills babies, real human persons in their earliest stages of their development but human persons just the same.

People are misinformed. Let the truth be told.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and President of the National Pro-life Religious Council, announced today that the national pro-life prayer service to be held on the morning of Friday, January 25, in Washington, D.C. will be dedicated to the memory of Miss Nellie Gray, who led the March for Life every year since 1974.

The service, known as the National Memorial for the Pre-Born and Their Mothers and Fathers, is interdenominational, and has taken place for nearly two decades. The planning for the January service has been in the works for a couple of years already, due to the significance of this January being the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.

“Now, we have an even deeper meaning to the service,” said Fr. Pavone. “We will thank the Lord for Nellie, we will commend her to the Author of Life, and we will beg God that He will bestow on us all a double-portion of her spirit. Attending this service will be a wonderful way to honor her memory and renew our determination to fulfill her vision.”

The service will take place from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 25 in the DAR Constitution Hall, 1776 D Street Northwest, Washington, D.C. It is open to the public. That same afternoon, the March for Life, which Nellie Gray led, will take place. To keep up to date as plans progress for the morning prayer service and other events regarding the 40th anniversary of Roe, visit www.roevswade40.com.

Black Pro-life Coalition Calls for Planned Parenthood Accountability in Chicago Death

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Contact: Walter B. Hoye II, National Black Pro-life Coalition, 510-225-4055 ext 4

UNION CITY, Calif., Aug. 1, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — Abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation, has left a trail of dead women and over 54 million babies in its wake where, disproportionately, thirty five percent of those dead babies are Black.

Planned Parenthood has long maintained abortion is a safe option for women. They keep pictures of coat hangers before the public, assuring America that keeping abortion legal will protect women from harm. Yet, in 1972, Planned Parenthood funneled money to psychologist Harvey Karman who worked with (recently indicted Philadelphia “House of Horrors” abortionist) Kermit Gosnell to implement a “super-coil” abortion method on 15 black pregnant women. These low-income women, all in their second trimester, were bussed from Chicago to Philadelphia for this “safe” procedure. Nine of these women were seriously harmed during the violent experiment, including one who had to have a hysterectomy.

Today, just like then, women’s lives and health are never the concern of Planned Parenthood and other abortionists. Ryan Bomberger, Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation believes: “Pro-abortion activists like to call abortion ‘reproductive justice,’ but we can only call this reproductive death. In the inverted and violent world of pro-abortion activism, ‘justice’ inflicts harm upon the weaker and the defenseless — the unborn.”

Stephen Broden, Senior Pastor of Fair Park Bible Fellowship believes: “The recent death of Tonya Reaves in Chicago is only one example of the tragic havoc Planned Parenthood has wreaked across America. They are a threat to our women, children and ultimately our survival. Their influence and presence must be removed from our community.”

Pro-abortion journalists claim conservatives are making this political. Catherine Davis, Founder and President of the Restoration Project, finds the accusation repugnant: “The tragedy in Chicago should never have happened. That facility was not medically equipped to handle a surgical late term abortion. This is about the failure of an organization that holds itself out as a champion of women, and women’s issues to champion reasonable medical standards.”

“At a minimum, Planned Parenthood was criminally negligent when they left Tonya bleeding in their facility for more than five hours. Planned Parenthood’s lack of action demonstrates a depraved indifference for the life of this young woman. Planned Parenthood must be held accountable for the death of Tonya Reaves,” said Walter Hoye of the Issues4Life Foundation, the California Civil Rights Foundation and the Frederick Douglass Foundation of California.

Rev. Arnold Culbreath, Director of Urban Outreach for Protecting Black Life agrees. “Surely the African-American community will wake up and stop giving Planned Parenthood a pass. Too many of our women and children have been butchered at their hands,” he said.

“We pray this tragedy awakens the collective conscience of Black America to a wretched and unregulated industry that is profiting from the deaths of children and the deliberate mis-education of young women,” said Dean Nelson, Chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation.

“We still believe that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” said Alveda King, Founder of King for America. “We demand the unjust targeting of the black community by abortionists be investigated and immediately ended.”

Black Pro-Life Leaders Call for Planned Parenthood to be Held Accountable

Friday, July 27th, 2012

National Black Prolife Coalition
510-225-4055, ext 4

UNION CITY, Calif., July 26, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — The National Black Prolife Coalition expresses heartfelt sympathy to the family of Tonya Reaves — the most recent victim of a botched abortion performed at a Chicago Planned Parenthood facility. Tonya’s death is particularly tragic because this is not Planned Parenthood’s and other abortionists’ first incident killing both mother and child. Abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation, has left a trail of dead women and over 54 million babies in its wake.

Planned Parenthood has long maintained abortion is a safe, just option for women. They claim that keeping it legal will ensure no more women are harmed. However, Ryan Bomberger, Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation disagrees: “Pro-abortion activists like to call abortion “reproductive justice,’ but we can only call this reproductive death. We mourn for the loss of these two lives and the devastation of many more, regardless of race.”

Stephen Broden, senior pastor of Fair Park Bible Fellowship believes “Tonya Reaves death is a tragedy that must be made known across America. This is another example of how Planned Parenthood is a threat to our women, children and ultimately our survival. Their influence and presence must be removed from our community,” he said.

Pro-abortion activists claim that pro-life advocates are using Ms. Reaves tragic death as a means to promote a political agenda. However Catherine Davis, Founder and President of the Restoration Project, finds that idea repugnant: “Tonya Reaves death is not about a political agenda. This is about the healthcare disparities Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers have long inflicted upon Black women all across America. This is about the failure of an organization that holds itself out as a champion of women, to champion reasonable medical care standards for women of color.”

“Abortion is the leading cause of death among Blacks and once again Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, is involved in the death of our women and children. No one has the right to take the life of an innocent human being. It’s time Planned Parenthood be held accountable for the loss of life in its abortion dens,” said Walter B. Hoye II, Founder & President, Issues4Life Foundation.

Rev. Arnold Culbreath, Director of Urban Outreach for Protecting Black Life agrees. “Surely the African-American community will wake up and stop giving Planned Parenthood a pass after seeing Tonya Reaves killed and her unborn baby butchered at their hands,” he said.

“We pray this tragedy awakens the collective conscience of Black America to a wretched, unregulated industry that has profited from the deaths of children and deliberate miseducation of young women” said Dean Nelson, Chairman, Frederick Douglass Foundation.

“We still believe that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” said Alveda King, Founder of King for America. “Tonya’s death is unjust and our prayers go out to Tonya’s family and her now orphaned son, Alvin.”

I am Outraged. I am Incensed. Remember Tonya Reaves

Friday, July 27th, 2012

These two blogs came from my good friend Catherine Davis. You can check out other blogs from her at http://talkaboutitcd.blogspot.com/

I Am Outraged. I Am Incensed. Remember Tonya Reaves.

As I am writing this post and it has been a while since I have posted something, I am outraged, absolutely incensed! I am also so very tired of the duplicity and subterfuge of the abortion industry in general and Planned Parenthood in particular. Planned Parenthood has long used infant and maternal mortality rates of the black community to justify the construction of their abortion dens in urban areas where blacks reside. They have told their foot soldiers to cite historical disparities whenever the black prolife community refers to the numbers of abortions on black women. Call for an end to the disparities they are told, so that they are controlling the conversation. There is one disparity however, they want to make sure quickly dies in the media. There is one disparity they are furiously working to bury. On Friday, July 20, 2012, there was death and mayhem across America. A mad man took the lives of at least 12, and injured 58. But there was more mayhem in America on that same day. A young 24 year old mother, daughter, sister who thought she was having one of the “safest medical procedures provided in the United States and Canada today” died. Her name was Tonya Reaves. Tonya went to the Planned Parenthood on 18 S. Michigan Ave in Chicago and did not return home. Instead she was transported to a hospital where she “died of a hemorrhage and her pregnancy was a contributing factor”. Nowhere was it mentioned that Planned Parenthood’s failure to exercise reasonable medical care was the cause of her death. All across America there is a wake of women who like Tonya, have been reproductively maimed or killed by Planned Parenthood or one of the other many abortionists that hold themselves out as providing safe choices for women. As anti-life forces were urged to do in a Congressional Black Caucus, Pro-Choice Caucus briefing at the United States Capital on May 10, 2012, Mary Mitchell, of the Chicago Sun Times, one of the pro-abortion “friendly” media members, turned the conversation away from the death of Tonya Reaves at the hands of a Planned Parenthood abortionist. Instead of focusing on the lack of reasonable medical care in the abortion industry she began to shift the focus toward the billboards and other education tools the black pro-life community has used to educate about abortion’s genocidal impact in the black community. She shamelessly, while accusing the pro-life community of attempting to make Ms. Reaves our poster child for life, began the fast track of painting Planned Parenthood and abortion as the injured victims. Shame on her and shame on them! Before the Reaves family can even mourn their loss and lay their family member to rest, Planned Parenthood has begun their spin, washing their hands of their negligence and participation in Tonya’s death. This issue is not about choice. It is not about a woman making a “heart wrenching” decision about an extremely private procedure” as Mary wants us to believe. For years now the pro-abortion community has marched, chanted, and screamed when there has been any attempt to regulate abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation. Any attempts to ensure abortionists are giving women the reasonable measure of care we have come to expect for any other surgical procedure are met with resistance and demonstrations. Yet, the 2011 Guttmacher Institute report Facts on Induced Abortion in the United States, stated that “fewer than 0.3% of abortion patients experience a complication that requires hospitalization”. That minimal percentage actually translates into at least 3,000 women requiring hospitalization in each of the years that abortion reached 1.2 million or higher which has been the case since 1977. So in 35 years that would mean more than 100,000 women have been injured. Even if we only counted those injured since the issuance of the 1999 report Guttmacher is citing, we are looking at more than 42,000 women. I wonder who considers that a reasonable number because I certainly don’t. I think the average woman does not know that: “the risk of death associated with abortion increases with the length of pregnancy, from one death for every one million abortions at or before eight weeks to one per 29,000 at 16–20 weeks—and one per 11,000 at 21 or more weeks” and I doubt the abortionist informs the woman of this potentially life impacting fact before he does the procedure. According to Guttmacher about nineteen percent of the approximately 1.2 million abortions each year are performed on women who are sixteen or more weeks pregnant. Each year then we can expect seven to eight deaths of the mother. Again, I do not think this is reasonable, especially for the families whose loved one has died. Let’s keep it real, Planned Parenthood is spitting in our face and calling it rain and they really believe we don’t know the difference. No this is not about choice. This is about the healthcare disparities Planned Parenthood has long inflicted upon black women all across America. This is about the failure of an organization that holds itself out as a champion of women, to champion reasonable health care for women of color. Wake up America. We have genocide within the shores of the nation that was long thought of as the shining light on the hill. We have dressed the genocide up in the clothing of women’s rights while the population control enthusiasts kill our babies, our daughters, our mothers. I am outraged, more than incensed . . .

I am Outraged. I am Incenced Times Two

I received this comment on my most recent blog, I Am Outraged. I Am Incensed, about the death of Tonya Reaves from someone named Kathi: “While this is a very sad death, the number of women who experience complications or die during an abortion procedure are a lot less than the number of women who have complications or die during pregnancy! Amnesty International reports that at least 2 women die EVERY DAY in the US due to pregnancy.“ I have waited to comment so that I would not be flippant with Kathi. I have waited to write because I did not want to do this out of anger. I have spent this time trying to convince myself that Kathi really believes that her comment is somehow relevant to this discussion and she is not just another rabidly pro-abortion advocate that supports the abortion at all costs ideology. And then I received this news from CBS in Chicago: “Reaves had the abortion – formally called a “D and E” or dilation and evacuation procedure – at Planned Parenthood at 18 S. Michigan Ave. at 11 a.m., according to documents. After the procedure, she was suffering bleeding, and a Fire Department ambulance took her to Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 4:30 p.m.” I am just stunned and crushed. For five and one half hours Tonya lay in the Planned Parenthood on 18 S. Michigan in Chicago with her life’s blood pouring out of her. And Planned Parenthood clearly – did -nothing – to save her life. They did not even check her to determine why she was bleeding so profusely. They couldn’t have – because once at the hospital Tonya underwent a second D and E procedure. This means the abortion done by Planned Parenthood was incomplete. Not only had they left parts of Tonya’s baby in her but later the emergency room physician, through a second ultra sound discovered her uterus had been perforated as well, but now it was too late to save her life. Kathi, I cannot imagine the horror Tonya faced as she realized how great the injury she had suffered was. I cannot imagine her thoughts as she slipped away, unable to be resuscitated because Planned Parenthood cared so little for her life that they held her in their abortion den until the lifesaving aid that was being rendered by a leading Trauma unit in Chicago was not enough to bring her back from the brink of death toward which Planned Parenthood pushed her. I cannot imagine that you or anyone else can compare this butchery with the trauma that is sometimes experienced in the natural process of childbirth. I am outraged. I am incensed times two. Substandard medical care is the order of the day with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers– especially when dealing with black women. In their population control and eugenic enthusiasm they routinely injure and sometimes kill women. In their arrogance they believe they can simply change the conversation and none of us will notice the trail of reproductive destruction that is sister to the always death generating practice of abortion. May God have mercy on us if we allow this to continue.

National Funeral Service Friday Morning

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: July 26, 2012

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

STATEN ISLAND, NY — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement about a funeral service planned for tomorrow for an aborted baby.

“On Friday morning, July 27, I will stand proudly with my brothers and sisters of Operation Save America to honor the body of an aborted child for whom we will offer a memorial service in which the public will have an opportunity to participate. We have also arranged for the burial of the child.

“It is not often that we have the bodies of aborted babies. Unfortunately, the act by which their lives are dishonored and their bodies dismembered takes those bodies and discards them with the medical waste.

“But once in a while, we are able to retrieve these bodies. When we do so, we give them the honor that others have denied them. The act of violence that killed them is done in secret; we believe that the act of reparation that honors them should be done in public. The cold-hearted killing was done in darkness; the broken-hearted mourning should be done in the bright light of day.

“We will have an open casket at this memorial service so that people can see the bruised body of this baby. The body is intact, having been killed by prostaglandin abortion, which induces violent contractions that bruise and ultimately kill the child. Seeing the child awakens the conscience to the fact that abortion kills real people, and must be put to an end without further delay.”

This service will occur Friday, July 27, in Charlotte, NC at the intersection of Trade and Tryon at 10 a.m. ET.

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit Priests for Life.
