Chicago woman killed in Planned Parenthood abortionInstead of expressing sympathy or calling for an investigation, the left's knee-jerk response is that pro-lifers are "exploiting" this young woman's death to advance their cause. Which just goes to prove that despite their back-alley abortions and coat-hanger rhetoric, their first objective is not the welfare of women.
Tonya Reaves killed by incomplete abortion, perforated uterus, and delay, documents say
CHICAGO, July 26, 2012, (Operation Rescue)--New documents released in the Tonya Reaves tragedy reveal a timeline leading to her death that clearly shows Planned Parenthood delayed summoning emergency care for the dying woman for five-and-a-half hours after a severely botched abortion.
At 11:00 a.m. on Friday, Reaves received a second-trimester dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortion at Planned Parenthood, located at 18 S. Michigan Ave. in Chicago.
After the abortion, Reaves suffered bleeding. The bleeding continued at Planned Parenthood for five-and-a-half hours before a Fire Department ambulance finally took her to Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 4:30 p.m. according to a report from Steve Miller of the CBS news affiliate WBBM.
"It is clear that Planned Parenthood botched the procedure that resulted in uncontrolled bleeding then failed to treat the hemorrhage while Reaves was at their clinic, allowing her to bleed for over five hours before finally calling for help. There can be no doubt that this delay contributed to her death," said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. "The injury and the untreated hemorrhage happened at Planned Parenthood, and they are solely responsible for it."
Once at the hospital, it appears the emergency room staff had to start from scratch to figure out the extent of Reaves' injuries.
According to Dr. James C. Anderson, M.D., in his 30 years of experience as an emergency room physician, abortion clinics never informed him about their patients' conditions.
"I have always had to evaluate the situation, come to my own conclusions, and initiate what I thought was appropriate treatment. This definitely created some time delays that were not in the patient's best interest," stated Dr. Anderson. "These delays can have life-threatening implications when dealing with hemorrhage or infection."
In Tonya's case, that delay proved fatal.

On a related note, I wanted to bring this to your attention as well.
Instead of being grateful that they were privileged to share a few minutes with their precious baby, this couple would have opted instead to have her poor little body burned with saline. Or torn to pieces. Or partially delivered and then her brain stem stabbed. All because they didn't want to have to WATCH her suffer. That's the key word - WATCH. She would have suffered no matter how she died. They just didn't want to have to see it.

What a beautiful woman whose life was cut short. My heart aches for her, her family and unborn child. Wonder how much truthful coverage this story will get?
Was she counseled about placing her child for adoption? Did she know so many families are waiting for a child?
