CDC – 12 women died in abortion related deaths according to latest survey

NEW YORK (November 21, 2012)–U.S. abortions fell 5 percent over a year from 2008 to 2009, the largest decrease in at least a decade, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.

Those are the most recent government numbers available, the CDC said.

For 2009, a total of 784,507 abortions were reported from the 45 reporting areas that submitted data every year during 2000–2009. Comparing 2008 with 2009, this represents the largest single-year decrease in the total number (a decrease of 5% from 810,403) and rate (a decrease of 5% from 15.9 abortions per 1,000 women) of reported abortions.women in their 20s consistently accounted for the majority of abortions (56%–57%).


In the Abortion Surveillance — United States, 2009, released November 2012

In 2008, the most recent year for which data were available, 12 women were reported to have died as a result of complications from known legal induced abortions. No reported deaths were associated with known illegal induced abortions. Deaths of women associated with complications from abortions for 2009 are being investigated under CDC’s Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System. Keep in mind that all the deaths are not reported because they are often covered up by the abortion industry. In addition not every state or every abortion entity reported stats to the CDC.

This past summer, a 24 year old African American woman died following her abortion at Planned Parenthood.

Tonya Reaves, died late Friday July 20, 2012 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. She died after she’d had an abortion at Planned Parenthood at 18 S. Michigan Av, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher, is calling on Cook County Illinois State’s Attorney, Anita Alvarez, to immediately launch an investigation into the death of Tonya Reaves. He says the investigation is necessary to determine if criminal charges are warranted under the state’s “depraved indifference murder” statutes.

What is now known is that the Planned Parenthood abortionist ripped a hole in Ms. Reaves’ uterus and she began to hemorrhage. It is also known that the Planned Parenthood staff let her lie there for over five hours before they called an ambulance.

Crutcher says, “It is clear that Tonya’s life was less important to these people than the public relations hit they might take from her being hauled out of their facility on a stretcher. And so they just watched her bleed out. Imagine that the Chicago police shoot a 24-year-old man and leave him lying in the street without calling an ambulance. If that young man bleeds to death a few hours later, the public would be demanding that charges be brought against the officers involved whether the shooting was justified or not. And rightly so. Well, that certainly appears to mirror what happened here.”

Operation Rescue has posted the gruesome Medical Examiners Report of the Reaves death from Planned Parenthood here

Maurice Stevenson’s wife died of a blood infection in 2002 after undergoing an abortion at Planned Parenthood.

The Chicago Tribune asked Planned Parenthood about the death of Stevenson’s wife and they told the Tribune they could not confirm whether they had reported the 2002 death of Stevenson’s wife, only that it had reported the 2008 death of another patient.

The California Medical Board has suspended the license of a contract abortionist for Planned Parenthood who was already on probation pending an Aug. 2 hearing before an administrative law judge in Oakland.

The Medical Board issued an “interim suspension order” on July 25 against Dr. Jesse James Joplin who, according to Medical Board documents, has worked for Planned Parenthood for 27 years. He is currently a “supervising physician” for Planned Parenthood-Mar Monte, headquartered in San Jose.

This is not the first time Joplin has been in trouble with the Medical Board. His license was revoked in 1997, but the revocation was stayed and Joplin was placed on five years probation in connection with the death of one patient and the attempted abortion of a viable fetus on a 15-year-old girl.

Medical Board records show that Joplin was found to be guilty of “gross negligence and incompetence” in the April 1990 death of 26-year-old patient “Y.G.” Joplin, the Board’s records show, failed to act on the young woman’s high blood pressure and passing proteins in her urine. After she gave birth to a baby boy, “Y.G.” died from toxemia.

Non-Hispanic white women and non-Hispanic black women accounted for the largest percentages of abortions (37.7% and 35.4%, respectively), whereas Hispanic women and non-Hispanic women in the other races category accounted for smaller percentages (20.6% and 6.3%, respectively). Non-Hispanic white women had the lowest abortion rates (8.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and ratios (140 abortions per 1,000 live births), whereas non-Hispanic black women had the highest abortion rates (32.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and ratios (477 abortions per 1,000 live births).

The abortion rate decreased 7% for non-Hispanic white women (from 9.1 abortions per 1,000 women in 2007 to 8.5 in 2009) and 6% for Hispanic women (from 20.5 abortions per 1,000 women in 2007 to 19.3 in 2009) but only 1% for non-Hispanic black women (from 34.6 abortions per 1,000 women in 2007 to 34.2 in 2009).
