24 year old Tonya Reaves’ abortion begins

MandygittlerPlanned Parenthood abortionist Mandy Gittler’s deposition sheds light on Tonya Reaves’ final day of life, which began when she reported to a Planned Parenthood office located at 18 South Michigan in Chicago, Illinois, on the morning of July 20, 2012.

While the autopsy report confirms the South Michigan location, there is some concern that Reaves’ abortion did not take place there because there is no indication that surgical abortions are done at that location. In any case, the address of the Planned Parenthood facility where Reaves had her abortion is not mentioned in her deposition.

However, the cost of Reaves’ second trimester abortion was mentioned in the deposition. She was charged just $459 for a procedure that often costs upwards of $1,000. It is possible that the rest of Reaves’ abortion fee was subsidized by an abortion fund.

A news report based on a confidential hospital source filed by Steve Miller of News Radio WBBM and the First Call Sheet included with Reaves’ autopsy report both indicate that her 16-week Dilation and Extraction abortion began at 11:00 a.m. However, Gittler testified that she did not begin Reaves’ abortion until 12:51 p.m. This represents a large discrepancy in the time-line of events that lead to Reaves’ death.

Gittler said that she hardly spoke to Reaves prior to the abortion, except to ask four questions that she asks of every patient related to their confidence in their decision to abort. She indicated that she could not remember Reaves’ responses, but that they were, in her words, “Nothing out of the ordinary.”

Procedure 1

Reaves was first sedated for her 16 week Dilation and Evacuation abortion. Gittler inserted the speculum, which opened the birth canal so she could see the cervix, which is the neck of the womb. She pulled the cervix down with scissor-life grasping instrument called a tenaculum then injected the cervix with an anesthetic. She then began inserting dilators into the opening of the cervix in order to make it big enough to accommodate the 16 mm rigid cannula, which is a clear plastic tube attached to a suction machine.

Gittler then inserted the 16 mm rigid cannula and began to suction. At some point, ring forceps were used to grasp and remove parts of the baby.

It was 1:04 pm when Gittler finished, removed the speculum, and rectally administered 800 micrograms of Misoprostol, also known as Cytotec, a drug that causes the uterus to contract and seal off blood vessels for minimal bleeding.

Blood on the chuck
TonyaReaves

Gittler had just begun to fill out her paperwork when she noticed blood dripping onto the blue chuck pad underneath Reaves. It was enough blood that Gittler began to investigate. First she abdominally massaged Reaves’ fundus, or the top of the uterus, and noticed that instead of being firm, it felt “boggy,” a condition known as “atony.” This caused her to do a bi-manual uterine massage in order to help the uterus begin to contract.

Procedure 2

With the uterus still atonic, or “boggy,” Gittler conducted a second aspiration of Reaves’ uterus using a 7 mm flexible cannula with which she said she removed “less than a teaspoon” of blood. That procedure took about four minutes.

Reaves’ medical records show that she left the procedure room at 1:07 p.m. and taken to recovery while Gittler continued doing abortions on an unknown number of other patients.

Soaked Pad

At 1:41 p.m., just over a half hour from when Reaves’ second aspiration was completed, the nurse noticed that her sanitary “pad was soaked,” indicating that Reaves was experiencing “excessive bleeding.”

At 2:00 p.m., the nurse noted that Reaves was passing a blood clot. She notified Gittler, who at some point evaluated Reaves.

Implausible two-chambered uterus theory

Fifty-five minutes later, at 2:55 p.m., Reaves was back in the procedure room.

At 3:02 p.m., anesthesia was administered, an ultrasound exam was done. Gittler said she was confused by what she saw on the ultrasound, which to her appeared to be a mass next to the uterus. She concluded somehow that she could be looking at a bicornuate (two-chambered) uterus, an unusual deformity that she opined might have accounted for Reaves’ abnormal bleeding.

It was more likely that the second mass was instead blood accumulating in Reaves’ abdominal cavity due what was later confirmed to be a uterine perforation. The fact that Reaves had an uncomplicated abortion in 2010 made Gittler’s two-chambered-uterus theory implausible. Gittler admitted that she never reviewed the medical record from Reaves previous abortion at Planned Parenthood, even though it was available to her and could have shared light on what Gittler referred to as Reaves confusing anatomy.

Blaming the woman

Why did Gittler favor the idea that Reaves had a deformed uterus over the more probable explanation that she had ruptured Tonya’s uterus?

“Abortionists commonly try to make complications appear to be the fault of the woman who had the abortion. It always has to be her fault. Grasping onto the deformed uterus theory put the blame on Reaves whereas a uterine perforation would put the blame on the abortionist. This is all about shifting the blame,” said Newman.

Procedure 3

Using ultrasound guidance for the first time on Reaves, Gittler suctioned the uterus again using a 7mm flexible cannula. A 20 cc clot was removed, which is a little larger in size than a tablespoon. This procedure represented Reaves’ third abortion that day at Planned Parenthood.

Gittler said that she has changed her practice and now does all second trimester abortions with ultrasound guidance, at the advice of her attorney.

Ten minutes later, 10 units of Pitocin was administered to Reaves through her IV. Pitocin is a drug that is used in hospitals to induce labor. Gittler presumably used it to help Reaves’ uterus to contract. Three minutes after that, Reaves was given a shot of Methergine, a drug that is used to control or prevent post-partum hemorrhage.

At 3:35 p.m., the nurse noted in Reaves’ chart that the bleeding had slowed, but not stopped, and her uterus remained tender.

By 3:53 p.m., the nurse noted on Reaves’ chart that her bleeding continued to be heavy. Gittler disagreed and insisted that the bleeding was light. At that time, Reaves was administered Toradol, an NSAID pain reliever used to manage moderately severe acute pain.

Decision to transport

Gittler said she spoke with Tonya and her mother and told them she wanted to transport Tonya to the hospital. She said that Tonya told her that she felt fine and did not want to go.

According to Gittler, she then contacted her medical director, Carolyn Hoke, who told her that if Reaves’ bleeding was under control, there was no need to transport her.

Portraying herself as the hero of the story, Gittler testified that she ordered someone to call an ambulance “sometime before”4:00 p.m., supposedly over the objections of Reaves and her supervisor.

A note in Reaves’ chart indicated that 911 was called and that a Chicago Fire Department ambulance responded, but Gittler indicated that the ambulance may not have been a CFD vehicle.

Documents obtained by Operation Rescue indicate that 911 was not called despite a non-medical incident at that clinic earlier in the day when an employee was instructed by a 911 dispatcher that the fastest way to get help was to call 911 instead of the 311 non-emergency number, as had been Planned Parenthood’s practice.

“Giggling” with her mom?

At 4:17 p.m. the ambulance arrived. Gittler related the following story:

When Tonya was being transferred in the ambulance chair, so she was up and alert sitting in the — they — instead of a gurney, they have the gurneys that sit up. She was with Ms. Joyce, [Reaves’ mother] and she was kind of giggling that she didn’t want to go and who would watch the car.

“Women suffering from hemorrhage are often transported in a sitting position. This is to minimize bleeding. Yet Gittler relates this as if it means that Tonya was doing great and didn’t need to lay down,” said Newman. “It’s hard to imagine that Tonya would have been giggling with her mother about not wanting to go to the hospital. That comment seemed to be a strangely inappropriate attempt to make it appear that Reaves was in good condition and spirits when she left Planned Parenthood, when it is now obvious that her condition was actually life-threatening.”

Monitoring vs. emergency

In a critically important move, Gittler contacted an emergency room resident and noted that Reaves suffered from a “boggy uterus” with post-procedure bleeding that had subsided after re-aspiration. She noted that Reaves’ uterus was then “clamping down fine,” and she was being transported for further monitoring because of confusion about the patient’s anatomy.

Gittler downplayed the seriousness Reaves condition and never mentioned the possibility of a uterine perforation to the hospital resident, even though she admitted that she was aware that uterine perforation was a possibility.

Given that information, emergency room personnel had no reason to believe that Reaves’ condition was serious, much less life-threatening.

The transcript is clear about Gittler’s awareness that she may have perforated Reaves’ uterus:

Q. Prior to the third procedure on July 20th, you couldn’t rule out a uterine perforation in Ms. Reaves. Correct?

A. I couldn’t rule it out? I couldn’t rule it out.

Q. Okay. And even up until the time Ms. Reaves left Planned Parenthood on July 20th, you couldn’t rule out the fact that she had a perforated uterus. Correct?

A. I couldn’t rule it out.

Steve Miller’s news report indicated that Reaves was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 4:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, Gittler continued to do at least two more abortions after Reaves left Planned Parenthood by ambulance.

At the hospital

Once at the hospital emergency room, it took time for the doctors there to understand the full nature of Reaves’ condition.

In an attempt to control her heavy bleeding that Gittler insisted had “subsided,” Reaves was given her fourth abortion of the day at 5:30 p.m. where retained “products of conception” were removed.

Gittler called the hospital at 7:30 that evening and spoke with an Ob/Gyn intern who told her Reaves had just gotten out of the operating room where an aspiration had removed “placental tissue.”

“It’s appalling to hear that Reaves still had tissue inside her after three previous suction procedures,” said Newman. “While an incomplete abortion can cause a patient to hemorrhage, the records are clear that Tonya continued to deteriorate even after all the tissue was removed. This was an indication that something else was seriously wrong.”

Uterine perforation discovered

Reaves then underwent a series of tests that finally uncovered the source of her problems: a uterine perforation in two places that involved the left board ligament with a possible transection of the left uterine artery. Reaves had been bleeding internally for between nine and eleven hours, depending on when her first abortion began.

At 10:12 p.m., Reaves was rushed back in to the operating room for an emergency hysterectomy, but she coded during the procedure and the surgeons were unable to resuscitate her. She was pronounced dead at 11:20 p.m. while still in the operating room.

According to the autopsy, her abdomen was filled with 1.5 liters of blood and clots. The human body holds roughly five liters of blood. Reaves bled about 30 percent of her total volume of blood into her abdomen, and that does not account for the amount of blood lost through what was likely substantial vaginal bleeding due to the retained tissue.

Planned Parenthood informed of Reaves’ death

The following day, Gittler was called by Planned Parenthood’s medical director, Carolyn Hoke in the evening and informed that Tonya Reaves had died. Hoke said she learned about it from a reporter and at first was confused about which patient the reporter meant.

Gittler told Hoke that when she had called the hospital at 7:30 p.m. the previous evening, Reaves was stable. She asked Hoke when Reaves died. Hoke, who seemed to have scant information, indicated that she believed Reaves passed between 11:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m.

Autopsy results

Gittler denied that she ever read Reaves’ autopsy report and remained evasive about any knowledge of injuries she inflicted upon Reaves.

When the autopsy was conducted, the medical examiner noted that he received the uterus in a separate container. Upon evaluation, he observed that the uterus was had a “boggy appearance,” not clamped down as Gittler told the emergency room resident. There was a 3/16-inch hole “adjacent to forcep impression marks” on the interior of the womb, which is consistent with the use of ring forceps that dismember the baby during a D & E procedure.

There was no evidence that the uterus had the two-chambered anomaly on which Gittler had attempted to blame the abortion complication.

The medical examiner diagnosed that Reaves suffered from “hemorrhage due to a cervical dilation and evacuation procedure.” The only person that did that procedure on Reaves was Mandy Gittler.

Planned Parenthood and Gittler sued
Tonya REaves PP ILl LawsuitPP LAwsuit Settlemen Tonya Reaves

On January 3, 2013, a lawsuit was filed by Alvin Jones, Jr. on behalf of Tonya Reaves surviving son, Alvin Jones III. That lawsuit precipitated Gittler deposition taken on August 22, 2013. On January 22, 2014, a petition was filed to settle the wrongful death case against Planned Parenthood.

Unfairly, there is no mention of Gittler in the settlement documents and so far a complaint filed with the Illinois Medical Licensing Board by the Thomas More Society has yielded not discipline. She appears to have gotten away scot free with the killing of Tonya Reaves.

“As long as medical boards continue to ignore complaints about abortionists who inflict injuries on women, we will only see more of these tragedies,” said Newman. “One would think that boards around the country would have learned a lesson from the Pennsylvania case of Kermit Gosnell, where the medical board turned a blind eye to complaints about him, and because of that Karnamaya Monger and a host of late-term babies needlessly died. Apparently the Illinois authorities didn’t learn a thing from that. At this point, we are left to wait and wonder who Gittler’s next victim will be, because it’s only a matter of time before she kills again.”

Planned Parenthood shows concern over woman’s death?

Posted in Abortion death, Planned Parenthood death of patient, Pro-choice Spin with tags , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2014 by saynsumthn

This post on Planed Parenthood’s FB page shows that the only time they are concerned for women dying is when they die from something other than abortion:

PP medicaid Death

_________________________________________

Think Progress a radical pro-abortion blog explains why such concern, “Charlene Dill, a 32-year-old mother of three, collapsed and died on a stranger’s floor at the end of March. She was at an appointment to try to sell a vacuum cleaner, one of the three part-time jobs that she worked to try to make ends meet for her family. Her death was a result of a documented heart condition — and it could have been prevented.

Dill was uninsured, and she went years without the care she needed to address her chronic conditions because she couldn’t afford it. Under the health reform law, which seeks to expand coverage to millions of low-income Americans, Dill wasn’t supposed to lack insurance. She was supposed to have access to a public health plan through the law’s expansion of the Medicaid program.”

Just wondering where Think Progress and Planned Parenthood showed any sympathy or call for change when this woman died:

Planned Parenthood of Illinois was sued by the family of a women who died following her so-called safe/legal abortion at a Chicago Planned Parenthood.

The abortion giant and others named in the lawsuit were ordered to pay $2,000,000.00 to the family of Tonya Reaves.

Tonya REaves PP ILl Lawsuit

Life Dynamics’ website SafeandLegal.com, details Reave’s death:

On Friday the 20th of July, 2012, 24-year-old Tonya Reaves climbed onto a table at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago for a “safe and legal” abortion. The life of her unborn baby was to be snuffed out. In a few hours, Ms. Reaves would also be closing her eyes for the final time.

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 Tonya lie there for over five hours before they sought emergency care for her. Of course, by then it was too late. She had lost approximately 30 percent of her body’s total blood volume.

It is now undeniable that Planned Parenthood saw Tonya as less important than the public relations hit they would take from her being hauled out of their facility on a stretcher. And so, for more than 5 hours, they were willing to let her bleed in order to protect their political and financial agendas.

Sorry- Tonya- you will NEVER be mentioned on any of the pro-abortion facebook pages, especially Planned Parenthood.

Abortion the heart of gender equality implies NARAL week dead woman awaits her burial

Posted in Abortion Sacred, NARAL with tags , , , , , , on April 6, 2014 by saynsumthn

NARAL is one of the largest abortion lobbying organizations in the US. THe acronym stands for National Abortion Rights Action League.

So, is it any surprise that before the next woman killed by so-called safe and legal abortion is even put in the ground, NARAL’s president, Ilyse Hogue, would say this: “One reason I am so passionate about my new job at NARAL Pro-Choice America is because I know that reproductive freedom is the heart of gender equality.”

Reproductive freedom is synonymous with abortion

Abortion - gender equality

According to another abortion group, International Planned Parenthood, gender equality is the measurable equal representation of women and men.

Perhaps IPPF and NARAL think killing babies and some women from abortion is noble equality, But, I do not. It is somewhat expected to hear silence from the pro-choice community when a woman is killed from legal abortion. But the timing they choose to make abortion a sacred blessing as I blogged about earlier this week or call it the heart of gender equality shows their utter dis-concern for human life generally and women in particular.

LakishaWilson-webOn March 2014, Lakisha Wilson, 22, a Black female died after transport from an Ohio abortion clinic to the hospital.

Operation Rescue reported earlier that it had obtained 911 records that indicated a woman had died after an abortion at Preterm. Those records stated that she was “not breathing at all” and had suffered “Cardiac or Respiratory Arrest/Death.”

LaKisha’s funeral will be held on Monday, April 7 and NARAL’s prez didn’t wait until she was in the ground before praising abortion again.

Jennifer Morbelli Funeral

On February 7, 2013 Jennifer Morbelli died of complications she suffered after a 3rd trimester abortion at a Germantown, Maryland abortion clinic. According to an autopsy report, Morbelli died from Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation “due to or as a consequence of Amniotic Fluid Embolism following Medical Termination of Pregnancy,” making it clear that the abortion was the event that led to her death.

Remember Tonya WOmen Deserve Better

In 2012, another woman, Tonya Reaves died following her legal abortion at Planned Parenthood.

When 24-year-old Tonya Reaves climbed onto a table at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago for a “safe and legal” abortion she never knew she would be closing her eyes for the final time. 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 Tonya lie there for over five hours before they sought emergency care for her. Of course, by then it was too late. She had lost approximately 30 percent of her body’s total blood volume, before she died. Her family successfully sued Planned Parenthood.

The list of dead women from legal abortion goes on and on….but don’t let that stop you, Ms. Hogue from implying that abortion is the heart of that gender equality. Don’t bother actually being concerned for women…..why pretend?

Pro-choice writer regurgitates abortion is sacred gift mantra days after woman dies

Posted in Abortion Sacred, Planned Parenthood Employee, RH Reality Blog with tags , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2014 by saynsumthn

wilson-banner

The very day that pro-lifers are reporting that another women has died believing the lie of Safe and Legal abortion, the radically pro-abortion blog, RH Reality Check is plotting how they can argue successfully for abortion. The new mantra has been decided: Child Killing is a Gift!

You heard me: Abortion is a Gift. Not just a gift a Sacred Gift.

Abortion as a gift

Blog author Valerie Tarico writes, “My friend Patricia offers a single reason for her passionate defense of reproductive care that includes abortion: Every baby should have its toes kissed. If life is precious and helping our children to flourish is one of the most precious obligations we take on in life, then being able to stop an ill-conceived gestation is a sacred gift. Whether or not we are religious, deciding whether to keep or terminate a pregnancy is a process steeped in spiritual values: responsibility, stewardship, love, honesty, compassion, freedom, balance, discernment. But how often do we hear words like these coming from pro-choice advocates?”

Well, actually Ms. Tarico, more often than you might think, especially from you.

In January – you wrote almost the exact same thing for the Huffington Post:

Former P Board Member Valerie Tarico

Tarico continues, “In developing countries, millions of real women and children have died because abortion-obsessed American Christians banned family planning conversations as a part of HIV prevention efforts. Those lost lives reveal the callous immorality of the anti-choice movement.

Now, excuse me if I pause for a moment to re-read this outrageous accusation. WE are the ones who are calloused and ignoring the deaths of women from abortion? OOPS – I left out the word Illegal= because Tarico and her pro-choice friends are eerily silent on the many women who have died recently from legalized abortion.

As mentioned earlier: A woman died THIS WEEK after her abortion on Ohio. Sorry if I missed all the OUTRAGE by the left over this woman’s death. I apologize if I some how missed all the rallies protesting these deaths by the “abortion-obsessed” pro-choice movement.

Pro-choicers need things made simplistic for them as they are terrible at facts or research, so here it is – feel free to scroll through my blog starting here where the most recent abortion death is recorded and work your way through the rest of the pages for numerous names of women killed by legal abortion. While you are there, you can leave a public note under each woman’s name showing your grief! I seriously doubt that will happen.

Tarico goes on to bemoan the alleged abortion “right to privacy” mantra, “The other side talks about murdering teeny, weeny babies and then mind-melds images of ultrasounds and Gerber babies with faded photos of later abortions. And we come back by talking about privacy?? Is that like the right to commit murder in the privacy of your own home or doctor’s office? Even apart from the dubious moral equivalence, let’s be real: In the age of Facebook and Twitter, is there a female under 25 in who gives a rat’s patooey about privacy, let alone thinks of it as a core value?

And here is the strategy Tarico plans to lay out, “If we want Americans to understand and distance themselves from the moral emptiness of the “pro-life” movement, we will have to challenge the patriarchs in their home turf, in their position as moral guides.”

Tarico guides her followers through 10 ridiculous suggestions on how to make the abortion position a winning one:

#1) No-choice advocates say: Abortion is immoral. God hates abortion.
We can say: For me, bringing a child into the world under bad circumstances is immoral. It violates my moral and spiritual values. / Whose God decides?

#2) They say: Abortion is murder. Abortion kills little babies.
We can say: A person can think and feel. My cat can feel hungry or hurt or curious or content; an embryo cannot. / Thanks to better and better pregnancy tests, over 60 percent of abortions now occur before 9 weeks’ gestation. Want to see what they actually look like?

#3) They say: A fetus is a baby. A baby is a living soul from the moment of conception.
We can say: In nature, most fertilized eggs never become babies. A fetus isbecoming a baby, grows into a baby, is a potential person, or is becoming a person.

4). They say: Liberals are to blame for abortion. Planned Parenthood is an abortion mill.
We can say: Obstructing contraceptive knowledge and access causes abortion and unwanted babies. That’s what’s immoral. We have the technology to prevent almost all of the suffering and expense caused by unintended pregnancy, but many women don’t have access to that information or technology because of the twisted moral priorities of religious and cultural conservatives. Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood have done more to prevent abortions in America than all of the choice opponents combined. The no-choice position is anti-life. It kills women. It puts faith over life.

Remember Tonya WOmen Deserve Better

There’s that KILL WOMEN thing again- excuse me Ms. Tarico – aren’t you paying attention? Women ARE dying from legal abortion – move on already!

Tarico’s laundry list of abortion propaganda continues and I will not nauseate you with much more.

Jumping to her #8 we read:

Embrace abortion as a sacred gift or blessing.

They say: Abortion is bad. An abortion is regrettable.
We can say: An ill-conceived pregnancy is bad. An unintended pregnancy is regrettable. An abortion when needed is a blessing. It is a gift, a grace, a mercy, a cause for gratitude, a new lease on life. Being able to choose when and whether to bring a child into the world enables us and our children to flourish.

Well actually Mr. Tarico, the GIFT is the child NOT the abortion. Your twisted attempt to make abortion sacred only reveals your religiously blood thirsty drive for abortion. It is illogical, immoral, unscientific, and outrageous to continue down this path again.

I suggest that you stop fixating on child sacrifice and get a job or something….but…I forgot…you already have a job, don’t you? Advocating for the largest chain of abortion clinic in the nation- Planned Parenthood.

Pro-life group claims another black woman dies at the hands of an abortionist

Cleveland, OH – Operation Rescue claims that they have confirmed the death and the identity of a patient of the Preterm abortion facility in Cleveland, Ohio, who was transported to University Hospital Case Medical Center on Friday, March 21, 2014.

According to the anti-abortion group, Lakisha Wilson, 22, a Black female, died after transport from the abortion clinic to the hospital. According to a statement released by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office:

LakishaWilson-web

Decedent was conveyed from 12000 Shaker Blvd., in Cleveland to University Hospitals Case Medical Center and arrived on 3-21-14 where she was treated, expired and was pronounced on 3-28-14.

An autopsy is being conducted and a cause of death is pending, however there is no doubt that her death was caused by the late-term abortion she received on March 21, 2014.

Operation Rescue reported earlier that it had obtained 911 records that indicated a woman had died after an abortion at Preterm. Those records stated that she was “not breathing at all” and had suffered “Cardiac or Respiratory Arrest/Death.”

Dr. Richard Ivan, a retired dentist, reportedly stood nearby when the woman was brought out from the abortion facility about 11:20 a.m. on March 21st. “I was two feet away from the gurney. That girl was dead,” he says sadly.

There was no protection over her head, no mask on her face. They were in no rush to get her out, which tells me she was beyond help. There were no lights (or siren on ambulance) going to the hospital.”

According to information gathered by Operation Rescue from those on the scene and who have been contacted by members of the woman’s family, Lakisha Wilson was in the later stages of pregnancy, and because of that was turned down by abortion clinics in Columbus and Akron.

She was said to have been brain dead at the time she arrived at the hospital, but was kept on life support for several days so that her organs could be harvested.

“We wish to express our deepest sympathies to Lakisha’s family for their devastating loss,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We have filed complaints with the Ohio Medical Board and with the Ohio Department of Health. We call on the ODH to immediately suspend Preterm’s clinic license pending a full investigation into Lakisha’s death.”

On Wednesday April 3, 2014, pro-lifers held a press conference about the death.

Members of Operation Rescue organized the protest.

Tonya Reaves LDI Brochure img406

In 2012, another black woman, Tonya Reaves died following her legal abortion at Planned Parenthood.

When 24-year-old Tonya Reaves climbed onto a table at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago for a “safe and legal” abortion she never knew she would be closing her eyes for the final time. 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 Tonya lie there for over five hours before they sought emergency care for her. Of course, by then it was too late. She had lost approximately 30 percent of her body’s total blood volume, before she died. Her family is now suing Planned Parenthood.

It was later discovered that a Planned Parenthood supporter appointed the Med Chief who performed Reaves autopsy. (Read here)

Planned Parenthood and others listed on the wrongful death lawsuit were ordered to pay $2,000,000.00 to the family of Tonya Reaves2.

MauriceStevenson

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.

Allred
Edward Allred was the owner of one of the largest chains of abortion clinics in the United States. Allred has been accused of making racists comments about blacks and hispanics.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Allred’s California facilities were also handling referrals made by Planned Parenthood.

In 1995, the abortion clinic Allred was accused of racism in the abortion-related death of a 24 year-old African American woman. It was in January of 1995, that 24 year-old African American TaTanisha Wesson went to the Family Planning Associates abortion clinic in Los Angeles, for an abortion and never came home. Her friend saw an ambulance arrive at the clinic that morning while sitting in the waiting room during the procedure.

TaTanisha ab death story

She called TaTanisha’s parents who rushed to the ER and found their beloved daughter in a coma. TaTanisha died in the hospital on February 1, 1995, leaving behind her 5 year old born son. An attorney for the family told the press that the abortion clinic gave TaTanisha too much anesthesia, that clinic staff was not present when she began to vomit, and that the abortion clinic delayed calling 911 for approx. 25 critical minutes. Her parents accused the abortionist of racism in their daughter’s death.

TaTanisha is one of many women who believed the lie that legal abortion made a “safe” abortion.
