#SayHerName Black woman dead after Planned Parenthood abortion now forgotten

Well…they did it again.

Those hypocrites over at Planned Parenthood keep – shall we say “stepping in it?”

This time, the abortion giant tweeted to the hashtag #SayHerName which is exposing police violence against Black women.

Planned Parenthood police violence black women

So, in “solidarity” for concern of “Black women” the organization which was founded by a Klan speaking racist (watch Maafa21) tweeted this, “#SayHerName: We stand in #solidarity with the activists elevating police violence against black women.”

Sounds legitimate, right?

WRONG!

One would wonder that, if Planned Parenthood were concerned about the death of Black women why they allowed a 24-year-old Black woman to bleed for 5 hours inside their facility after a botched abortion before calling for emergency care.

Her name was Tonya Reaves.

TonyaReaves

According to the website SafeandLegal.com, after Tonya’s botched abortion took place, she was left to bleed for five and a half hours in the Planned Parenthood clinic without medical treatment. Furthermore, when Ms. Reaves was finally transferred to the hospital, it took several more hours for her to be treated properly, which indicates that Planned Parenthood did not provide the hospital with sufficient information regarding Ms. Reaves’ condition. The autopsy after her death revealed that Ms. Reaves had suffered perforation of the uterus.

The care or shall we say lack of care, that Planned Parenthood gave to this Black woman was so egregious that Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation were order to pay Tonya’s family $2,000,000.00 in a wrongful death settlement.

What is interesting is that Reaves’ death was ruled an accident by the same Medical Examiners Office whose top administrator was appointed by what appears to be an avid pro-abortion Planned Parenthood supporter.

Accident?

Okay – I guess when this Black woman died we should just all accept the decision by those in charge – right?

WRONG!

Enter Toni Preckwinkle

Toni-Preckwinkle-President

A month prior to Tonya’s death, County Board president, Toni Preckwinkle appointed Daryl Jackson to head the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office until a replacement could be found for Dr. Nancy Jones, who was to resign.

According to the Chicago Tribune:

    In June of 2012, After months of evaluating operations and making lower-level changes at the troubled county morgue, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle launched a major shake-up that included the departure of the two top officials at the medical examiner’s office.

    Out was Medical Examiner Nancy Jones, who will retire at the end of July, and Kimberly Jackson, the top administrator in the office. In was Daryl Jackson, a longtime state Public Health Department supervisor that Preckwinkle chose as the new administrator. And a nationwide search was launched to replace Jones.

In 2012, Preckwinkle appointed Jackson to executive director.

Toni Preckwinkle and Planned Parenthood

Curiously, the abortion giant has supported Preckwinkle in her political endeavors.

In April of 2012 Preckwinkle was a special guest at a Planned Parenthood gala.

Cook County Board President was also in attendance at Planned Parenthood’s 2010 Campaign Kickoff !

And, later in 2015 Preckwinkle attended this Planned Parenthood event sponsored by Planned Parenthood Illinois Action (PPIA) to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion on demand.

Reboot Illinois reported that Preckwinkle is a large donor to Planned Parenthood Illinois Action PAC.

When Tonya Reaves died after her July 2012 abortion, her autopsy was performed by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office which ruled her death an accident.

Tonya Reaves Medical Examiner

Doesn’t it seem odd that the person in charge of appointments for the County Medical Examiner has been a HUGE Planned Parenthood supporter, participating consistently in their events for years, and when a Black woman’s death looks suspicious, the office she oversees rules it an accident?

But – then again – we are talking about the death of a Black woman and I am sure Planned Parenthood is glad they will no longer have to #SayHerName.

Medical Examiner Hid Info Showing Planned Parenthood Killed Patient

tonyareaves5autopsy

Operation Rescue, who requested a copy of the autopsy on Ms. Reaves, indicates that it was not provided the complete autopsy report — indicating six pages were omitted that place the blame squarely on Planned Parenthood’s shoulders. The copy the pro-life group received from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office was missing the six important pages that further detailed Reaves fatal abortion injuries and noted that Planned Parenthood was where her abortion took place.

The sanitized copy sent to Operation Rescue contained no mention of Planned Parenthood. The omission was discovered when attorneys for the Thomas More Society, a pro-life legal group that also had filed an open records request for the report, compared notes with Operation Rescue.

At the time Ms. Reaves death became public, the pro-life group, Life Dynamics asked officials in Cook County to investigate Tonya’s death as “depraved indifference murder,” which they refused to do.

Coincidence?

Maybe not…

OTHER COOK COUNTY AND ILLINOIS OFFICIALS SUPPORTER PLANNED PARENTHOOD

Kimberly Foxx - cook county Planned Parenthood

As an additional point of interest, the Cook County Medical Examiner now employees the former President of the Board of Directors for Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Kimberly Foxx, who, according to her LinkedIn page, worked for the Cook County State’s Attorney Office during the time pro-lifers were calling for an investigation of Planned Parenthood.

Kimberly FOxx Planned Parenthood

In addition, Cook County Prosecutor Anita Alvarez has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood PAC according to this voting guide.

Foxx is now looking to replace Cook County Prosecutor Anita Alvarez.

MORE POLITICAL POWER SUPPORTING PLANNED PARENTHOOD:

LISA MADIGAN is the Attorney General of Illinois. According to the Chicago Tribune, Lisa Madigan became the first woman to serve as Illinois Attorney General when she was elected on Nov. 5, 2002.

In 2009, Madigan joined with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), representing the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and others in a federal lawsuit.

Madigan answered a questionnaire on the positions she supported this way:

    I am pro-choice, and my voting as State Senator record backs this up. While I was in the Illinois Senate, I supported a woman’s right to choose as recognized by Roe v. Wade. I had a 100% pro-choice voting record, including supporting legislation to provide public funding of abortion services for low-income women.

    In the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the parental notification law, it was my responsibility under the constitution to represent the defendants. When my office’s legal research showed that the law was constitutional, based on the fact that federal courts around the country have upheld parental notice laws, including laws that are more stringent than Illinois’, my office defended the law. In 2013, the Illinois Supreme Court upheld the law under the Illinois Constitution.

    In addition, working with Planned Parenthood, I have supported legislation to amend Illinois’ parental notice law.

I had a 100% pro-choice voting record, including supporting legislation to provide public funding of abortion services for low-income women.

In 2013, Madigan attended a Planned Parenthood fundraiser according to the Illinois Review.

Lisa Madigan Planned Parenthood

In 2014, Preckwinkle and Madigan attend a Planned Parenthood of Illinois Gala.

Planned Parenthood endorses Lisa Madigan

That same year, Planned Parenthood endorses the Illinois Attorney General.

In 2013, not only did Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, celebrate the 40th anniversary of legalized abortion with Planned Parenthood of Illinois but so did Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon, Representative Tom Cross (R-84), RepresentativeJan Schakowsky (D-9), Representative Bill Foster (D-11), and author Sara Paretsky.

In addition, some national political power showed up including former senior advisor to President Barack Obama David Axelrod, Senate President John Cullerton, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and former Illinois state senator, comptroller, and candidate for governor, Dawn Clark Netsch, who was honored with the Dr. Marvin Rosner Lifetime Achievement Award.

In 2014 , Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle; U.S. Reps. Jan Schakowsky, Mike Quigley, Robin Kelly, Brad Schneider and Bill Foster; Durbin; Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon; state Sens. Heather Steans, Michael Frerichs, Toi Hutchinson and Dan Kotowski; and state Reps. Barbara Flynn Currie, Scott Drury, Robyn Gable, Greg Harris, Camille Lilly, Sara Feigenholtz, Dan Williams and Dick Durbin and other notables attended Planned Parenthood’s Gala.

Planned Parenthood police violence black women

SO, to tie this all together, as Planned Parenthood expresses faux concern for Black women in their #SayHerName tweet, they have forgotten the name of a Black abortion patient which died at their hands: Tonya Reaves. And, perhaps, just perhaps they avoided a depraved indifference murder investigation because of all their political clout.

Just say’n.

Complaint filed with state after abortion death from Planned Parenthood

Posted in Abortion complication, Abortion death, Planed Parenthood abortion death, Planned Parenthood Ambulance with tags , , , , , on February 8, 2013 by saynsumthn

Today, the Pro-Life Action League filed a complaint with the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation, urging them to undertake an immediate investigation as to whether substandard medical care led to the July 2012 death of 24-year-old Tonya Reaves, shortly after she had a late term abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago. The complaint, filed by Thomas More Society, who is representing PLAL has detailed a series of concerns about inadequate and substandard care given to Ms. Reaves. A link to the complaint is available here

Planned Parenthood supporter appoints Med Chief whose office performs autopsy on black woman after abortion death

A 24 year-old black women is left to bleed to death on the table of Planned Parenthood after an abortion. That was in July of 2012. What is interesting is that the Cook County Medical Examiners Office, which declared the death an “accident” has a link to Planned Parenthood. Read on….

tonya-reaves-0722The Chicago Sun Times is reporting, The father of a young child whose mother died after a July 2012 abortion filed a wrongful death lawsuit Thursday against Planned Parenthood of Illinois and Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Tonya Reaves, 24, died July 20, 2012, at Northwestern Hospital after she began hemorrhaging at a Planned Parenthood clinic at 18 S. Michigan Ave., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. Reaves’ mother filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood in August of 2012.

An autopsy found she died of a hemorrhage following a cervical dilation and evacuation performed during an intrauterine pregnancy, according to the medical examiner’s office. Her death was ruled an accident.

The lawsuit, filed in Cook County Circuit Court, claims the clinic “improperly performed” the procedure and failed to properly care for her complications resulting in her death at the hospital.

It is the second wrongful death suit filed on behalf of Reaves’ estate. Reaves’ mother, Dorsey Johns, filed a suit in Cook County Circuit Court in August 2012.

TonyaReaves

Documents, including her autopsy report and other records show that Reaves received an incomplete Dilation and Evacuation abortion procedure at Planned Parenthood that was followed by uncontrolled bleeding. Planned Parenthood staff allowed Reaves to hemorrhage for 5½ hours before seeking emergency care. Records show that Planned Parenthood did not call 911 for an ambulance, which was the quickest way to get help for her.

The autopsy listed the manner of death as “Accident,” which would include an avoidable death from negligence and malpractice.

Operation Rescue has filed a complaint with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation seeking a full investigation and has been interviewed by a state investigator in relation to that complaint. OR has joined with other pro-life groups in calling on Cook County Illinois State’s Attorney, Anita Alvarez, to launch an investigation into the death of Tonya Reaves under the state’s “depraved indifference murder” statutes.

What is interesting is that Reaves’ death was ruled an accident by the same Medical Examiners Office whose chief was appointed by what appears to be an avid pro-abortion Planned Parenthood supporter. The family wants answers and only receives silence. A look into this issue further exposes some interesting facts.

The copy the pro-life group received from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office was missing the six important pages that further detailed Reaves fatal abortion injuries and noted that Planned Parenthood was where her abortion took place.

The sanitized copy sent to Operation Rescue contained no mention of Planned Parenthood. The omission was discovered when attorneys for the Thomas More Society, a pro-life legal group that also had filed an open records request for the report, compared notes with Operation Rescue.

According to Operation Rescue President, Troy Newman, one missing page titled “First Call Sheet”, there appears to be redacted information on the first line under “Medical History” where the circumstances surrounding Reaves death are explained. After the redaction, there is the following notation: “1100. Planned Parenthood. Suction D&E. Post Op bleed.”

The missing pages note that Reaves was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital via a Chicago Fire Department ambulance at 4:30 p.m., five and a half hours after her botched second trimester abortion left her hemorrhaging. However, there is no record that an emergency 911 call was placed by Planned Parenthood.

Also included is an anatomical diagram indicating a large abdominal incision made during an emergency hysterectomy performed by a hospital surgeon in a vain effort to save Reaves’ life as well as marks on her chest consistent with the application of defibrillator paddles. The records show that despite these efforts, Reaves could not be resuscitated.

The Planned Parenthood abortion business, which waited five hours before sending a woman who died from a botched legal abortion to the hospital, never called 911.

Documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act show that only one call to 911 was made on Friday, July 20 from the building located at 18 S. Michigan, which houses Planned Parenthood.

In addition to the death of Tonya Reaves, the Planned Parenthood of Illinois was caught with their hands in the tax payers cookie jar:

According to CRAINES, in September of 2012, Planned Parenthood of Illinois agreed to pay the state $367,000 to settle a dispute over alleged overbilling of the Medicaid program by the non-profit’s medical director.

Dr. Caroline Hoke, an obstetrician-gynecologist and the organization’s medical director since 2007, had been under threat of termination from the state Medicaid program since 2010, when the inspector general of the Department of Healthcare and Family Services sought to recover allegedly improper payments.

Dr. Hoke was the fourth-highest billing physician in the state Medicaid program in 2009-11, receiving $3.9 million, despite not receiving any payment for much of 2010 and all of 2011, according to a Crain’s analysis of Medicaid reimbursement records.

The settlement comes about a week after the mother of a Planned Parenthood patient filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the organization, alleging that negligence during an abortion contributed to her daughter’s death.

In the Medicaid case, the agency alleged that Dr. Hoke overbilled the state an estimated $430,380.02, mostly for services that were not documented, according to records in a DHFS administrative proceeding against Dr. Hoke.

The inspector general contested Dr. Hoke’s billings between 2006 and 2007, when she worked at Planned Parenthood of Illinois locations and at Erie Family Health Center. The West Side clinic separately agreed to pay the state $20,000 to settle its portion of the dispute.

With the settlement, neither Planned Parenthood of Illinois nor Erie admits any wrongdoing or responsibility for the overbilling.
