Planned Parenthood Elizabeth Fraley E Fraley Bio pic_0Elizabeth Fraley has been named president/CEO of Planned Parenthood of North Florida, coming from a Planned Parenthood office in California.

Fraley succeeds Staci Fox, who was promoted to Planned Parenthood Southeast covering the states of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, according to a Monday announcement by Kirsten Doolittle, board president of the North Florida office.

Fraley previously was an area service director for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte in California.

Prior to her California tenure, she was director of the Volunteer Women’s Medical Clinic in Knoxville, Tenn., which recently closed.

In 2001, 38 year-old Brenda Vise died, after having an abortion at the Volunteer Women’s Clinic in Knoxville Tennessee.

A lawsuit filed by her estate claims the abortion clinic did not discern that Ms. Vise was having a tubal pregnancy. It was estimated that Ms. Vise was approximately six weeks pregnant. Clinic personnel prescribed Mifeprex, also known as RU-486, commonly referred to as the “abortion pill.” After receiving the initial dose of Mifeprex at the clinic, Ms. Vise returned home and began experiencing problems.Multiple calls were placed to the clinic as her condition worsened, and in every instance Ms. Vise was advised that her symptoms were normal and routine. The clinic never suggested that Ms. Vise return to the clinic so she could be examined by a medical doctor to verify the complications were not serious. Ms Vise was finally taken to a Chattanooga hospital but it was too late to save her. Brenda Vise’s death was a tragedy.
