Planned Parenthood, Chicago
Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised that an organization whose primary business is the slaughter of human life before birth would also be calloused to human life after birth.
But facts regarding the tragic death of Tonya Reaves in Chicago, Illinois have left me horrified about the heartlessness with which Planned Parenthood can treat even their paying clients.
The twenty-four year old woman went to Planned Parenthood in Chicago for an abortion at 11:00 a.m.
By 11:00 p.m., she was pronounced dead.
According to their website, this Planned Parenthood location doesn't perform surgical abortions. Yet somehow, Tonya Reaves was given an incomplete surgical abortion that perforated her uterus.
And when it was discovered that this young woman was hemorrhaging, what did this abortion mill's "caring" staff do? Nothing!
Tonya Reaves was left to hemorrhage on her own in a recovery room . . . for over five hours.
As if that wasn't bad enough, when someone at Planned Parenthood finally did decide to take the bleeding woman to the emergency room, they simply dropped her off with no one to care for her.
She was abandoned at the emergency room with no one from the clinic around to give instructions to the staff as they scrambled to discover what was wrong with Reaves.
It wasn't until later that they discovered the severe internal bleeding. By then, it was too late.
Despite the best efforts of the hospital staff, Tonya Reaves died.
So the next time you see the media talk about the "war on women" and falsely claim that Planned Parenthood fights for women, remember Tonya Reaves and the millions of innocent unborn babies they have put to death.
