Woman Dies After Planned Parenthood Botched Her Abortion, Congress to Investigate

The negligence of Planned Parenthood appears to be a contributing factor in the tragic death of 24 year old Tonya Reaves. Ms. Reaves passed away last Friday after complications from a failed abortion at an Illinois Planned Parenthood clinic. Documents released by CBS detail just how disastrously the clinic responded to her medical emergency.

At 11:00 a.m. on Friday, Reaves received a second-trimester dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortion at Planned Parenthood, located at 18 S. Michigan Ave. in Chicago. Following the abortion, Reaves began bleeding heavily and it continued at Planned Parenthood for five and a half hours before a Fire Department ambulance finally took her to Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 4:30 p.m., according to Miller.

Then, once the young woman arrived at the hospital, the reports make it appear emergency personnel had to start from scratch to figure out the extent of Reaves injuries.

Tonya Reaves underwent two procedures at the hospital, the first at 5:30 PM and second at 10:12 PM. Doctors found what they called an “uncontrollable bleed” during her second surgery. She was pronounced dead in the operating room at 11:20 PM.

Planned Parenthood’s negligence has not gone unnoticed on Capitol Hill .

Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., who launched a probe into Planned Parenthood earlier this year, is now calling for a public hearing on Capitol Hill.

"I would like to put them under oath," he told Fox News. "I would like to find out how they spend our half a billion dollars, and I would also like to explore some of the safety aspects, particularly in light of this death, of this tragedy."

Even if you take Planned Parenthood at their word when they claim that no taxpayer dollars are used for abortions, and I don’t, it is hard to justify the federal government propping up such a destructive organization. Even more baffling is Obama’s insistence that future generations be subjected to “health care choices” from a taxpayer subsidized Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood explanation to hospital: "We found this woman who'd been loitering way too long in our facility, so we brought her here."

Here's all you need to know about the soulless harpies who populate Big Abortion's clinics. Tonya Reeves lies bleeding in a Planned Parenthood clinic for five hours after it botched her abortion, and PP's response is this: "In a written statement this past Saturday, Planned Parenthood of Illinois chief executive officer Carole Brite said 'We were shocked and saddened upon learning of a tragic development at a nearby hospital.. . .'

Is Congress going to investigate the murder of her baby?

Isn’t it a crime? Or isn’t it medical malpractice?
It's both. Where I live it be "Criminal Negligence Causing Death" and would also be subject to civil action.

What’s congress have to do with it?
Congress provides them with funding, ergo PP should be accountable to Congress. If you don't want to deal with Congressional oversight, don't accept the taxpayers' money.

after complications from a failed abortion

Failed Abortion?

Does that mean the baby survived?

Is this the type of health care Obama wants for his daughters?
