Skip to comments.Shock: A Trip-Adviser Review Site for Abortion Clinics?
Posted on 08/12/2012 1:07:55 PM PDT by wagglebee
Under the You CANT make this stuff up category, Id like to talk about a post this week found on the webpage of The Abortioneers. Its a gathering place for abortion practitioners to compare notes, in this case pondering the importance of first impressions and what happens if the word gets round that your clinic is subpar. Thats, of course, in code.
Im not sure where the symbol/ad found at the top of the page is from but it talks about Star Ratings Matter! We learn from the script that on a 5-star rating, supposedly one half of all shoppers agree 3 stars is as low a star rating as they will accept. And that 83% of consumers base their decision to purchase an item on BOTH star ratings and written review comments.
Of course the item that is purchased here is a dead baby. Put that (to them) totally irrelevant consideration aside for a moment.
The opening paragraph reads, Can someone please come up with a Tripadvisor for abortion clinics? Who wouldnt want to rate their clinic experience? It would be cool, in an ideal world, if women felt safe enough to rate their experience."
The Abortioneers have an initial seven-point check listkind of reminds you of Jiffy Lubewhich they then elaborate on. For example, its not cool If your clinic is in a bad neighborhood, needs a paint job, and your staff arent warm and professional (maybe they answer their phone too quickly and sound apathetic) because it just adds to the nasty abortion stigma.
But On the other hand, if you have a modern, clean facility out-of-reach from hassling protesters, affordable prices, and kind staff, youre rockin it. Right?
And so forth and so on.
Bottom line: the writer concludes that if she uses an online referral to help me determine whether I want to go to a certain restaurant or not, surely it would make a difference if women would share their abortion experiences (which they currently dont).Do I want someones opinion on the abortion clinic they went to? she asks. Yes, please.
Okay. How about asking for an evaluation from the family of Tonya Reaves who died after having a second-trimester abortion in a Chicago Planned Parenthood clinic? According to documents Ms. Reaves suffered from bleeding, an incomplete abortion, and perforation.
Surely in order to produce the best Tripadvisor, The Abortioneers would want a more detailed evaluation of what happened during and immediately after the July 20 abortion.
According to WBBMs Newsradios Steve Miller, Reaves underwent a second-trimester dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortion at 11:00am.
After the abortion Reaves suffered bleeding. But a Fire Department ambulance did not take her to Northwestern Memorial Hospital until 4:30 p.m., according to Millers report.
An hour later, at 5:30, doctors performed an ultrasound, and another dilation and evacuation procedure basically, another abortion this time at Northwestern, according to Miller. This could only mean that Reaves had undergone an incomplete abortion.
Miller goes on:
Then pain and more tests, and one of those tests revealed a perforation, documents say. Then surgery at 12 minutes past 10 pm. An uncontrollable bleed was found. Reaves did not regain consciousness and was pronounced dead at 11:20 in the operating room.
No doubt The Abortioneers would give at least a couple of stars to the clinic. After all, Reavess death has been ruled an accident.
But they might want to hold off. The family of this 24-year-old mother of one has retained a lawyer, Corey Meyer, the familys lawyer, told ABC News, Were just trying to get all the facts from the incident and determine what the best course of action is.
Tip of the hat to Jill Stanek.

Good God. There’s even a section, on the right hand side, called ABORTION HUMOR!
Then they wonder why some of them get shot, every once in a while.
I hear most of the women who leave these places alive take home a few bedbugs with them. And they don’t abort ANY of their young.
