Skip to comments.The Latest Planned Parenthood Scandal The Media is Ignoring
Posted on 02/14/2014 12:24:25 PM PST by Kaslin
The Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation are paying out almost $2 million in a wrongful death lawsuit. Thats right, the pro-abortion organization constantly heralded by pro-choice politicians, liberal feminists and even our president, is responsible for a patients death.
The details are disturbing:
On July 20, 2012, 24-year-old Tonya Reaves, pictured right, died after a late-term abortion at Planned Parenthoods Loop Health Center from uncontrolled bleeding, according to court documents.
Other reports have implicated a 5-plus hour delay by the Michigan Avenue PP in getting Reaves to Northwestern and more delays in getting treatment there. At the hospital, Reaves was allegedly found to be suffering from an incomplete abortion and perforated uterus.
Reaves son is now 3 years old and will receive $1,479,571.39 after attorneys get their cut.
From a journalistic perspective, this would be an enticing story for any news outlet. Yet, a quick Google search of Planned Parenthood wrongful death brings up no relevant headlines from the major news networks ABC, CBS or NBC - a lack of coverage that may only be explained by political motives.
Pro-life blogger Jill Stanek pens a brilliant point:
Were this a settlement to a family whose loved one died because a hospital refused her an abortion, it would be broadcast everywhere.
But, considering how long it took them to finally report the gruesome details of abortionist Kermit Gosnells House of Horrors, maybe we can expect this to reach the printing presses in Spring 2015.
Thanks for this. Watch the news 24/7 and had heard nothing of it.
Apparently Planned Parenthood had a two-for-one special.
Wendy Davis’ temper tantrum in Texas was to protest against protecting the victims of botched abortions.
Feminazis don’t want safer abortions. They want fewer regulations.
I feel sorry for the boy who will grow up with the certain knowledge that his own mother tried to have him killed.
Heck of a thing for someone to deal with.
No one knows if anyone will tell him how his mother died, and it would be cruel to tell him
She looks awfully old for a 24 year old....................
You have to go all the way back to the Newsbusters web page this story is taken from to get the actual “pictured right” photo of the deceased - that’s three links back. The woman pictured here isn’t her. I was confused as well - so I followed the links between pages to get to the woman’s actual picture.
The son who will receive the money for his mother’s wrongful death is 3 years old, meaning he was born 2011, and so cannot have been aborted by his mother in 2012-the abortion she had killed both her and the child she was pregnant with. I really hope the little boy is not told why his mother is dead until he is of a reasonable age...
Thank you for the clarification.
I just tend to be a bit pedantic at times-I had not heard about this lawsuit...
I’ve never understood what would compel a woman-especially a woman who already has given birth to a child-to actually participate in the infanticide of her unborn offspring-even if she is selfish enough to ignore the right of the child to life, she must realize that the further along in pregnancy she is, the greater the risk of her own death from such a procedure. She knows how birth happens-a rough go even in a clean, safe environment attended by an MD or a nurse-midwife and supportive family, so how risky does she think a forced, full-on premature almost-birth in dubious surroundings is likely to be?
The attempted murderer received justice. Hope her kid spits on her grave.
