In April of this year, 24 year old Tonya Reaves, mother of a year old son entered the Loop Health Center Planned Parenthood clinic in Chicago with the intention of aborting her unborn child. When all was said and done, not only was Tonya’s unborn child dead but was so was she, leaving her infant son without a mother.
Cheryl Sullenger, spokesperson for Operation Rescue has revealed that the official autopsy states that Tonya died as a direct result of the surgical abortion procedure she was undergoing. At the time of the abortion, Tonya was 16 weeks into her pregnancy, placing her in the second trimester.
More horrifying yet is that Sullenger learned that Tonya lay hemorrhaging in the Planned Parenthood clinic for five and a half hours before they decided to get help. When Tonya did arrive at a hospital emergency room, none of the Planned Parenthood staff provided any information on what had happened. By the time they discovered what had happened and what needed to be done to repair her perforated uterus and possible torn artery, Tonya was dead.
In the past two years, there have been at least 14 documented cases of abortions resulting in serious medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. In the case of Tonya Reaves, the seriousness of the medical emergency resulted in her death.
Live Action Advocate, a pro-life organization launched an undercover investigation to find out what Planned Parenthood was telling prospective clients about the safety or dangers of having an abortion at their clinics. Lila Rose of Live Action Advocate said:
“As President Obama campaigns for women voters, one of his top donors and champions, Planned Parenthood, is deceiving millions of American women about the services they provide, their history of abuse cover up, their radical abortion agenda, and just this past July, their unsafe and abusive practices that led to the death of Tonya Reaves, a 24-year-old Chicago woman.”
To find out the degree of deception and lies purported by Planned Parenthood, they called the clinic where Tonya Reaves was killed and were told that it is a safe procedure and that no one has ever been hurt at their clinic. Listen to the calls they placed to that clinic and to several others:
Rose went on to say:
“Our investigation exposes not only how unsafe Planned Parenthood clinics can be for women, but also how dishonest and untrustworthy Planned Parenthood is to the very women it claims to defend. How shameful that two months after their clinic botched an abortion that took the life of 24-year old Tonya Reaves and her pre-born baby, Planned Parenthood lies to the public and pretends nothing happened. When it comes to the lethal dangers of its billion-dollar abortion business, no lie is too audacious for Planned Parenthood.”
“Planned Parenthood continues to engage practices that hurt women and young girls, all while billing themselves as the guardians of women’s health. Our investigation proves that Planned Parenthood has little regard for the safety concerns of its ‘patients’ and continues to lie and mislead the public about the dangers of abortion.”
In reality, Planned Parenthood should be required to tell everyone who asks that at least one person is killed during every abortion procedure. They should also be told that abortions, like any other surgical procedure can result in serious bodily injury up to and including death.
Is it any wonder that Planned Parenthood continues to lie and deceive women when one of their most ardent supporters, President Barack Obama is also a champion liar and deceiver? In fact, the only one I know that is better at lying and deceiving than Barack Obama is Satan himself, who is referred to in Scripture as the Deceiver (Rev. 12:9). You know what they about birds of a feather flocking together.
Obama, Planned Parenthood and Satan are birds of a feather when it comes to destroying lives and family values. They care nothing for the sanctify of life or the real health of women. The only thing they care about is power, money and pushing their sinful and perverted ways on everyone else.
