A twenty-four year old woman went to Planned Parenthood in Chicago for an abortion at 11:00 a.m. on July 20, 2012. 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, recently-released information reveals that 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 ER 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.
Jennifer McKenna Morbelli, of New Rochelle, New York, died Thursday as the result of fatal complications suffered during an abortion at 33 weeks at the hand of late-term abortion practitioner LeRoy Carhart.
Early Thursday morning, the woman began suffering chest pain and other discomforts, the group informed LifeNews. Her attempts to reach Carhart were unsuccessful. The woman was taken by her family from her hotel to a nearby hospital emergency room at approximately 5:00 a.m. Efforts by hospital staff to contact Carhart or get informational assistance from the abortion clinic were unsuccessful.
Operation Rescue says the abortion patient suffered massive internal bleeding into her abdominal cavity. She slipped into a Code Blue condition approximately six times before finally succumbing to her injuries at around 9:30 a.m. The case has been placed with the Medical Examiner for further investigation.
“The avoidable death of this young woman dramatically illustrates the dangers of third trimester abortions that are done outside of the safety of obstetrical standards,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-life Nation.
Newman told LifeNews, “In 2005, Carhart was also involved in the death of Christin Gilbert, who died after a third trimester abortion in Wichita, Kansas. It is time for medical boards to put an end to these horrifically dangerous and barbaric third trimester abortions. If they do not, we can only expect Carhart and his associates to send more women to the morgue.”
