Tonya Reaves was a healthy 24-year-old African-American woman. Sixteen weeks pregnant, she had an abortion performed on July 20, 2012 at Chicago's Planned Parenthood clinic on South Michigan Avenue. There were complications - and Reaves died on the operating table. Planned Parenthood has now paid out $2 million to Reaves' family.
Tonya Reaves of Chicago was a healthy 24-year-old African-American woman. Sixteen weeks pregnant, she had an abortion performed at Planned Parenthood clinic -- and died a slow, painful death.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "Planned Parenthood is a billion dollar a year baby killing business," Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, told CNSNews.com. "The money awarded to Tonya's son is a pittance in comparison to what they are worth - $2 million dollars is just a tiny drop in a bottomless bucket. The truly sad thing is that no one can put a dollar value on the life a human being - a life snuffed out way too soon."
Reaves' death, according to the autopsy report, was due to "hemorrhage resulting from cervical dilation and evacuation due to an intrauterine pregnancy."

The report shows that she suffered a 3/16 inch perforation of the uterus from forceps, which is a tool used during the D&E abortion procedure to dismember the fetus. She also had "extensive" perforation of her broad uterine ligament.
Reaves then bled for five and a half hours without medical treatment. Phone records proved that the Planned Parenthood location where Reaves received her abortion never called 911 on Reaves' behalf -- even after five and a half hours had elapsed.
A Fire Department ambulance arrived later that afternoon and transported Reaves to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. There, it took several hours for her to receive proper treatment. "Reports make it appear emergency personnel had to start from scratch to figure out the extent of Reaves' injuries," LifeNews reported.
Even worse, hospital reports that after Reaves arrived at the hospital, she had another D&E procedure or a second abortion but continued to experience problems and pain. Given an ultrasound, the hospital discovered her uterine perforation. Taken into surgery, an "uncontrollable bleed was discovered," hospital documents say.
Reaves' son, Alvin Jones III, was awarded a $2 million settlement in this case.
"Ms. Reaves' tragic death demonstrates the dire need for increased inspection and regulation of Illinois abortion clinics," Peter Breen, vice president and senior counsel for the Thomas More Society says. "Abortion clinics in this state are not held to the same standards as other outpatient surgical facilities, despite the fact that the average clinic performs hundreds of invasive surgeries each year."
