Chicago abortion death justifiably gets national attention

The victim, Tonya Reaves, is ‘the real face of the war on women’

She died from a botched abortion, but Planned Parenthood didn't bother to immediately call paramedics.  Live Action founder Lila Rose  describes the outrageous warping of the meaning of the liberals use of the "War on Women."

Rose told a large and receptive crowd at the Omni Shoreham hotel on Saturday when they think of the disastrous effects of abortion policy, they should not think of Sandra Fluke but 24-year-old Tonya Reaves. An autopsy confirmed Reaves died from a botched abortion after bleeding on an abortion table for five-and-a-half hours.

Rose noted that doctors did not call 911 until well after the damage of a punctured uterus became obvious. “Planned Parenthood, as you may know, is very careful about their image,” she said. “They’re very good at PR, and they’re very good at dismantling other organizations, e.g., Komen.”

“Tonya left behind her one-year-old son, Alvin, and a grieving mother who is now suing Planned Parenthood for their negligence,” she said.
