After reviewing the autopsy report of a Chicago woman, Operation
Rescue concludes that her death was the result of a botched
Tonya Reaves went to a Chicago Planned
Parenthood for the procedure and died hours later. Operation
Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger tells OneNewsNow the
autopsy reveals that the surgical abortion was done when
Reaves was 16 weeks along and that she died from
"What we also determined
was that all of those complications were survivable, if she had
received emergency care in a timely manner," the pro-lifer notes.
"Instead, Planned Parenthood let her hemorrhage in the abortion
clinic for five and a half hours before getting her help."
Clinic workers then shared no information with emergency room
physicians, forcing them to solve the puzzle before doing a
hysterectomy. But it was too late. Reaves had a perforated uterus
and possibly a severed artery.
"We are going to file a complaint with the medical board in
Illinois against Carolyn Hoke, who is the medical director for
Planned Parenthood," Sullenger reports. "We believe she was the
abortionist who was responsible for Tonya's botched abortion."
The pro-life group will also seek an investigation on the basis
of alleged criminal neglect. This particular Planned Parenthood
does not advertise for surgical abortions, so Sullenger adds that
there is a question about whether it is properly equipped to
perform those procedures or handle complications.
