    Woman Dies After Second-Trimester Abortion at Planned Parenthood

    Woman Dies After Second-Trimester Abortion at Planned Parenthood

    A young woman has died after having a second-trimester abortion at a Chicago-area Planned Parenthood clinic. Tonya Reaves, 24, died late Friday night, according to a local CBS television station, of hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, according to the medical examiner’s office following an autopsy after the abortion that claimed her life.

    CBS Chicago said Reaves died after the abortion she had at 18 S. Michigan Avenue Planned Parenthood facility. The woman was transported from the Loop Health Center Planned Parenthood abortion clinic to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:20 P.M.

    An autopsy conducted Saturday determined that she died from hemorrhage following a Dilation and Evacuation abortion. The D&E abortion method is one employed in pregnancies that have advanced beyond the first trimester. In involves opening the cervix and removing the pre-born baby by dismembering him or her. The Loop Health Center Planned Parenthood advertises abortions up to 18 weeks.

    Tonya’s twin sister Toni was devastated by the news, telling the television station, “We were born the same day. She was my other half.”

    “It happened so fast. She was just fine one day and then the next day she was gone. We’re just trying to figure out what happened… what happened,” she said.

    Reaves’ sister indicated Tonya was engaged to be married and had another son, who had just enjoyed his first birthday.

    Troy Newman, the head of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation, told LifeNews he is saddened by Reaves unnecessary death.

    “Abortion deaths like this are completely avoidable. When a woman bleeds to death after an abortion, it is usually an indication of error on the part of the abortionist coupled with a delay in calling for emergency assistance. Planned Parenthood should be held accountable,” said Newman. “Our heartfelt prayers go out to the victim’s family at this time of tragic loss.”

    Newman said the abortion death follows a recent expose’ published in the Chicago Tribune in June, 2011, that took to task abortion facilities in the state failing to report abortion complications and exposed the fact that some abortion practitioners did not report complications at all, in violation of the law. At that time, Illinois officials made no attempt to enforce abortion laws in that state.

    Newman said that, while the name of the abortion practitioner in this case is likely unknown, Planned Parenthood’s most recent 990 Tax Forms list abortionist Caroline M. Hoke as its Medical Director.

    In fact, Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO Carole Brite, in a written statement the television station obtained, refused to give further details, saying, “We do not publicly discuss private patient matters and we follow HIPAA laws that forbid the disclosure of patient information.”

    Newman called on the Obama administration to pull taxpayer funding from the Planned Parenthood abortion business because of the death.

    “In light of this tragedy, which is yet another in a long list of Planned Parenthood abuses, we call on President Obama to immediately withdraw all Federal funding and personal support from Planned Parenthood,” said Newman. “Friday’s death is yet another reason why men and women of conscience across this nation cannot and will not comply with the forced funding of abortion and its intentional violation of religious liberties.”

    Pregnant and engaged [presumably to the man who impregnated her] and she aborts the kid? Sorry, but no matter what your stance on abortion, how do you justify this? We have to presume that the male wasn't prepared to be a responsible father. Why is she marrying the SOB?

    Guidelines need to be updated - sorry but you can't lollygag around and decide this far along to abort. Realize also, the more clinics are closed, the longer women have to wait - wrong thing to do,

    Women need to be educated about what is available and time is of the essence - current laws are too lax. Women have the ultimate decision, it is their bodies and no man has a right to interfere as long as early intervention is the course followed. With 7 billion people in the world and growing tremendously daily, only fools would prohibit early intervention methods.

    We have a morning after pill, we have a menstrual extraction performed 10 days after missed menses. 6-8 weeks should be the time limit unless a mother's life or an abnormal fetus is discovered. No if ands or buts ladies.

    Another method for women is coming available.....but morning after pill and 10day missed menses extraction are a better choice. An information campaign needs to be circulated to females, avoiding all the later term problems and ethical issues.

    FDA Eases Rules for Abortion Pill, Making Access Simpler

    Wednesday, 30 Mar 2016 08:25 PM

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration simplified the regulations for using pills to induce an abortion, making the procedure more easily available to American women even as several states consider efforts to curtail the practice.

    The medication, known as Mifeprex, now can be taken by women who are as much as 10 weeks pregnant, up from 7 weeks, according to a new label posted on the agency’s website. The dose also was cut by two-thirds to 200 milligrams, reducing the risk of side effects.

    The agency eliminated a requirement that women must take a second drug in their provider’s office, instead allowing them to take it at home. They’re still required to have an in-person follow-up appointment a week or two after taking the drug, known chemically as mifepristone, to ensure the pregnancy was terminated. The changes will make medical abortions more effective, less expensive and more widely available, particularly in poor and rural areas, proponents of the change said.

    “The updated FDA-approved regimen for mifepristone reflects the current available scientific evidence and best practices,” said Mark DeFrancesco, president of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. “Extending approved use of mifepristone through 70 days gestation is proven to be safe and effective, and will give women more time to make the decision that is right for them.”

    Restricting Access

    The changes come as several states, including Texas and North Dakota, have cracked down on health-care providers who prescribe the drugs needed for a medical abortion and proposed other changes that would make the procedures more difficult to get. More than 200 abortion restrictions have been passed nationwide since a Republican-led state legislative push began in 2011.

    The drug, initially known as RU-486, was first approved in September 2000 after a seven-year effort by the Clinton administration to make the pill available in the U.S. It’s sold by Danco Laboratories LLC, a closely held company that licensed the medicine from the Population Council, a New York-based contraception research group.

    Abortion Opponents
    The FDA’s decision was denounced by abortion opponents, who said the move was unlikely to change abortion rates, though it would make the procedure more profitable. At least eight women have died after using mifepristol, said Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League.

    “Medical abortion is billed by the abortion industry as safe and easy, but typically involves excruciating cramps and excessive bleeding, sometimes for days, and all while a woman is on her own,” Scheidler said. “With this deplorable decision, the FDA has abdicated its responsibility to safeguard women’s health and defend human life.”
    Texas, North Dakota and Ohio require that women take the medicine according to the approved label, which until now mandated three office visits and a high dose of the drug, said Susan Wood, executive director of the Jacobs Institute of Women’s Health Services at George Washington University. The original label was based on studies performed two decades ago, with recent research showing less medicine is necessary, she said.

    ‘Fewer Barriers’
    “With this updated label, women in states that have passed laws requiring providers to follow the FDA-approved label now face fewer barriers to a medical abortion,” Wood said.

    The new label follows recommendations by Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Family Planning.
    An abortion done with medication is safe 99 percent of the time and successfully ends a pregnancy 98 percent of the time, said Raegan McDonald-Mosley, chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood.

    “This is another affirmation from the FDA that medication abortion is a safe and effective option to end an early pregnancy,” McDonald-Mosley said.

    Mifeprex blocks progesterone receptors, cutting off the body’s access to the hormone that’s needed to maintain a pregnancy. A single dose of the drug, followed by another medicine known as misoprostol taken a day or two later, causes a miscarriage. It’s different than the morning-after pill, taken immediately after unprotected sex, which prevents pregnancy rather than ends it.
