Tonya Reaves (pictured) died Friday night, after having a second trimester abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago, according to CBS Chicago. Now her twin sister and other family members want answers as to what happened during the abortion procedure that went awry.
An autopsy revealed that the 24-year-old woman died from a hemorrhage after a dilation and evacuation (D&E) procedure, which is typically done for women in their second trimester (second 12 weeks) of pregnancy. A D&E ends a pregnancy and involves the dilation of the cervix and surgical removal of the fetal tissue from inside the uterus.

“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,” Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation, told Life News in a statement Sunday. “Our heartfelt prayers go out to the victim’s family at this time of tragic loss.”
For example, the North Carolina legislature overrode a veto by their governor in a new attempt to defund Planned Parenthood. In Arizona, a new state law has cut off public funding to the organization because it is an abortion provider. Earlier this month, Alliance Defending Freedom (formerly Alliance Defense Fund) filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood, alleging that the group repeatedly filed false claims with Medicaid and collected $28 million.
