The Planned Parenthood abortion business has been forced to pay a $2 million settlement to the family of a black woman it killed in a botched legal abortion in 2012.
Walter Hoye, a black pro-life leader who has closely followed the case, obtained a copy of the court order awarding the settlement. The settlement document indicates Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation must pay her son Alvin Jones III, who was one at the time of Reaves’ death from the botched legal abortion.
He told LifeNews today that the settlement is an acknowledgement on Planned Parenthood’s part that it took Reaves’ life, but he said he’s disappointed the abortion giant won’t be held accountable further.
“In my opinion, Planned Parenthood is guilty of criminal negligence, depraved indifference, and gross medical incompetence,” Hoye said. “Now that the case is settled, we will never know how a jury would have reacted.”
“Finally, what happens to Planned Parenthood’s late term abortionist Mandy Gittler and their professionally trained staff operating out of their modern downtown Chicago facilities?” Hoye asked.The payouts of the settlement do not begin until Tonya’s son turns eighteen (18) in 2029.
Tonya Reaves, a 24-year old woman, died from three major complications during a botched second-trimester abortion suffered at a Chicago area Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on July 20, 2012.
