Woman Dead After Second-Trimester Abortion At Chicago Planned Parenthood

Abortion Protestor SC Woman Dead After Second Trimester Abortion at Chicago Planned Parenthood

Chicago, IL – A CBS news affiliate in Chicago is reporting that a 24-year old woman died Friday, July 20, 2012, after receiving an abortion from a Planned Parenthood clinic located at 18 S. Michigan Ave. in Chicago, Illinois.

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 advertizes abortions up to 18 weeks.

“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 Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “Our heartfelt prayers go out to the victim’s family at this time of tragic loss.”

This incident follows a report published in the Chicago Tribune in June, 2011, that took to task abortionists in Illinois for failing to report abortion complications and exposed the fact that some abortionists 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.

    When will women realize that Planned Parenthood has no more respect for their lives than they do for the child in the womans womb that they are being paid to kill. So two deaths occur, so what! Has any abortionist been liable for murder of the woman who came for the abortion due to their carelessness??? Not that I know of. It is just plain a place sanctioned for killing. Oops, too bad!!

    How's that 'freedom of choice' working out for her now? Pray for her family that lost her too soon.

  3. "Planned Parenthood 'should' be held accountable. How about: Planned Parenthood WILL be held accountable! We just can't get past this notion of "beating around the bush", can we.

  4. Why isn't Obama closing the abortion clinics? He closed off shore drilling after one disaster. Hypocrit.
