(CNSNews.com) - On Feb. 7, Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation agreed to pay the family of Tonya Reaves, $2 million after she died from hemorrhaging from a botched abortion in 2012. Reaves received the abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic on 18 S. Michigan Ave in Chicago, Ill.
“Planned Parenthood is a billion dollar a year baby killing business,” Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, told CNSNews.com. “The money awarded to Tonya’s son is a pittance in comparison to what they are worth – $2 million dollars is just a tiny drop in a bottomless bucket. The truly sad thing is that no one can put a dollar value on the life a human being - a life snuffed out way too soon.”
Reaves, a healthy 24-year-old black woman, was 16 weeks pregnant at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 20, 2012, the time of her abortion.
