Pro-Life Groups Call for Murder Investigation in Planned Parenthood Abortion Death
Operation Rescue releases a video illustrating the timeline leading to Tonya Reaves Death
Operation Rescue joins Mr. Crutcher in calling on Cook County Illinois State's Attorney, Anita Alvarez, to immediately launch an investigation into the death of Tonya Reaves under the state's "depraved indifference murder" statutes.
Planned Parenthood waited over 5 hours to call for emergency assistance after Reaves suffered uncontrolled bleeding after her abortion at the Loop Health Center Planned Parenthood office on Michigan Avenue. She died later that day at a local hospital.
"If it can be found that Ms. Reaves would have survived if paramedics had been called earlier, then Planned Parenthood could be criminally culpable," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation.
Operation Rescue has released a short video illustrating the timeline that lead to Reaves death as reported by Steve Miller of News Radio WBBM.
