A whistleblower case against Planned Parenthood could result in up to $5.5 billion in False Claims Act damages and penalties, and a years-long court fight over a new South Dakota law means Planned Parenthood abortionists there must warn women of the increased risk of suicide if they have an abortion.
Now, pro-life leader Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics is calling on State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez of Cook County, Ill., for an immediate investigation of Planned Parenthood for what he alleges is the murder of 24-year-old Tonya Reaves.
Crutcher cites the Illinois “depraved indifference murder” statute as being more than enough to warrant a thorough inspection of the death of the African American woman – to determine if criminal charges can be pressed against Planned Parenthood.
“If it can be shown that this young woman might have survived if emergency treatment had not been withheld from her for more than five hours, then this was not an accident and it was not medical malpractice,” Crutcher contends. “It was a homicide, and those responsible should be on the evening news wearing handcuffs and leg irons.”
On July 20, Reaves was left for several hours at the abortion giant’s Chicago facility after a staff abortionist ripped a hole in her uterus. An ambulance finally was summoned, but she died from extensive hemorrhaging.
She left behind a 1-year-old son.
“It is clear that Tonya’s life was less important to these people than the public relations hit they might take from her being hauled out of their facility on a stretcher,” Crutcher said. “And so they just watched her bleed out.”
To put the situation into perspective, Crutcher draws a similar example to illustrate Planned Parenthood’s culpability in the death of Reaves.
“Imagine that the Chicago police shoot a 24-year-old man and leave him lying in the street without calling an ambulance,” Crutcher visualized. “If that young man bleeds to death a few hours later, the public would be demanding that charges be brought against the officers involved whether the shooting was justified or not. And rightly so. Well, that certainly appears to mirror what happened here.”
Crutcher highlighted the hypocrisy of a couple of society’s black leaders, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who implored Americans several months ago to demand answers and a full investigation into the killing of a black man by a white male.
“These guys were willing to move heaven and earth to get justice for Trayvon Martin, but they write off Tonya Reeves like she never existed,” Crutcher argues. “Someone needs to ask these two why they think Trayvon’s life counts more than Tonya’s. Is it because she was killed by a group of people they happen to like?”
President Obama also highlighted the Trayvon Martin case, saying if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. But he remained silent over Tonya’s death. In fact, Obama criticized likely GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney for fighting to defund Planned Parenthood.
The National Black Pro-life Coalition also is seeking to hold Planned Parenthood accountable for Reave’s death.
“At a minimum, Planned Parenthood was criminally negligent when they left Tonya bleeding in their facility for more than five hours,” said Walter B. Hoye, who serves as president and founder of the Issues4Life Foundation. ” Planned Parenthood’s lack of action demonstrates a depraved indifference for the life of this young woman. Planned Parenthood must be held accountable for the death of Tonya Reaves.”
And NBPC members also recognize that the unnecessary death of Reaves represents not only an attack on women and their unborn children, but on African Americans in general, who account for 37 percent of abortion deaths each year, even though they represent only 12 percent of the U.S. population, pro-life advocates said.
“Surely the African-American community will wake up and stop giving Planned Parenthood a pass,” said Rev. Arnold Culbreath, the director of Urban Outreach for Protecting Black Life. “Too many of our women and children have been butchered at their hands.”
The organization notes that the No. 1 cause of death for black Americans in the U.S. is abortion.
“We pray this tragedy awakens the collective conscience of black America to a
