Tonya Reaves, Planned Parenthood and the art of downplaying a ‘tragedy’

As reported Tuesday by ABC News, the family of 24-year-old Tonya Reaves – the Chicago woman who died after hemorrhaging during an abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic — has hired a lawyer to help them decide whether to take legal action.

“We’re just trying to get all the facts from the incident and determine what the best course of action is,” Corey Meyer, the family’s lawyer, said. “We’re still getting information.”

As reported Sunday by Fox News, Florida Republican Rep. Cliff Stearns and the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List have called for congressional oversight in the wake of Reaves’ death.

Apparently, when it comes to reporting abortion statistics – specifically in Chicago — much is overlooked.
