Tonya Reaves (pictured right), who was only 24, died Friday, July 20, 2012 on the operating table of a Chicago Planned Parenthood. According to a local CBS television station, Tonya died of a hemorrhage due to an abortion.
It is so heartbreaking and tragic that this young woman believed the continuous lies of Planned Parenthood who state that abortions are perfectly safe.
The truth is that abortion is not safe for the women who experience physical and emotional problems for years and years after having an abortion -- abortion is not safe for the 4,500 innocent babies that are brutally slaughtered each and every day in America, and abortion is most certainly not safe for the young women who die at the hand of an abortionist.
Incredibly, Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist named Margaret Sanger who made it her life's work to limit the growth of the black population in America. She felt so strongly about this she initiated the "Negro Project" in 1939. The objective of the "project" was to infiltrate the black community by presenting birth control, sterilization and abortion as health options for black women.
To this day, Planned Parenthood's billion dollars a year, genocidal formula continues to kill women and children -- with Black women and children being disproportionately targeted for abortion. This is no accident -- it's just business -- a very cruel and bloody business!
I am so sad and angry about the death of this beautiful black girl and her baby. Tonya Reaves and her child should not have died!
On behalf of the National Black Pro-Life Union, my heart goes out to the family and friends of Tonya Reaves and I offer my prayers for the mother and the child. I am praying that you will find comfort in the arms of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ in this difficult time. We are
so very sorry for your loss.
