Planned Parenthood of Illinois offered condolences Sunday to the family of a 24-year-old Chicago woman who died after having an abortion at one of its clinics. Tonya Reaves died Friday after she began to bleed heavily, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Her death was ruled an accident. Authorities didn’t say when she had the procedure.
July 25, 2012 – Rep. Cliff Stearns, Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, has an ongoing investigation of Planned Parenthood, which receives over $1 million a day in public funds. Stearns’ investigation is the first time that Planned Parenthood has ever been held accountable for its use of taxpayer dollars.
