Planned Parenthood Pays $2M to Hide Wrongful Death

In the case of Tonya Reaves and her unborn child who both died during an abortion, Planned Parenthood, et. al. have settled the lawsuit brought by Reaves' family by paying $2 million in order to avoid any further legal proceedings that would air the gory details.
“In my opinion, Planned Parenthood is guilty of criminal negligence, depraved indifference, and gross medical incompetence. Now that the case is settled, we will never know how a jury would have reacted.”

Walter Hoye, a black pro-life leader who has closely followed the case, obtained a copy of the court order awarding the settlement. The settlement document indicates Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation must pay her son Alvin Jones III, who was one at the time of Reaves’ death from the botched legal abortion.

He told LifeNews today that the settlement is an acknowledgement on Planned Parenthood’s part that it took Reaves’ life, but he said he’s disappointed the abortion giant won’t be held accountable further.

Operation Rescue plans to file a complaint with the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation against abortionist Carolyn Hoke, who is believed to have been responsible for Reaves’ abortion. Hoke serves as the Medical Director for Planned Parenthood. One week after Reaves’ family sued Planned Parenthood of Illinois for killing Reaves, it agreed to pay the state $367,000 to settle a case against Hoke involving fraudulent over-billing of Medicaid.

From "Planned Parenthood $2 Million Settlement for Killing Woman in Abortion Called 'Hush Money'" by Tom Ciesielka, 2/7/14

In February of 2013, the Thomas More Society filed a complaint with the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation (“IDPR”) requesting an investigation into the Chicago “Loop Health Center” of Planned Parenthood, which was responsible for Ms. Reaves’ botched abortion. No known action has been taken by the IDPR to follow up on the complaint.

In response to the settlement, Peter Breen, vice president and senior counsel of the Thomas More Society, said . . . “Ms. Reaves’ tragic death demonstrates the dire need for increased inspection and regulation of Illinois abortion clinics.”

“Two million dollars is basically chump change for Planned Parenthood,” said Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who now helps abortion facility employees leave the industry. “My former affiliate alone has $20 million sitting in their endowment.”

Michael New, a contributor to National Review, asked, “How much money have they spent covering up other misconduct?”

Another Illinois abortion facility has evaded $36,000 in fines levied by the state authorities for its shoddy conditions by closing down, then reopening under another name.
