But You Won’t Hear a Statement from the President About It

James M. Kushiner in this month’s Touchstone magazine (“No We Can’t”), juxtaposes the location of President Obama’s presidential victory speech in 2008, and this horrifying episode, to highlight the shameful abortion policies that President Obama has approved:

Within sight of Grant Park, on July 20, 2012, Tonya Reaves, 24, entered a Planned Parenthood Clinic on Michigan Avenue. She underwent a “dilation and extraction” (D & E) abortion. Afterwards, she started bleeding. She bled at Planned Parenthood for five and half hours before an ambulance carried her to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Reaves underwent another D & E procedure there after doctors discovered that Planned Parenthood had botched the abortion. She continued to bleed. She was taken for more surgery at 10:12 pm and pronounced dead at 11:20 pm. Chicago’s Planned Parenthood “clinics” are not regulated by the State of Illinois’ Department of Public Health. The website of the Michigan Avenue facility says that surgical abortions (including D & E) are not performed there but referred elsewhere. Reaves died from a second-trimester surgical abortion by a Planned Parenthood clinic that claims not to do them.

I’ve said it before, but I cannot recommend Touchstone more highly. It’s a must subscription for Christians, and you can read Kushiner’s whole commentary here.
