Woman's death saddens, shocks Planned Parenthood

July 22, 2012 (CHICAGO)

On Friday, Tonya Reaves underwent the procedure at a clinic on S. Michigan Ave. and began to hemorrhage.

Her death has been ruled an accident.

The president of Planned Parenthood of Illinois says that while legal abortion services in the United States have a very high safety record, a tragedy such as this is devastating and the agency offers its deepest sympathies to Reaves' loved ones.
