Oxymoron: safe abortion. Chicago newspaper details unreported deaths and thousands injured by procedure

From LifeNews:

The Chicago Tribune newspaper has released the details of a new investigative report revealing the number of abortions in the state has been massively underreported. Those numbers include six women who have died from botched abortions and 4,000 who were injured. …

“For example, in 2002, after an area woman’s uterus was torn in an abortion she began hemorrhaging, went into cardiac shock and was hospitalized for three weeks…a mother of three experienced seizure symptoms and slipped into a coma following her abortion at a city clinic. And in 2009, a teenage girl suffered respiratory and cardiac arrest and died immediately following her abortion in a northern suburb, according to court records,” the Tribune reported. (Emphasis added.)

“Others suffered anesthesia-related problems, hemorrhaging and infections, according to the suits,” it indicated.

Maurice Stevenson, who lost his wife to a lethal infection her 2002 abortion at a Planned Parenthood center in Chicago brought on, told the Tribune he is upset to learn of the newspapers’ discoveries, saying, “It’s outrageous. These procedures, complications and deaths should be public record.” (Emphasis added.)

The Tribune said abortion business refused to discuss the abortion deaths.

“Planned Parenthood could not confirm for the Tribune whether it had reported the 2002 death of Stevenson’s wife, only that it had reported the 2008 death of another patient. The organization said it had no reason to believe the 2002 death was not reported but that the records were in storage,” the Tribune reported.
