‘Women of color are the ones who end up on slabs in morgue’


Lakisha Wilson traveled to the Preterm Abortion Clinic in Cleveland on March 21, 2014, to end her unborn child’s life.

But she ended up losing far more than her unwanted baby.

Wilson’s abortion provider did not properly monitor the 22-year-old after the procedure, and Wilson eventually stopped breathing. She was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was put on life support and pronounced dead seven days later.

Wilson was just one of many African-American women who have been victimized by abortions that went horribly wrong. African-Americans may comprise only 13.2 percent of the total U.S. population, but black women receive 29.7 percent of all abortions in the country.

“When abortions go wrong, it is more likely that women of color are the ones who end up on slabs in the morgue,” wrote Cheryl Sullenger, a senior policy analyst at Operation Rescue. “In the past five years, four out of five abortion-related maternal deaths documented by Operation Rescue have involved Black or Hispanic women.”

Troy Newman’s organization, Operation Rescue, just released the results of a nationwide survey showing that 73 abortion clinics were closed in 2014 alone.

Sullenger, coauthor of “Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time” with Newman, discussed a number of such deaths with WND.

One example: On July 20, 2012, a Chicago Planned Parenthood abortionist botched a second trimester abortion on Tonya Reaves, a 24-year-old black woman. Reaves eventually bled to death from what turned out to be a uterine perforation.
