Where is Al Sharpton? Where is the NAACP? A young African-American woman was killed on a table in back of an abortion mill in Chicago, and there is a blackout of media attention. Why?
We've all heard of Trayvon Martin, the young black man gunned down in Sanford, Fla. But how many know about Tonya Reaves, a young black woman who, after she underwent a second-trimester abortion, lay bleeding for five and a half hours before outside help was summoned.
Once emergency personal arrived she was rushed to Northwestern University Hospital in Chicago, where more time was lost due to the code of silence in the abortion mill. Emergency physicians had to reconstruct her abortion timeline and assess what led to her injuries and the underlying problems, which proved to be fatal.
All this coverup, delay and substandard care cost her and her family, her life. I ask you, where is the outrage and investigation and support for Reaves?
Question: Why are women's lives less valuable? Is it because of the "A" word? Whatever the reason, there seems to be a double standard in society when it comes to black women -- or any woman, for that matter -- dying from a legal abortion. Why are we accepting this substandard treatment of women?
Understand, this was a homicide and should be treated as such. Where is the moral outrage? Why is the abortion industry held to a different standard than any other cold-blooded killer? Different weapon: same results.
