Dead Abortion Patient Still Waits for Justice Three Years Later

By Cheryl Sullenger

Chicago, IL — Tonya Reaves has been dead for three years. As the anniversary of the passing of this beautiful 24-year old African-American approaches on July 20, 2012, it seemed appropriate to link to a report we published last year based on the sworn deposition of Mandy Gittler, who conducted Reaves’ fatal 16-week abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago, Illinois.

The deposition was taken as part of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by family representatives on behalf of Reaves’ only surviving son. After Gittler’s incriminating statement in which there were many inconsistencies and much blame-shifting, Planned Parenthood settled with the family for the sum of $1.5 million, none of which came from Gittler’s pocket.

Today, Gittler continues the practice of aborting innocent babies, but with some changes. It appears she has moved on from the Planned Parenthood clinic that was the scene of the Reaves tragedy. She also shut down her private Chicago-area abortion business last fall.

Gittler has drifted to various abortion clinics, working for a brief period at a seedy abortion mill in Peoria, Illinois, before making a new home at Planned Parenthood’s abortion facility Kalamazoo, Michigan, where women have never heard of her troubled past.

Reaves death continues, as it should to haunt Gittler, but only in small ways. Operation Rescue discovered that Gittler lied about her part in the Reaves family lawsuit when applying for new medical licenses in Indiana and Michigan. Complaints were filed with state medical boards and those investigations are ongoing.

In the last year a young motherless Chicago area boy, who likely has no first-hand memory of his momma, celebrated his fourth birthday. Meanwhile, Tonya Reaves lies in her grave still waiting for justice.

    May God Bless and Protect Tonya Reaves and her family. Such an American Tragedy.

    For abortion does not give life. It only takes it away. Abortion, what is it good for, absolutely nothing. Termination, Surgical Abortion, Suction Abortion, Medical Abortion, RU-486 Abortion Pills – who wants to die?

    Abortion has brought the United States’ and the World’s ‘morales’ onto the edge of the pit onto a thousand years of darkness. For the shedding of innocent human blood, God cries out, “Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground!” Genesis 4:10

    How can you, our Country and our World be blessed by God because of abortion? How can you escape God’s wrath because of abortion? You, who do not believe in God or His words against abortion. Know God exists and He cries out in words against abortion because His Creation, His Little Ones on Earth are being slaughtered in front of His eyes. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. Be Wise, Fear the Lord and Protect Human Life I beg you.

    So what good is there about abortion?

    Ask Tonya Reaves:

    Ask Lakisha Wilson:

    Ask These Women:

    Ask the 58 million unborn children aborted and killed in America since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973:

    Ask the almost 1.5 billion unborn children aborted and killed world-wide since just 1980

    Yet none of the above can tell you what good there is in ‘legal’ abortion – because they are all dead because of abortion.

    Yet they are speaking through pro-life organizations like Operation Rescue especially Troy Newman, Cheryl Sullenger, their Staff and others. Also they speak through the pro-lifers who stand and pray in front of abortion mills.

    And they tell the people who go to these ‘legal’ abortion slaughterhouses to turn around and to go back home to live and let their unborn child live another day. To not suffer the same fate that they suffered.

    I pray everyday that you and your unborn child choose life too … I ask this in Jesus Name, Amen.

    For, abortion does not give life, it only takes it away. Abortion – what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!

    God Bless You All and God Bless Your Families
