Abortionist has a “bad day” and a Chicago woman dies. $2M settlement paid to surviving 1 year-old son.

Operation Rescue, which obtained the full autopsy results after the failed abortion, said at the time it indicates that Reaves’ injuries were survivable if she had received proper emergency care in a timely manner.

The autopsy report is seven pages in length but it took two months for it to be released publicly, despite requests from OR and a pro-life attorneys group. Operation Rescue president Troy Newman tells LifeNews the autopsy is missing any information about the Planned Parenthood clinic that did the failed abortion as well as the name of the abortion practitioner responsible for taking Reaves’ life. Newman says these omissions give substance to suspicions that there is an on-going cover-up of Planned Parenthood’s actions that led to Reaves’ death.

Editor’s note: As usual, no justice at all for the aborted baby – while $2 million – to be paid out 17 years from now – is a real “bargain” for Planned Parenthood – which receives over $350 million of our tax dollars every year. Life sure is cheap, these days!

CAUTION – GRAPHIC AUTOPSY IMAGES: What it looks like when women climb onto a table in one of these places and end up on an autopsy table a few hours later.

Free labor relations advice for Father Corapi: Negotiate a quick settlement and get on with your business.

Q: How does one typically make a serious problem with a disgruntled ex-employee go away?

A: You have your attorneys promptly negotiate an amicable settlement with all affected parties, typically including withdrawal of any and all statements and/or claims made “in the heat of battle” … groundless or not … plus an ironclad “gag” order … with no admission of fault, on either side … and then, a certain amount of cash changes hands.

Of course, in the Father Corapi case, that would still leave the church investigation to deal with.

For that, a good confession (by all those involved) should suffice.

Settlement reached in free speech dispute between Aurora, Illinois and pro-lifers

Aurora, Ill., Mar 26, 2010 / 01:12 am (CNA).- The city of Aurora, Illinois has settled a lawsuit alleging it violated the First Amendment rights of protesters of a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. Protesters had complained of conflicting legal advice from city officials and threats of mass arrests from the local police chief.

At one protest in 2007, police arrived on the scene with an armored paddy wagon and constant video surveillance, which protesters said was intimidating.

The settlement requires the city to amend two ordinances claimed to be unconstitutional, mandates First Amendment training for city police and establishes a grievance process to handle disputes between protesters and city officials, a press release from the Chicago-based Thomas More Society reports.
