January is Sanctity of Human Life Month

AA For Life is Celebrating The Sanctity of Human Life!

January 22, 2017 is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS).  Since 1983, Americans have observed SOHLS as a day to celebrate the intrinsic value of ALL human life  - yes, even the preborn.  Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is held on the Sunday in January that falls closest to the day on which the Roe v. Wade and (the corresponding case) Doe v. Bolton decisions were handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 1973.  This important day also provides pregnancy centers to share about the work they do to bring life-affirming resources to their communities.  Click on the Local Events tab to see what's happening locally.  Check out this touching video:

A young woman has died after having a second-trimester abortion at a Chicago-area Planned Parenthood clinic. Tonya Reaves, 24, died on July 20, 2012, according to a local CBS television station, of hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, according to the medical examiner’s office following an autopsy after the abortion that claimed her life.

CBS Chicago said Reaves died after the abortion she had at 18 S. Michigan Avenue Planned Parenthood facility. The woman was transported from the Loop Health Center Planned Parenthood abortion clinic to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:20 P.M.

An autopsy conducted Saturday determined that she died from hemorrhage following a Dilation and Evacuation abortion. The D&E abortion method is one employed in pregnancies that have advanced beyond the first trimester. It involves opening the cervix and removing the pre-born baby by dismembering him or her. The Loop Health Center Planned Parenthood advertises abortions up to 18 weeks.

Tonya’s twin sister Toni was devastated by the news, telling the television station, “We were born the same day. She was my other half.”

“It happened so fast. She was just fine one day and then the next day she was gone. We’re just trying to figure out what happened… what happened,” she said.
Reaves’ sister indicated Tonya was engaged to be married and had another son, who had just enjoyed his first birthday.

Troy Newman, the head of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation, told LifeNews he is saddened by Reaves unnecessary death.
“Abortion deaths like this are completely avoidable. When a woman bleeds to death after an abortion, it is usually an indication of error on the part of the abortionist coupled with a delay in calling for emergency assistance. Planned Parenthood should be held accountable,” said Newman. “Our heartfelt prayers go out to the victim’s family at this time of tragic loss.”
