Note also the comments in the video above by Planned Parenthood’s Julie Lynn, who talked about the “expert reproductive health care” provided by her employer. Let the record show that Lynn spoke these cruelly ironic words outside the very building where 24-year old Tonya Reaves had an abortion on July 20, 2012, and died the same day.
