TRAYVON MARTIN VS TONYA REAVES
WHY IS TRAYVON’S LIFE MORE VALUABLE?

And where is the outcry? Where is Al
Sharpton? Or the NAACP? A young African-American woman was murdered on a
table in back of an abortion mill in Chicago, and there is a black out
of media attention. Why? Was it because a group of people killed
her, and only one person killed Trayvon? Could it be the weapon used to
carry out the murder of Trayvon was a gun, while Tonya was murdered with
curettes and suction hoses? As you remember, there was a media blitz
everyday, for weeks! for Trayvon. But only one major media outlet
has reported on Tonya’s murder and death. Press_Release
Notice the contrast: Tonya and
her second trimester baby died on a table. Trayvon died on a sidewalk.
Trayvon Martin's family was in the center of the spotlight seeking
justice. So too, are Tonya Reaves family, but there is no spotlight.
Indeed, it appears that women, in particular black women, carry no value
in society; especially lately. For example, here, in the St Louis area,
for the past two weeks, there have been numerous gun shootings and a
marked increase of violence in the black community. In each of
these latest incidents a young women was cut down in the street and
Also, it appears there is a code of silence on the streets.
No one who knows information pertaining to these violent crimes
will come forth due to the “No Snitching” mentality.
Understand, people in the community know who the perpetrators are, but
they won't tell! So, where is the moral outcry? 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 dying, or any woman, for that matter, dying from
a legal abortion. However, the no snitching mentality exhibited when a
bad abortionist is hurting and killing women when they undergo
abortions, and girls shot down in the street, is the same. Why are we
accepting this substandard treatment of women? According to
medical reports, it is very clear Tonya Reaves suffered a cruel painful
death from the moment she walked into the abortion mill till twelve
During that time inside the mill where she
underwent a second trimester abortion, she laid bleeding from a
perforated uterus and an incomplete abortion. Once emergency personal
were summoned, some five and a half hours later, 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 access what led
to her injuries and the underlying problems which proved to be fatal.
All this cover-up delay, substandard care, negligence, cost her and her
family, her life. In contrast, Trayvon's resting place was marked off
with crime scene tape and a full and lengthy investigation was launched
as the nation watched through the media. It was the talk of every media
outlet. Marches and protest took place across cities. There was
full frontal outrage. I ask you where is the outrage and investigation
and support for Tonya Reaves?
Trayvon Martin’s alleged killer was
arrested, handcuffed and marched in leg shackles in front of televisions
throughout our nation. In Tonya’s murder, the abortionist, the
clinical director and the staff of the abortion mill, should be
handcuffed and shackled and exposed in the national spotlight for the
criminal activity and double standard that goes on behind abortion mill
doors. Tonya Reaves, like a lot of dead women, who have suffered at the
hands of abortionist, did not have to die. This was not an accident. I
ask you, is five and a half hours a reasonable amount of time to lay
hemorrhaging? This woman would have survived had emergency help
been summoned early on. This was a homicide and should be treated
as such. Where is the outrage?
Why is the abortion industry held to a different standard than
any other cold-blooded killer?
Different weapon: same results.
