      Health Officials Tag Planned Parenthood for Slowly Reporting
      Abortion Death
      Riverside, CA (LifeNews.com) -- California health officials have
      reprimanded a Riverside Planned Parenthood abortion business
      saying it drug its feet in reporting how a woman there died in
      February after a legal abortion. The state said Planned
      Parenthood should have reported the woman's death within 24
      hours. The state Department of Health Services is probing the
      death of Edrica Goode a 21 year-old who died in February after
      toxic shock syndrome caused by the abortion she had. Her mother,
      Aletheia Meloncon, has filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood
      saying it was responsible for not preventing her death. According
      to a Los Angeles Times report, the health department issued a
      "deficiency" finding June 29 saying that "based on medical record
      reviews and staff interviews, the facility failed to report an
      unusual death occurrence involving a patient's death within 24
      hours to the department." As a result, the Planned Parenthood in
      Riverside must submit a plan to correct its reporting of abortion
      deaths to the state within the next 10 days. Planned Parenthood
      spokesman Vince Hall told the Times that the abortion business
      plans to respond on time and claimed, "The health and safety of
      our patients is our highest priority.
