Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, has frequently come under fire for denying the link between abortion and breast cancer.
Now a San Diego affiliate is the subject of a multi-million dollar lawsuit for failing to tell a reproductive health patient she had cancer.
Former patient Rebecca Glover filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against Planned Parenthood of San Diego and Riverside Counties for allegations that her cervical cancer was misdiagnosed for over a year due to their negligence.
In the lawsuit, Glover claims that after performing a pap smear test, Planed Parenthood failed to tell Glover that the results of the tests revealed she had cervical cancer.
The suit also charges that upon realizing its negligence, Planned Parenthood attempted to cover up its mistake by refusing to turn over medical records to Glover and giving her medical treatment she did not need.
According to the suit, Glover did not find out about Planned Parenthood’s mistake for over a year.
Her cervical cancer had advanced to stage 3.
The lawsuit comes on the heels of one filed in mid-June by the mother of 12 year-old Edrica Goode, who died of toxic shock syndrome after having an abortion at PPSDR.
The suit alleges Planned Parenthood negligently caused Goode’s death by inserting cervical dilators into her despite the fact that Goode had a vaginal infection.
Later in June, as LifeNews.com reported, the California Department of Health Services issued a “deficiency” finding Planned Parenthood’s actions related to Goode’s death.
State officials said 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.”
