Planned Parenthood is getting a taste of its own deadly medicine.
Earlier this month, an Idaho couple sued one of its New Mexico abortion facilities for a failed abortion that resulted in the birth of their third child, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
Bianca Coons and her partner, Cristobal Ruiz, want $765,000 for the cost of raising “an additional unplanned child,” as well as compensation for a breach of contract, unfair trade practices, violation of consumer protection laws and emotional distress, the report states.
“The defendant’s failure to properly supervise and administer the abortion service directly resulted in the failure of the pregnancy termination which resulted in injury to plaintiffs’ interests in family planning and their interests in financial planning for the future of their family,” the lawsuit states.
Defendants include Planned Parenthood, a Boise, Idaho hospital and medical workers.
The couple said they traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico for an early abortion because they are “destitute and attempting to maintain and limit the size of their family.”
Coons said she was about six weeks pregnant when Planned Parenthood gave her a medical abortion, which involves taking two drugs to kill and then expel the aborted baby’s body.
The abortion chain says the drugs are successful in 94 to 98 percent of cases if a woman is fewer than nine weeks pregnant, according to their lawsuit.

But in Coons’ case, they did not work.
Here’s more from the report:
Days later, Coons spoke with Planned Parenthood staff who told her she should take a blood test to determine whether the medication worked. During that conversation, according to the lawsuit, Coons said she would like to have a second medication abortion if she was still pregnant.
The staff member told her she could receive a second procedure free of charge if she returned to New Mexico or she could visit a clinic in Idaho where she would have to pay for additional procedures, the lawsuit says.
By early March, a still-pregnant Coons told a Planned Parenthood staff member that she could not afford “a second round of the abortion protocol.”
The lawsuit suggests that Coons became more uncomfortable with the idea of aborting her baby as her pregnancy progressed.
“The fetus had now developed to somewhere around nine weeks. Ms. Coons could not morally sanction further action to terminate the fetus,” it states.
The couple said they now are worried that their son, who was born a month early with jaundice and blood sugar issues, may have life-long health problems as a result of the abortion drugs.
The whole situation is a tragedy, but it also is a product of the abortion industry’s own flawed propaganda. Planned Parenthood tells women that they should be able to choose if and when to become mothers, and it sells abortion as the answer. The abortion industry pushes abortion as an answer to poverty, abuse, career goals and even the lifestyle that a woman wants to lead. It even claims an abortion is a woman’s “right.” So, when that so-called “right” to a dead baby does not happen, it’s no wonder that women like Coons feel entitled to compensation from the abortion industry.
