DC: A Family’s 700-Mile Journey To Have An Abortion Ended In A Lawsuit Against Planned Parenthood.
A woman sued Planned Parenthood after she said she traveled over 700 miles to abort her six-week-old baby and the procedure failed, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
Bianca Coons drove from Idaho to Planned Parenthood’s clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in February 2016 to have a medication abortion, the Albuquerque Journal reported Wednesday. Coons and her partner, Cristobal Ruiz, traveled to New Mexico in order to bypass Idaho’s mandatory waiting period so the baby would not continue to advance developmentally before she could have an abortion.
She is asking the organization to foot the bill for raising “an additional unplanned child,” according to the Journal. more
