Planned Parenthood gets a spanking!

SAN DIEGO, July 5, 2007 ( - Planned Parenthood of San Diego and Riverside Counties "failed to report in a timely manner" the death of Edrica Goode, a 21 year old woman who died of toxic shock after being given a laminaria at the facility. California Department of Health Services have filed a deficiency ruling against the facility that said, "Based on medical record reviews and staff interviews, the [clinic] failed to report an unusual death occurrence involving a patient's death within 24 hours to the department." The clinic is now required to submit a plan of correction to the state within 10 days. A department spokesman said Health Services is also investigating whether Goode received proper medical care.Goode was 14 weeks pregnant when she went without telling her family to the Riverside Planned Parenthood facility. A laminaria was inserted to expand her cervix and which helped an infection spread throughout her body. Goode's mother, Aletheia Meloncon, has filed a wrongful death and medical malpractice suit against the abortionist group. Meloncon says she had taken her daughter to hospital but because she had not been informed of her daughter's decision to abort, she was unable to provide staff with sufficient information to save her life.
