Somebody was looking for teen abortion stories. My focus is: Teens Killed By Abortion
Though all the stories are tragic, these stand out:
19-year-old Angela Scott and 14-year-old Delores Smith suffered fatal injuries within an hour of each other in a National Abortion Federation facility in 1979.
Barbara Hoppert underwent a second-trimester abortion on the recommendation of her doctor. She was pronounced dead on the operating table.
Thirteen-year-old Dawn Ravenelle languished in a coma after an abortion arranged by a school counselor behind her parent's backs. Her mother later said, "While I was there at the hospital -- they were doing tests -- I had to keep my hand pressed over my mouth to keep from screaming in horror. I kept going, 'This is all a bad dream. I am going to wake up and this will not have happened."
Erica Richardson was carried, unconscious, out to her aunt's car by her abortionist. He said to take her home and put her to bed. Her aunt took her to a hospital, where she died from an embolism.
Erna Fisher was holding her mother's hand when she choked to death on her own vomit during her abortion.
Fourteen-year-old Germaine Newman was found dead on the bathroom floor by her mother the day after her abortion.
Jennifer Suddeth's common-law husband kept calling the clinic, alarmed at her bleeding. When he finally gave up on the clinic and called an ambulance, it was too late.
Staff at the abortion clinic where K.B. died had her charted as "pink, alert, responsive" when she was in cardiac arrest.
Latachie Veal's sister performed CPR while waiting for the ambulance that arrived too late.
Rita McDowell awoke screaming in the early morning hours after her abortion. She was rushed to the hospital, to no avail.
Fourteen-year-old Sandra Kaiser threw herself into traffic and died after her sister had signed parental consent forms for her abortion.
Tamia Russell (pictured) was so far advanced in her pregnancy that one of the abortion clinics her boyfriend's sister brought her to offered her prenatal care and vitamins. The boyfriend's sister persisted until she found a willing abortionist.
Of course, not all teens die from their safe-n-legal abortions.
Erin's teacher, school staff, and other adults conspired to arrange a secret abortion for the 14-year-old. Her mother found out only when Erin was brought to a hospital for emergency surgery to save her life after complications.
Missie's mother tried everything -- including a restraining order -- to prevent the abortion that injured her 15-year-old daughter.
