Joann B. alleged that she was diagnosed pregnant by Abraham Alberto Hodari (pictured) and/or other staff at Northland Women's Medical Center. There was no ultrasound or other verification done to ensure that the positive pregnancy test was accurate. Joann underwent an abortion by Hodari June 17, 1985. She suffered a perforated uterus and permanent injury for which surgical repair was required. After her abortion Joann learned that she had not actually been pregnant.

But she was able to choose abortion, so it's all okay, right?
