Angela Scott/Dolores Smith: In June of 1979, National Abortion Federation member Atlanta Women's Pavillion rose to new levels of incompetence when staff there managed to fatally injure two teenage abortion patients in less than an hour.
Angela stopped breathing in recovery. The nurse that was administering anesthesia to Deloris ran off to help resuscitate Angela -- and left the drug drip running into Deloris's IV, overdosing her. When the nurse returned, she found Deloris in cardiac arrest. Then staff refused to release the injured girl to EMS until the doctor came back from accompanying Angela to the hospital.
The girls both were left comatose. Angela died about a week later. Deloris -- whose mother later sued the clinic, stating that her daughter's pregnancy test had been negative -- lingered for months in a nursing home before she died.
