The most recent deaths they tally are for 2003. Since then I have found:
Now we can look at where the CDC deigns to count:
Lest you think that the CDC has all mine, plus some, remember that we know they didn't count Latachie Veal.
For 1981, I found 10 - Barbara Auerbach, Diane Boyd, Sheryl Cottone, Barbara Dillon, Norma Greene, Barbara Lerner, Maura Morales, "Isabel Roe", Sharonda Rowe, and Robin Wells - while they counted only 8.
For 1985, they counted 11, and I found 12.
For 1986, they counted 11, and I found 16.
For 1987, they counted 7, and I found 11.
For 1989, they counted 12, and I found 14.
So there's some overlap, but just because I discovered a woman's abortion death doesn't mean the CDC counted her.
Now, I do have three RU-486 deaths that the CDC has probably counted, but that I can't pin to a specific year because I don't have enough information. Still, we know that the CDC knows of at least 22 abortion deaths from 2000-2003 that I don't know about.
