Demetrice Andrews, age 22, died from multiple organ failure at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta on November 9, 1988.
She had submitted to a safe, legal abortion on October 17, became progressively ill afterward, and been admitted to Grady.
It is ironic that Demetrice was admitted to Grady to be treated for abortion complications. Another woman, Jacqueline Reynolds, had died just two years earlier, from complications of anesthesia administered for an abortion performed at Grady.
