"Amy" was 35 years old when she had a safe and legal abortion performed on December 24, 1970. She was 14 weeks pregnant. During the abortion, Amy suffered from a massive pulmonary embolism. Her two children faced a dismal Christmas, with their mother hospitalized in critical condition. Doctors fought over the holidays to save Amy's life, but to no avail. Their efforts would fail, with Amy's death January 2.
