On December 15, 1971, 22-year-old LaSandra Russ of Berkley, California, died at Memorial Hospital of Hawthorne. Doctors had been trying to revive her since she had gone into cardiac arrest the day before almost immediately after her abortion had been completed. LaSandra had been admitted on December 13, since at that time all legal abortions in California were performed in hospitals.
