1971: Saline meant to kill baby kills mother as well

"Beth" was 23 years old when she traveled from Massachusetts to New York for a safe, legal abortion in 1971. The abortion was initiated by injecting saline into Beth's uterus. But instead of the amniotic sac, the saline went into Beth's bloodstream. Beth immediately began to have siezures and went into a coma. She was pronounced dead on December 29, 1971.
