Hoa Thuy "Vivian" Tran, like Holly Patterson, had gotten drugs for her safe, legal abortion at a Planned Parenthood.
Vivian was 22 years old, and died December 29, 2003, six days into the abortion process. She‘d been given the drugs on December 23 at the Costa Mesa Planned Parenthood facility. The autopsy showed that she died of sepsis.
Vivian‘s husband is suing the drug company, Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernadino Counties, and The Population Council Inc., in Orange County Superiour Court.
Planned Parenthood spokesperson Kimberlee Ward said that PP has "absolute confidence in this method of abortion".This, though they were dispensing the drugs in an unapproved manner. But since Vivian's fetus died, it seems that the abortion was, at least for Planned Parenthood, completely satisfactory.
