Abortion deaths in 1983

The Centers for Disease Control deigned to count the following abortion deaths in their most recent Abortion Surveillance Summary, for 2004:

Today I'll look at deaths in 1983. They count 12 -- 11 legal and 1 illegal.

That said, we can look at the deaths I know of. I have 7 deaths:

  • Rosario Bermeo died after going into cardio-respiratory arrest on the abortion table in a New York hospital.

  • Sharon Davis died of sepsis after her uterus and bowel were punctured during an abortion in a New Mexico hospital.

  • Moris Helen Herron died of peritonitis after her abortionist told her to take a laxative for her post-abortion abdominal pain.

  • Barbara Hoppert died of complications of a legal abortion performed in a California hospital at the recommendation of her physician.

  • Mary Ives died from a post-abortion embolism.

  • Shirley Payne bled to death at a Florida clinic that killed three other patients.

  • "Ellen" Roe bled to death after being sent home with a fetal leg protruding from her uterus.
