Sixteen-year-old Loretta Morton was at home when she began having trouble breathing on January 3, 1984. Her mother called for an ambulance. The ambulance crew assessed Loretta, decided she was stable, and left. They were called back ten minutes later because Loretta had lost consciousness. The crew rushed Loretta to a hospital, but attempts to resuscitate her were in vain. Within an hour of having lost consciousness, she was dead.
An autopsy showed that she had died from a pulmonary embolism from an abortion she had undergone in December of 1983.
