"Roseanne" was in the second trimester of pregnancy when she chose safe and legal abortion in 1971. She was 37 years old, had had four children.
She was infused with saline for the abortion. Two days later, she began vomiting and having siezures. She aspirated some of the vomit and developed pneumonia.
The pneumonia took its toll. Roseanne died on February 27 from the pneumonia and anoxic brain damage.
