Thirty-two-year-old Mary Ann Dancy, mother of five, went to Fleming Center in North Raleigh, North Carolina for a safe and legal abortion on July 27, 1990.
The abortion was performed by Clarence J. Washington. He documented no complications.
After Mary Ann went home, she bled heavily, and the next day, July 28, she was taken to Halifax Memorial Hospital. She died that night during emergency surgery from hemorrhage due to a lacerated cervix.
