1979: Antiquated abortion method leaves two kids motherless

Life Dynamics lists 24-year-old Lynn McNair on their "Blackmun Wall" of women killed by legal abortions. LDI notes that Lynn was 23 weeks pregnant when she was injected with saline by Dr. Edward Rubin at Jewish Memorial Hospital. The first injection of saline failed to kill the fetus, so Lynn was given a second injection. After this second dose, Lynn went into contractions and slipped into a coma. She died March 23, 1979 of a pulmonary embolism of amniotic fluid -- amniotic fluid that got into her lungs through her bloodstream. She left two children motherless.

Life Dynamics Inc is Marc Crutcher's organization!

We pro-choicers LOVE Marc Crutcher. His work caused the creation of Medical Students for Choice, which now represents THOUSANDS of med students, residents, and professors across USA.

Crutcher killed the right-to-life fantasy of a shortage of abortion docs, certainly for my lifetime, probably forever.

Yaaaaaay, Crutcher!

Yeah, MSFC produces enthusiastic girls who gush over abortion rights -- then spend some time actually working in an abortion mill and come away sad, demoralized, and ready to pass the baton to somebody else. Way to go! Any young woman who learns that abortion is great when you practice on a papaya, and wretched when you inflict it on a fellow human being, has learned an important lesson.
