Mother of woman who died in botched abortion seeks change to laws
“I don’t want to see a doctor do that and get away with it ever again,” Mrs. White told the Catholic Review. (http://www.catholicreview.org/subpages/storyarchnew.aspx?action=9576) “It tore my family apart,” she said, “and I don’t want to see anyone else go through this.”
White is now raising her grandson, who she said was devastated by the loss of his mother.
“He cried for almost two years on the third of the month when his mother died,” White said. “He slept with me. I would wake up and he would be sweating. He’d be calling for her.”
