Virginia Wolfe, age 33, was pronounced dead on July 10, 1998.
The wheels were set in motion when Virginia went to Methodist Women's and Children's Hospital on July 6, 1998, to have an abortion performed by Dr. Lillian Jones. Jones performed a suction abortion. During the procedure, she punctured Virginia's uterus and bladder. Virginia suffered massive hemorrhage, losing so much blood that her heart stopped.
Doctors repaired her bladder and removed her uterus, but Virginia's brain had already been damaged by the lack of oxygen.
