Dorothy Bryant filed suit against Dr. Robert Prince (pictured) in her death. The suit says that Prince failed to perform a proper pre-operative evaluation before performing a safe and legal abortion on 22-year-old Dorothy at Dallas Medical Ladies Clinic on May 27, 1986. Dorothy hemorrhaged during the procedure. In the lawsuit, her family said that Prince was negligent in his administration of drugs, anesthesia, and in his administration of a blood transfusion. Dorothy was transferred to a hospital, where she died four days later of pulmonary fibrosis.
Prince is currently under investigation in Texas for failing to report possible sexual abuse of a 13-year old girl who called seeking an abortion.
