Fifteen-year-old Sara Neibel went to Midtown Hospital in Atlanta for a safe and legal abortion at 17 weeks. She was given a clean bill of health and sent home.The next day, she reported a severe headache, sore neck, neck stiffness, and trouble seeing. Her parents began the drive to take her to the hospital. On the way there, Sara began screaming and behaving strangely. When they got to the hospital, she refused to get out of the car. She was disoriented and stuporous upon admission.Sara went into respiratory arrest, and was admitted to the ICU. She was pronounced dead May 11, 1994. The cause of death was determined to be Group B Streptococci Meningitis caused by infected amniotic fluid in her bloodstream.The autopsy performed on Sara found dead tissue and a fetal bone fragment in her infected uterus.Midtown Hospital was a member of the National Abortion Federation., the same organization that failed to report Kermit Gosnell, had him working at one clinic, and had another clinic that was referring to him.
"Melissa" was 27 years old and five months pregnant when she checked into Lutheran Medical Center of Brooklin on May 1, 1992.
For some reason, her doctor chose the dangerous and antiquated saline abortion procedure. She died of complications on May 11.
Barbara Dillon, a 22-year-old college student, underwent a safe and legal abortion performed by Dr. Mark Silver at Long Island Gynecological Group April 18, 1981. The pathology report identified placental tissue, but no fetal
parts. This meant that something had gone wrong, and that Barbara
needed medical care, but nobody contacted her to tell her this. Barbara suffered
pain and bleeding from May 5. On May 10, her roommates got a neighbor to take Barbara
to the university health center. Barbara was unconscious upon arrival,
with no respiration, blood pressure, or pulse, and was rushed to the
emergency room. There were delays finding a doctor from the clinic who
would aid the emergency room physician in addressing Barbara's symptoms.
She went into irreversible shock and died on May 11. It turned out
that Barbara had an ectopic pregnancy which the clinic had failed to
detect. Barbara's father also sued Silver over his daughter's death.
Even though, in
theory, women who choose abortion should be less likely to die of
ectopic pregnancy complications, experiences shows that they're actually
more likely to die, due to sloppy practices by abortion practitioners.
