Lest we forget -- "Roxanne" Roe

A girl Life Dynamics refers to as "Roxanne" was 17 years old when she traveled to New York from Michigan to have a first-trimester abortion in a doctor's office. The doctor gave her sedatives and local anesthesia to begin the abortion on May 13, 1972. But before the abortion could be started, Roxanne started to have convulsions and went into cardiac arrest. Roxanne was taken to an area hospital, but she was declared dead on arrival. An investigation into the case revealed that the doctor had exceeded the recommended dose of the local anesthesetic.

Note to the abortion lobby: Stop threatening to kill women with coathangers. You kill quite enough with medical equipment as it is.
