Lest we forget - Three more deaths

May 12 marks the sad anniversary of more deaths from safe and legal abortions.

"Anita" Roe was a 23-year-old mother of two when she chose safe and legal abortion in 1971. She traveled from Massachusetts to New York for her abortion. She was 22 weeks pregnant. On May 11, the doctor initiated a saline abortion, then sent Anita home to expel the fetus. The next day, Anita was found unresponsive at her home. She was rushed to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival. She had bled to death.

Gladyss Delanoche Estanislao, 28-year-old mother of 1, underwent an aspiration abortion by Alan J. Ross at The Wisconsin Avenue Women's Health Care Center on April 25, 1989. On May 12, Gladyss was found unresponsive on the floor of the rest room near her college classroom. A doctor who was in the vicinity performed CPR while awaiting an ambulance. Gladyss was taken to a hospital, where she was declared dead on arrival from cardiac arrest due to blood loss from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. This is yet another example of the inexcusable failure of abortion practitioners to diagnose ectopic pregnancy, allowing patients to die needlessly.

The family of 34-year-old Colleen Chambers had become concerned about her after her abortion in 1991. They called an employee of the place Colleen lived, and asked him to check on her. He found her dead in her room. Autopsy showed that she had died from blood clots in her lungs and legs, and gave her date of death as May 12, 1991.

Note to the abortion lobby: Quit threatening to kill women with coat hangers. You're killing enough as it is with medical instruments.
