On the subject of parental involvement....

Today we remember a teen who died of complications of a secret safe-n-legal abortion.

National Abortion Federation member Abu Hayat performed an abortion on 17-year-old Sophie McCoy on September 18, 1990. That evening, she was bleeding, in pain, and having difficulty breathing. The next day she was taken to a hospital and found to have a perforated uterus and a case of sepsis.

An emergency hysterectomy was performed, but Sophie developed disseminated intravascular coagulopathy and died on September 26.

Sophie's mother found paperwork for Hayat's facility in Sophie's coat pocket. The case was reported to the district attorney and the New York Health Department, but nobody took any action against Hayat until he pulled the arm off an infant during an abortion attempt in 1991.
