Sad safe and legal anniversary: Arnetta Hardaway

Arnetta Hardaway was 18 years old when she had a mid-trimester abortion performed by Dr. George Tucker in Atlanta on December 23, 1985. Arnetta continued to bleed, and developed infection, after her abortion. On December 27, she died from her complications.

Tucker had an active medical board order on his license as of January 4, 2002. The Georgia medical board web site does not reveal the details of the order. (Sources: Georgia Certificate of Death #048414; "Woman dies after abortion; doctor investigated," The Atlanta Constitution, February 4, 1986)
