Tragic suicide anniversary

"Sandra" was 18 years old when she underwent a first-trimester abortion procedure in New York.

Three days later, on April 18, 1971, Sandra killed herself. Before her death, she had expressed guilt about having "killed her baby."

Tragically, nobody had contacted Sandra to give her the results of the pathology report on what had been removed from her uterus. There had been no embryo. Sandra had not actually been pregnant.

Sandra's needless death highlights three problems: post-abortion anguish, lack of proper follow-up care and pathology reports, and the failure of some abortionists to verify that the patient is actually pregnant before selling her an abortion.
