On This Date - Botched abortions, one that would prove fatal

Shanti F. said that she had an abortion performed by Steven Pine at Inglewood June 19, 1984. She sued for unspecified "severe bodily injuries and shock and injury to her nervous system." Her suit said that Inglewood's misdiagnosis of her condition on follow-up led to a delay in seeking care until July 24.


Thirty-two-year-old Kelly Morse of Vermont traveled with her husband to Hillcrest Women's Medical Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for an abortion on June 19, 1996. She would suffer immediate complications that would kill her within days.


J.V., alleged that she underwent an abortion at Family Planning Associates Medical Group by Edward Allred and/or Kenneth Wright and/or and/or J. Terrell Crad and/or Soon Sohn July 19, 1983. She was "rendered sick, lame, disabled and suffered injuries which caused and continue to cause pain, suffering, intense anxiety, emotional distress, insecurity, and apprehension;" and also sued for loss of earnings.
