Safe and Legal over the holidays: Denise Holmes

Today marks the first of the holiday anniversaries, the women and girls who died over the holiday season, died perhaps thinking that their abortions would mark a new beginning for them.

Denise Holmes, a 24-year-old Australian woman living in Texas, decided to undergo an abortion at Avalon Hospital in Los Angeles, California, on her way home for Christmas of 1970. She never made it home.

Denise checked into Avalon Hospital (an abortion facility owned by Edward Campbell Allred) on December 21. Denise suffered an amniotic fluid embolism that carried pieces of fetal bone marrow into her lungs. She was pronounced dead by Edward Allred at Avalon at 5pm.
