Anniversary: Hospital abortion proves fatal

Virginia Wolfe, age 33, went to Methodist Women's and Children's Hospital on July 6, 1998, to have an abortion performed by Dr. Lillian Jones. Jones performed a suction abortion. During the procedure, she punctured Virginia's uterus and bladder. Virginia suffered massive hemorrhage, losing so much blood that her heart stopped.

Doctors repaired her bladder and removed her uterus, but Virginia's brain had already been damaged by the lack of oxygen.

Virginia was pronounced dead on July 10, 1998.

Where's the hospital located? I surely wouldn't want to have an obestrical delivery done there, either :-P

I link to my original article, which cites my sources. This was in Bexar County.

Ok, thanks, just wanted to make sure it wasn't Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis (where I plan to move to soon)
