Anniversary: One of two deaths after legal abortion by former criminal abortionist

Eighteen-year-old Yvonne Corrie Mesteth was the second of two patients to die of infection after abortions by South Dakota abortionist Benjamin Munson. (The other was Linda Padfield.) Yvonne was in the second trimester of her pregnancy. The abortion ws performed in Munson's office in Rapid City. Yvonne developed an infection, kidney failure, and adult respiratory distress syndrome. She died on July 27, 1985.

Munson is the third abortionist I know of who kept a clean record as a criminal abortionist, only to go on to kill two patients after legalization. The others are Jesse Ketchum (responsible for the deaths of Margaret Smith and Carole Schane) and Milan Vuitch (responsible for the deaths of Wilma Harris and Georgianna English).
