Two anniversaries: One illegal, one safe and legal

Charisse Ards is one of the women Life Dynamics lists on the Blackmun Wall of women killed by legal abortion. Life Dynamics indicates that Charisse was 20 years old, single, and a mother of one. According to Life Dynamics, Charisse died July 28, 1989, from a pelvic infection after a legal abortion.
