Anniversary: One of six Inglewood facility deaths

Yvonne Tanner, the 22-year-old mother of a young daughter, had an abortion performed by Stephen Pine and/or Morton Barke July 10, 1984 at Inglewood Women's Hospital.

Yvonne went into a coma immediately after the abortion, and died August 14, 1984. Her death certificate indicates coma, hypertension, and urinary tract infection.

The suit by her survivors alleged that Yvonne was not adequately advised of the risks prior to undergoing the fatal abortion.

The other women who met their deaths at Inglewood include:

  • Kathy Murphy
  • Lynette Wallace
  • Elizabeth Tsuji
  • Cora Lewis
  • Belinda Byrd
