1985: After two months in coma, teen dies from abortion complications

Shortly after midnight on June 22, 1985, a hospital staffer went to check on the condition of 17-year-old Deborah Ann Lozinski. Deborah was dead. She had been dead since shortly before midnight.

She had been in a coma since she'd undergone a safe and legal abortion at Medical Care Center in Woodbridge, New Jersey, two months earlier.

Earlier on the day of June 21, Deborah's parents had filed suit against Dr. Scheininger, Dr. Sinha, and other staff for failing to properly screen and examine Deborah prior to her abortion. They also alleged that staff failed to properly monitor their daughter's vital signs during the abortion, failing to quickly detect and properly treat respiratory difficulty. As a result, Deborah suffered the brain damage that had caused her coma and eventually her death.
