1988: embolism kills mom having safe, legal abortion

Dawn Mendoza underwent a safe, legal abortion at the hands of Edward Rubin at Women's Medical Pavilion in Dobbs Ferry, New York, on June 29, 1988.

Rubin did a D&C abortion on Dawn, a 28-year-old mother of two, who then started screaming and gasping for breath. Staff tried unsuccessfully to revive her, but she died without ever being transferred to a hospital.

The medical examiner determined that she had died from amniotic fluid embolism, as evidenced by particles of placenta and amniotic fluid in her lungs.

I just wanted to say I stumbled across your blog the other day - it is an invaluable and brave blog that helps our women and saves the lives of our unborn.

Thank you for all the good work you do for the pro-life cause.

I wholeheartedly believe we can get rid of the evil that is abortion if more people know just how gruesome and devastating (not to mention deadly) it is.

God bless you.
