1970: Yet another victim of New York's new abortion law

"Sheryl" was 23 years old when she decided to take advantage of the fact that safe, legal abortion had been made available in New York just recently. She had a history of sickle cell anemia and three live births.

She was in her first trimester of pregnancy when she underwent the abortion on July 11, 1970. Nine days later, July 20, she died from sickle cell crisis. The other women I've identified as dying from sickle cell crisis triggered by an abortion are Margaret Davis and Betty Hines.
