1993: Embolism kills abortion patient

Thirty-six-year-old Kathy McKnight underwent an abortion on September 17, 1993. Early the next morning, Kathy had trouble breathing. She was taken to University Memorial Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina. Kathy died in the emergency room. Her autopsy revealed that she died of a pulmonary embolism.

I just heard from my friend in the Midwest last night that her pregnant frient (the one that had been considering abortion) might be miscarrying. Apparently, she's cramping and bleeding. I told my friend that she should tell her friend to see the doctor so that they can find out what's going on and monitor the situation as necessary. At least if she does miscarry, she won't have the guilt of her child's death on her own hands. But I do hope the child is going to be OK.

I have yet another update about the woman I requested prayer for some time ago who was considering abortion. She miscarried her child today, unfortunately. However, there are a couple of things that I am thankful for in this situation - first, that the child passed on its own, according to God's will instead of through abortion, and second, because the mother got to see her child. I'm glad that the mother will not have the guilt of her child's death on her hands, and very glad she got to see her child and say her final goodbyes. She described to my friend the tiny fingers and toes, the little eyes, and how sweet the child looked - she even made the comment that "nobody can say that's not a baby". I'm thankful that this lady now knows the truth of what an unborn baby IS - a baby, a tiny human being.

I'm sad about the child's passing, and yet glad that his or her life still did count for something great - to show his/her mother the truth of unborn life. I hope she is holding up well - I know that miscarriage is a sad thing to bear, from personal experience.

I'm sorry to hear about this, but thanks for the update. Yes, the baby was most definitely a *baby*.

Thanks for all your prayers. As sad as a miscarriage is (I've experienced two miscarriages myself, so I at least am not completely in the dark about how it really feels to a mother), I'm thankful that at least this child's life had meaning and purpose - this child did not live and die in vain. Sadness mixed with a little blessing, you know?

I sincerely hope the mother is holding up OK and will also be remembering her in prayer.
