Victims of abortion across a century and a half

  • 1857: Martha Lockdoy, age 19, died in Albany, NY, from effects of an abortifacient she got from an "Indian doctress". Whatever that means. I was unable to determine if Mrs. Halm really was a doctor, and whether by "Indian" they mean she was Native American or she was from India.

  • 1958: Mrs. "Glenda Coe" was found dead in her Norman, Oklahoma home by one of her four children. An autopsy confirmed that an induced abortion had caused her death. Her ex-husband was arrested for questioning. I've been unable to determine who, if anybody, was ultimately held responsible for Georgia's death.

  • 1993: Kathy McKnight, age 36, died of a pulmonary embolism the day after her safe, legal abortion.

  • 2003: Regina Johnson, age 32, became the third abortion patient to die under the dubious care of National Abortion Federation member Womancare, run by Medical Students for Choice hero Alberto Hodari. Hodari was fined $10,000 by the medical board for Regina's death, which was blamed on his sloppy policies and procedures and lack of adequate equipment and protocols. Hodari was also responsible for the abortion deaths of Chivon Williams and 15-year-old statutory rape victim Tamiia Russell.
