January 3, 1984: Dead Teen in Oregon

Loretta Morton was 16 years old when she underwent a legal abortion in December of 1983. She was sent home with birth control pills.

On January 3, 1984, Loretta was at home, and having trouble breathing. Her mother called for an ambulance.

The ambulance crew assessed Loretta, decided she was stable, and left. They were called back ten minutes later because Loretta had lost consciousness.

The crew rushed Loretta to a hospital, but attempts to resuscitate her were in vain. Within an hour of having lost consciousness, she was dead.

An autopsy showed that she had died from a pulmonary embolism from the abortion.

An online search revealed that Loretta was yet another young Black girl on the altar of choice.
