It has happened again. A woman walked into a so-called “safe and legal” abortion clinic, and ended up dying along with her baby. This tragedy occurred in Jackson Heights, New York City. Complications from the abortion required the thirty-seven year old woman to be transferred to a hospital, where she later died after bleeding heavily.
Actually, the fact that she was even transferred to the hospital is more than what happens in some of these cases, where women are neglected in the abortion clinic and left to die there without any emergency medical equipment on hand.
We are talking here about legal clinics, not back-alleys. Making abortion legal did not make it safe, and the sooner the public understands that, the closer we will be to ending this horror.
