Women are Still Exploited and Killed by Abortion

    The following are actual documented cases of women killed or injured by abortion. It may be legal, but it’s sure not safe. Each woman’s case is documented in Mark Crutcher’s book, Lime 5. Sources for these deaths and injuries include public records such as medical records, coroners’ reports, court documents and other public documents. In this book alone, Crutcher documents more than 230 cases of women who died or were injured from their abortions. He chose not to print the actual names of these women out of respect for the privacy of their families. Anyone wishing to obtain the names of the people and facilities involved can easily find them through the public records Crutcher cites in the endnotes of Lime 5.

“Sandra,” age 28, had an abortion on April 27, 1990, and was discharged soon afterward. Upon returning home, her  babysitter stayed with her three children for several hours as “Sandra” slipped in and out of consciousness and suffered pain and abdominal swelling. The babysitter called the abortion center twice and was told that “Sandra’s” symptoms were normal. When a third call to the center yielded no response, the baby-sitter called paramedics. “Sandra” was pronounced dead upon her arrival at the hospital from an inch-long uterine laceration.

On July 27, 1990, 32-year-old “Mary Ann” had an abortion. After she was dismissed, her continued massive blood loss required that she be rushed to a local hospital. She died later that night following unsuccessful surgery to repair a badly lacerated cervix suffered during the abortion.

On June 26, 1994, “Pamela,” age 31, had a first-trimester abortion. During the drive home, she started bleeding heavily and became unresponsive. Her friends stopped at a motel and called an ambulance, while two passers-by performed CPR. At the hospital, she underwent an emergency hysterectomy to try to save her life, but she died of massive blood loss caused by a punctured uterus.

On June 14, 1980, “Linda” had an elective abortion. She suffered a punctured uterus, massive blood loss, shock and a septic infection, which led to cardiopulmonary arrest. “Linda” died July 16 at age 21.
