On January 15, 1989, Ghanaian native Eunice Agabgaa entered Y&P Medical Clinic in New York City for an abortion at the hands of Abram Zelikman. After the abortion, Zelikman left the clinic while Eunice was in recovery from the abortion. Unfortunately, Zelikman had botched the abortion so badly, she died.
A friend who was present at the clinic testified that she pleaded with the clinic staff to call paramedics once she noticed Eunice’s bloodied body and poor vital signs. Her friend stated “I felt if I hadn’t been there, they would have wrapped her dead body and thrown it in the garbage.”
