Legal Abortion Death: Charisse of Denver, 20 (Infection)

Researcher Kevin Sherlock learned about the death of Charisse from Colorado. He writes:

“This 20-year-old single black woman died in a hospital in Arapahoe County July 28, 1989 after she underwent an abortion. Charisse, who worked as a restaurant counter person, died from a “severe infection” as a result of the “termination of pregnancy”, noted the doctor who determined the cause of her death.

The NCHS database showed two of the causes of Charisse’s death were legally induced abortion complicated by genital tract and pelvic infection and legally induced abortion without mention of complication (ICD – 9:635.0 and 635.9).”
