Legal Abortion Death: Ellen Williams, 38 (Infection due to Punctured Uterus and Bowel)

Kevin Sherlock writes about Ellen Williams:

“This 38-year-old public school administrator died March 6, 1985, four days after undergoing an abortion at Dadeland Family Planning Center in Miami. Her husband sued abortion providers Nabil Ghali and Chatoor Singh for his wife’s death.

According to court paperwork on the case, Singh performed an abortion on Ellen March 2, 1985. Complaining of high fever and cramps, Ellen returned to the facility March 4. Ghali and Singh performed a second abortion on the woman and sent her home. She worsened, and had to be taken by ambulance to a hospital March 5. She died in the hospital the next day. A Dade County medical examiner performed an autopsy on her and found she died of peritonitis (inflammation of the abdominal and pelvic cavity lining membrane) because her uterus and bowel were punctured during the abortions.”
