Pro-life researcher Keven Sherlock told the story of Sandra Lynn Chmiel, who died from a legal abortion:
“Sandra Lynn Chmiel, a 35-year-old suburban Chicago mother of four, bled to death from a punctured uterus June 3, 1975, hours after she underwent an abortion at Biogenetics.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, testimony at a coroner’s inquest indicated a Biogenetics doctor performed Sandra’s abortion even though she was more than 12 weeks pregnant. (At the time, it was illegal in Illinois for a doctor to perform an abortion on a woman more than 12 weeks pregnant unless he performed it in a hospital.)
Biogenetics operatives had the gall to claim the doctor merely tried to repair Sandra’s female organs after she tried to abort her child herself. However, the Sun-Times article said, Biogenetics settled the case for $75,000 in 1978.”
