Recent news articles have released the name of the 4th California woman to die after a safe and legal chemical abortion. Hoa Thuy &quo;Vivian&quo; Tran, like Holly Patterson, got her abortion drugs at a Planned Parenthood. Vivian was 22 years old, and died December 29, 2003, six days into the abortion process. She‘d been given the drugs on December 23 at the Costa Mesa Planned Parenthood facility. The autopsy showed that she died of sepsis.

Vivian‘s husband is suing the drug company, Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernadino Counties, and The Population Council Inc., in Orange County Superiour Court.

Planned Parenthood spokesperson Kimberlee Ward said that PP has &quo;absolute confidence in this method of abortion,&quo; which is hardly surprising. After all, Vivian‘s fetus died, leaving PP with nothing to complain about.
