Twenty-two-year-old Chanelle Bryant was given the drugs for a safe and legal chemical abortion at a Family Planning Associates Medical Group facility in California. She was instructed to use the prostaglandin as a suppository, rather than take an oral prostaglandin. This off-label use is being investigated by the CDC and FDA after Chanelle and four other US women died of infection after RU-486 abortions.

Chanelle suffered terrible pain four days after self-administering the medication. She sought emergency care at Huntington Memorial Hospital. Her condition deteriorated, and she was transferred to the intensive care unit at 1:20 PM. At 4:11 she went into cardiac arrest. She was taken into surgery at 5:27 to try to identify the source of her problems. Ten minutes into surgery she went into cardiac arrest again. She was pronounced dead at 5:51.

Chanelle had been perfectly healthy before her abortion, according to her mother, Lynn Bryant. She told reporters that it was vital for medical professionals to be educated about the dangers of chemical abortions to prevent further maternal deaths.

Chanelle was about nine weeks pregnant when she went to the Glendale FPA owned by the infamous Edward "Fast Eddie" Allred. The coroner's report attributed her death, January 14, 2004, to "sepsis and pneumonia due to Endomyometritis with abscess formation due to Termination of Pregnancy."

Thus Chanelle joined the sad ranks of women known to have died after FPA abortions: Denise Holmes, Mary Pena, Josefina Garcia, Laniece Dorsey, Joyce Ortenzio, Tami Suematsu, Christina Mora, Susan Levy, Patricia Chacon, Kimberly Neil, and Deanna Bell.

FPA is a member of the National Abortion Federation, an organization that ostensibly ensures that abortions are done safely.

National Abortion Federation Promises
Screen capture of assurance of safe, quality care on National
Abortion Federation web site. It reads:
"What is a NAF Clinic? NAF is the professional association of
abortion providers in North America. .... In order to become a member,
a clinic must complete a rigorous application process. Member clinics
have agreed to comply with our standards for quality and care....
NAF periodically conducts site visits to confirm that our clinics
are in compliance with our guidelines.

Other women who have died after using the abortion cocktail include Holly Patterson, "Cherish" Roe, "Tara" Roe, "Wanda" Roe, Oriane Shevin, Vivian Tran, and Brenda Vise.
