"Donna" Roe

"Donna" is one of the women Life Dynamics notes on their "Blackmun Wall" of women killed by legalized abortion.

Donna was 19 years old and 17 weeks pregnant when she underwent a prostaglandin abortion in 1973.

This was Donna's first pregnancy. She had no pre-existing conditions, but her doctor suspected that she waas an IV drug user.

About two hours after passing the dead fetus, Donna went into cardiac arrest. The autopsy found a microscopic pulmonary embolism, and an electolyte imbalance. Either of these can lead to cardiac arrest.
