The family accused Turow of performing an incomplete abortion, lacerating Kathleen's uterus, and failing to detect her injuries. She was sent home and continued to bleed and pass clots for a month before her death on May 2, 1985.
Kathleen's death certificate attributes the death to hemorrhage from a perforated uterus.
