Mary Bradley, a 41-year-old mother of four, underwent a safe, legal 20-week abortion performed Dr. Wayne Patterson in March of 1985.

Because of severe bleeding, she was admitted to a hospital and had a total hysterectomy on March 28.

Mary developed blood clotting and respiratory difficulties, and finally died on April 4, 1985.

According to official documents, another Alabama woman, Janyth Caldwell, died after an abortion performed by a doctor identified as George Wayne Patterson. The Alabama medical board lists no Dr. Wayne Patterson, only Dr. George Wayne Patterson, deceased, which leads me to believe that the same Dr. Patterson responsible for Mary's death had also caused the death of Janyth Caldwell the following year. If anybody can confirm or disprove this theory, please let me know. Dr. George Wayne Patterson himself also suffered an early death at somebody else's hands. He was gunned down outside a pornography theater in an apparent gangland slaying. (The Feminist Majority Foundation, and Revolutionary Worker refer to the slain doctor as "Wayne Patterson", which is further evidence that he is the same doctor responsible for Mary Bradley's death. The fact that this organization laments the gangland shooting of an abortionist, while ignoring the fact that he himself had evidently killed two women, underscores where the prochoice movement's priorities are.)
