The survivors of Dorothy Brant filed suit against Dr. Robert Prince in her death.
The suit claims that Prince failed to perform a proper pre-operative evaluation before performing a safe and legal abortion on 22-year-old Dorothy at Dallas Medical Ladies Clinic on May 27, 1986.
Dorothy hemorrhaged during the procedure. In the lawsuit, her family said that Prince was negligent in his administration of drugs, anesthesia, and in his administration of a blood transfusion.
|Prince is quoted: "[Before Roe], I would see at least one criminal abortion a night, at least one, and often ten on weekends. All were infected... Most required surgery... and many required blood replacement. If these unfortunate women survived, they were often sterile as a result of infection..." So he becomes an abortionist and does this himself?|
Dorothy was transferred to a hospital, where she died four days later of pulmonary Fibrosis.
