Jose Velazquez successfully sued Mahesh C. Gupta, Santosh Gupta, Renga Rajan, and Maria De Los Santos Health Center over the death of his wife, Iris Velazquez. Iris was 20 years old when she died on September 5, 1987. Court documents over her estate allege that the abortion was illegal.

Westlaw gives no details about the abortion or Iris's death. However, it mentions that the couple had two children: a daughter who survived and a son who died seven months after Iris's death.

Rajan was also successfully sued for the 1982 abortion death of Darlene Wood.
