"Nadine" Roe is one of the women Life Dynamics lists on the "Blackmun Wall" as having died from legal abortion.

Nadine was 32 years old, a mother of three, when she checked into a hospital for a safe, legal abortion some time before 1981.

During the abortion, her cervix and uterus were perforated. Even though she was in a hospital, where doctors should have been able to detect and treat her injuries, she bled to death.
