Dr. Joe Bills Reynolds was a jack of all trades, doing a variety of elective surgeries, including safe and legal abortions, in his filthy clinic. Reynolds' anesthetist, age 60, had originally been hired as a janitor, and an untrained orderly was acting as his nurse. The operating room was littered with dirty cups and papers. Reynolds tried to collect $500,000 on his wife's life insurance after she bled to death after he opened 25-inch incision, ostensibly for liposuction, on September 7, 1989. Reynolds was found guilty of second-degree manslaughter. He voluntarily surrendered his Oklahoma license. Source: The Daily Oklahoman 4-22-91

Life Dynamics identified 21-year-old Gaylene Golden on their "Blackmun Wall" as the woman who died after an abortion by Reynolds.

LDI put together the following information on Gaylene's death:

  • Reynolds performed the abortion on Gaylene in his Oklahoma City office on September 30, 1985.
  • Due to a cervical laceration, Gaylene developed an embolism -- both air and amniotic fluid in her bloodstream.
  • This embolism killed her.
  • Gaylene left one child, a son, orphaned.

    LDI's sources: "Doctor's Trial Nears In Liposuction Death," The Daily Oklahoman, April 22, 1991; District Court of Oklahoma (OK) County, Case # CJ 87-2991; "Fatal Pulmonary Embolism During Legal Induced Abortion in the United States from 1972-1985," Lawson, Herschel W., MD, Atrash, Hani K., MD, MPH, Franks, Adele L., MD, American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vol. 162, No. 4, April 1990, p. 986-990
