Life Dynamics lists 19-year-old Maria Lira on their "Blackmun Wall" of women killed by legal abortions.

LDI notes the following:

  • Maria was a college student when she went to Riveria Hospital on October 14, 1974, to undergo an abortion.
  • After she'd been discharged, Maria had problems and returned.
  • Staff perfromed a D&C, then discharged her again.
  • That night, she went to the emergency room due to excessive bleeding.
  • She was sent to Torrance Memorial Hospital for treatment.
  • Maria died at Torrance Memorial on October 16.
  • The autopsy found a decomposing fetus in her uterus, which had caused infection and DIC (disseminated intravacsular coagulopahty).
  • The DIC prevented clotting, causing the hemorrhage that killed Maria.
