On June 14, 1984, 14-year-old Germaine Newman had a second-trimester abortion performed by Dr. E. Wyman Garrett in Newark, New Jersey. She was 22 weeks pregnant.

After her abortion, Germaine began vomiting and suffered from abdominal pain and a high fever.

The next morning, June 15, Germaine's mother found her lying dead on the bathroom floor.

An autopsy found that Germaine's abdomen was full of pus and adhesions. The cause of death was abdominal infection and perforation of the uterus.

When the New Jersey medical board investigated Dr. Garrett, they noted that he had illegally altered Germaine's medical records.
