Margaret Paula Clodfelter was 19 years old when she had a safe and legal abortion at Richmond Medical Center For Women on June 2, 1989.

The abortion was performed by William Fitzhugh.

After she was discharged from the clinic, Margaret had pain and bleeding. She called the facility to consult with them, but they did not tell her that she needed any further care.

On June 4, she sought treatment at a hospital, where she was diagnosed with retained fetal tissue and a perforated uterus. She underwent a D&C.

She developed infection, so doctors performed a hysterectomy. Their efforts were in vain. Margaret died on June 16, 1989.

She left behind a husband and a one-year-old son.
