It’s too bad that abortion rights “pioneer” Ruth Proskauer Smith, a founder of NARAL, died in Manhattan last Friday at the age of 102.
Had Ruth only held on 3 more days she could have read about one of the fruits of her labor, pardon the pun, the tragic death Alexandra Nuñez in nearby Queens at a completely legal abortion/plastic surgery mill.
According to WPIX:
Emergency officials responded to A1 Medicine at 95-45 Roosevelt around 3:15p Monday.
A woman, believed to be in her 30’s, was reportedly bleeding heavily and rushed to Elmhurst Hospital Center where she was later pronounced dead.
Apparently the abortionist severed an artery, causing Nuñez to go into cardiac arrest. According to the NY Daily News today…
Nuñez [was] a single mother of 4….
She had told her family that she was going to a doctor’s office in Newark to have a cyst removed – and her death stunned her eldest daughter.
“I’m upset because I never got a chance to say goodbye,” said Daisy Davila, 19. “She didn’t want anyone to go with her. I made dinner and lunch [yesterday] hoping she would come back.”
“We’re not angry. We just want to know what happened,” said Davila, who insisted that her mother did not believe in abortions. “She was a strong woman, always happy. I looked up to her.”
An employee at the clinic – a one-stop gynecology and plastic surgery clinic that was still seeing patients yesterday – insisted that everything had gone well at the second-floor medical facility.
“The patient was transferred to the hospital, she didn’t die at the clinic,” said the woman, who refused to give her name. “Nothing happened here.”
Abortion proponents claim mothers who find themselves in crisis pregnancies haven’t received proper sex ed on the use of contraceptives. What about this tragic case? So heartbreaking. This just didn’t have to be, an obvious outcome of societal breakdown.
I found this odd graphic accompanying a Gothamist story on the death…
Here we had a legal front alley abortion.
So was the Gothamist strangely asserting that abortions should be kept legal or women will die – next to a story about a woman who died at a legal abortion mill?
Or was it trying to say, “Stop illegal coat hanger abortions that kill women but carry on with legal hack job abortions that kill women?”
Or was the editor simply an idiot who thought because this woman died the abortion must certainly have been illegal – in a country where abortion is legal on demand throughout all 9 months of pregnancy….
