Mother allowed to sue over daughter's death at abortuary

In 1994, 13-year-old Deanna Adams walked into an Illinois abortion clinic, and her baby was murdered. But the abortionists, to calm her down, gave her twice the recommended dose of a fast-acting barbiturate, followed by three more “maintenance” doses.. Returning the next day the abortuary “staff” felt she looked “nervous” and gave her an even higher dose of the drug. Deanna turned pale and began to have trouble breathing, but the only “staff” was a woman with no medical training. By the time the abortion nurses and abortionist returned and began to do CPR, it was too late. During this, no one bothered to call 911.

From LifeNews:

An Illinois appeals court has ruled that a woman whose 13 year-old daughter died following a botched abortion has the right to file a lawsuit against the abortion business where it was performed.

Dianne Adams initially filed a wrongful death suit related to her daughter Deanna Bell's death in 1994 and, five years later, a jury ruled in favor of the abortion facility.

In 2000, an appellate court reversed the decision and said the judge in the initial case wrongly blocked some evidence from being admitted.

Adams attempted to re-file the case last year, according to an AP story, but a judge ruled too much time had elapsed since Bell's death. The appeals court decision Friday reinstates the lawsuit.

One thing women and girl who consider abortions should be made aware of, is that abortuaries are for the most part unregulated, and they are gambling their own lives when they go to one.

UPDATE: Christina Dunigan from RealChoice has more info. It seem LifeNews got the date wrong, it was 1992. Christina did some impressive footwork in following up on the story.

Life News has the date wrong. She died in 1992, so she's been dead as long as she'd been alive. For more, see here.
