As you examine this list, it is important to remember three things.

  • First, like Marla Cardamone, each of these women ended up on a steel coroner’s table as a result of their “choice” to submit to a “safe and legal” abortion.
  • Second, by the abortion industry’s own statistics, the overwhelming majority of abortions performed in America are done for non-medical reasons on healthy women carrying healthy babies.
  • Third, when researching this issue, it becomes clear that, for several reasons, abortion mortality is grotesquely under-reported.

Why?

One factor in this under-reporting is that the American abortion lobby has been effective in keeping abortion deaths from being counted as such in medical documents and studies, and equally effective in keeping the media from reporting on them when they are correctly identified. It is also true that some states don’t collect data on abortion deaths and others don’t report such data to any of the governmental agencies that track abortion mortality.

Another problem is that documents published by these governmental agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control, as well as those put out by state health departments and independent researchers, inevitably remove any information that might identify the victims. In these cases, these dead women are given “Jane Doe” names and are generally known only by age and race. Even with our limited resources, we were able to identify 154 additional victims who fall into this category. (Whatever identifying information was given in these cases was reconciled against our list to eliminate the possibility of duplication.)

We also found several hundred other death cases in which there was strong evidence that the women named had died from injuries sustained in legal abortions. However, since we did not have absolute PROOF that the abortion was the actual cause of death, those names were not included in our list.

All of these issues, and others, make it impossible to produce comprehensive and reliable information on this subject. For that reason, any statistics gathered from such research is meaningless. The fact is that no one knows how many women are killed in legal abortions. The only thing we know for certain is that the following list can represent no more than the tip of an iceberg. It should also be remembered that the autopsy photos of Marla are representative of what each of these women looked like after her “Safe and Legal” abortion.
