SUMMARY: Mary Bradley, age 41, died April 4, 1985 after an abortion performed by George Wayne Patterson in Alabama.
Mary Missourie Penn Bradley, a 41-year-old mother of four, underwent a safe, legal 20-week abortion performed Dr. George Wayne Patterson in March of 1985.
Because of severe bleeding, she was admitted to a hospital and had a total hysterectomy on March 28. Mary developed blood clotting and respiratory difficulties, and finally died on April 4, 1985.
According to official documents, another Alabama woman, Janyth Caldwell, died the following year after an abortion performed by Patterson.
Patterson himself also suffered an early death at somebody else’s hands. He was gunned down outside a pornography theater in an apparent gangland slaying. The Feminist Majority Foundation, and //Revolutionary Worker// lament the gangland shooting of an abortionist, while ignoring the fact that he himself had evidently killed two women, underscores where the abortion lobby’s priorities are.
