Here' -- Except a Botched Abortion Ending in Fatality
Mother of four dies after abortionist severs an artery during an
Alexandra Nunez, a 37-year old single mother of four, died after a
botched abortion Monday at the A-1 Women's Center in New York City.
Police, who are continuing to investigate the death, said that the
abortionist severed an artery during Nunez's abortion, leading to
massive bleeding and eventually cardiac arrest. Nunez was rushed to a
nearby hospital where she died.
A-1 Women's Center, located in a run-down building in a predominately
Hispanic neighborhood of Jackson Heights, was only recently licensed in
July of last year to do surgical procedures that required anesthesia.
It is operated by an abortionist Salomon Epstein, who has a long
history of being protested by pro-life groups.
An unidentified clinic worker told reporters that everything had "gone
well" at the abortion clinic, which also doubles as a plastic surgery
center. "Nothing happened here," she said.
"Nothing happened there -- except fatal injuries during a botched
abortion which cost a woman her life," said Operation Rescue President
Troy Newman. "It is so typical of abortion clinics to hide the truth,
but this time, the truth is out. The clinic is under investigation, and
we will be forwarding information about this tragedy to the New York
State Medical Board and demand disciplinary action against the
Operation Rescue recently launched the Abortion Whistleblowers
campaign, offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the
arrest and conviction of an abortionist who is breaking the law.
"We urge anyone working at A-1 Women's Center to come forward and tell
what they know in the interest of protecting other women from suffering
Ms. Nunez's fate."
