Death of girl prompts abortion review27th March 2009
The Marie Stopes International clinic in Leeds is reviewing procedures after the death of a 15-year-old girl who had an abortion.
Alesha Thomas from Huddersfield was allowed to leave the clinic in July 2007 without antibiotics but five days later died from a heart attack due to toxic shock syndrome. Coroner Roger Whittaker said antibiotics would probably have saved and her urged the clinic to change its systems.
Marie Stopes International said it will look closely at the coroner's comments and take further steps, as appropriate, to address any areas of concern that have been identified.
