Laura Hope Smith dead from legal abortion

Often when the public hears stories of women who die from abortion they picture the so-called back alley. The truth is that today, the back alley has become the front alley abortion clinic.

Laura Hope Smith

Case in point. 22 year-old abortion patient, Laura Smith was 13 weeks pregnant when she sought an abortion at a clinic in Cape Cod, on September 13th, 2007.

Laura was pronounced dead later that day as a result of her legal abortion at the Women’s Health Center, in Hyannis, MA. where abortionist Rapin Osathanondh did the botched procedure.

During the abortion, Laura’s heart, pulse and blood pressure were not monitored, and there was no oxygen source in the room.

Abortionist Osathanondh and an office worker who had no training in resuscitation measures were the only ones with Laura after the abortion.

Osathanondh called Smith’s name to wake her, and when he received no response, he failed to timely initiate a call to 911, according to Laura’s mom, Eileen.

Smith was pronounced dead by the time she arrived at Cape Cod Hospital.

Laura’s mother, Eileen Smith reported that the abortionist lied repeatedly to its staff about the incident, telling them he gave Smith oxygen when he didn’t, monitored her pulse when he didn’t, claimed he and his assistant were certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support when they weren’t, and said he hadn’t left the room from the time he began CPR until the ambulance arrived.

It was later determined that Osathanondh did not have any means of monitoring Smith’s heart, and did not have oxygen or a functioning blood pressure cuff in the room during Smith’s abortion.

A report issued by the Board of Registration in Medicine said the abortion doctor, “engaged in conduct that calls into question his competence to practice medicine.”

The board also concluded that he “failed to adhere to basic cardiac life support protocol” and did not call an ambulance in a timely manner.

As a result of Laura’s death, Prosecutors charged Osathanondh with manslaughter.

In 2007, the 67-year-old abortion doctor was sentenced to six months in prison.

In a civil suit filed by Smith’s mother, Eileen Smith, Osathanondh agreed to pay the family a substantial sum of money as a punitive measure.

  • […] In 2010, a Cape Cod abortionist admitted that his actions led to the death of Laura Hope Smith, who came to him for an abortion at 13 weeks pregnant. She was pronounced dead later that day. Prosecutors charged 67-year-old Rapin Osathanondh (pictured right) with manslaughter, alleging that he failed to monitor her while she was under anesthesia, delayed calling emergency services when her heart stopped, and later lied to try to cover up his actions. In addition to receiving a six month jail sentence for pleading guilty to the criminal charge of involuntary manslaughter, Osathanondh settled a civil suit and agreed to pay $2 million to Smith’s parents. To date, no other abortionist has been labeled an “extremist” for Osathanondh’s actions. (Read more here.) […]
