About this Abortion Doctor:
Michelle D. sued Dr. Cliff Blumstein and Planned Parenthood of Hudson Peconic, Inc., charging that Dr. Blumstein perforated her uterus while performing an abortion on January 17, 2001. Michelle suffered uterine atony and persistent vaginal bleeding after the procedure, which required her transfer to a hospital. Medical records show that once at the hospital, doctors identified uterine perforation, bleeding in the abdominal cavity, and transection of the left uterine artery. It was necessary to remove the uterus and left ovary to prevent Michelle's death, rendering her unable to bear children in the future.
