John Biskind

Lisa Bardsley was 26 years old when she went to Dr. John Biskind in Phoenix, Arizona. She was at least 20 weeks pregnant when she underwent her supposedly safe and legal abortion on February 16, 1995.

An hour after the abortion was completed, Lisa was discharged from the clinic. With her boyfriend, who had accompanied her, Lisa headed home to Flagstaff.

Lisa took ill, so she and her boyfriend stopped at a motel and called for medical help. Lisa was taken to a hospital in Cottonwood, where she died February 17.

The autopsy showed that she'd bled to death from a large uterine laceration. (Arizona State Board of Medical Examiners, # 9215)

Biskind blamed Bardsley for her own death, saying that she'd been told not to leave the area for 48 hours.

Biskind went on to get into further trouble for delivering a live, nearly term infant during an abortion performed on a teenager, and for the abortion death of Lou Ann Herron. Herron's death got far more press than Bardsley's, whose death for some reason did not capture public attention or generate outrage the way Herron's death did.

Biskind's license was finally revoked in 1998.
