Mother’s Heartbreak as Teen Daughter Dies After Taking Abortion Drugs
A ‘bubbly’ A-level student died when an abortion went tragically wrong.
Manon Jones, 18, was given two powerful drugs to terminate the six-week pregnancy.
After her condition deteriorated she went to the hospital, but doctors were distracted by another emergency and delayed giving her a life-saving blood transfusion for more than four hours.
Her mother told an inquest of the ‘worst hours of my life’ before medical staff turned off her life-support.
Llywela Jones said the family and her daughter’s boyfriend spent days with her in intensive care. ‘I gradually realised that Manon had already left us and was not likely to recover,’ she said.
‘We washed her beautiful dark hair and dressed her in a party dress and gave her a little makeup and jewellery and perfume so that she left the ward looking her best, as she would have wanted.
‘To have such a beautiful and precious daughter end her life in such a way, it seemed such an unnecessary tragedy, a mother’s worst fears come true.’
