By Sophie Novack
On the day before her abortion, Kristyn Ingram and her husband flipped through books of baby names. They chose one if it was a girl, and another for a boy.
The next morning — December 8, 2006 — Ingram, then a fourth-year medical student in San Antonio and 17 weeks pregnant, received the abortion pill cytotec to induce labor at her local hospital. She got an epidural. After 12 hours she delivered a girl, dead. They named her Annabelle Cartwright Ingram.
