As executive director of Easter Women's Center, Moskowitz was a co-defendant in a suit on behalf of Venus Oritz, who was left in a vegetative state after a 1993 abortion, apparently by Dr. Lieber. Venus never recovered, and died in 1998 at the age of 29.
A suit by Sally N. alleged that she underwent an abortion by Moskowitz on January 7, 1992, along with a chorionic villi sampling which seemed to be done for experimental purposes, at Eastern Women's Center. Eastern's records indicate they were aware this was Sally's 6th abortion. Sally called Eastern's hotline on the evening of January 7, reporting pain and inability to urinate. Eastern staff assured her that this was normal. Sally got angry and hung up. Later she went to a hospital, where her perforations were detected and surgically corrected through an abdominal incision. The surgical report found 200 cc of old blood and clots in Sally's peritoneal cavity, 200 cc of old blood and clots in Sally's uterus, two 1cm uterine perforations that were persistently bleeding, and a 1 cm laceration of Sally's broad ligament. Sally called Eastern's hotline after her hospitalization and told staff that as a result of their negligent care of her, and the expenses she incurred, she and her three children lost their home. Sally was left unable to care for her children and had to send them to live with different relatives. (New York County Supreme Court Index No. 105512/39)
