The Cost of Abortion in Women’s Lives


Legal, illegal, professional, amateur, and self-induced. Abortion can be deadly, no matter what the setting or who is doing the deed.

The stories below tell about women who died from abortions. The stories come from court documents, medical journal articles, autopsy reports, news stories, and online sources. The dates range from the 19th century to the 21st century. The abortionists were mostly doctors, though a few were lay abortionists, some were posing as physicians, and a few were the woman herself.

The one thing all these stories share is this: Each woman died at the hands of somebody who bought into the idea that women and their unborn children are mortal enemies, and that abortion is a solution to women’s problems.

Women deserve better.
