Somebody was looking for abortion 1940s

Here's what I have:

From 1940 to 1945, there was roughly a 50% drop in abortion deaths (from 1,407 in 1940 to 744 in 1945), thanks to the development of antibiotics. Then from 1945 to 1950 came a tremendous drop, with abortion mortality falling to roughly a third of the previous tally (down to 263).

For more abortion deaths, visit the Cemetery of Choice:
