Today I'll look at deaths in 1987. They count 7 legal and 2 illegal.
I have 11; 10 legal and one likely illegal, which means that I counted at least three that the CDC missed, but I likely missed an illegal death.
Remember that the CDC will count an abortion death as an illegal abortion death if the doctor's license was suspended or revoked, even if the woman had no way of knowing this and believed her abortion to be one of the perfectly safe, legal kind. So it's possible that one or more of these apparently legal deaths was "illegal" in their eyes. We have no way of knowing which ones they counted or how they classified them.
