Today I'll look at deaths in 1985. They count 11 legal, 1 illegal, and 1 "unknown". Keep in mind that an "illegal" death, by the CDC's definitions, can seem like a safe and legal abortion to the woman in question. If the doctor's license has been suspended or revoked but he keeps working at an apparently legal clinic anyway, the CDC counts the woman's death as illegal because it wasn't performed by somebody legally permitted to perform abortions in that state. Myrta Baptiste is an example of this trick to disguise the deaths from legalized abortion.
That said, we can look at the deaths I know of. I have 11 deaths:
