1972: Journey to New York for fatal abortion

In February of 1972, 21-year-old "Robin" traveled from Massachusetts to New York for a safe and legal first trimester abortion. She underwent the procedure and returned home.

About two weeks later, she started suffering abdominal pain. A month later, she was diagnosed with aplastic anemia and hepatitis.

Three months after her abortion, on May 4, 1972, Robin died, leaving two children motherless.
