On September 23, 1907, Mrs. Mabel Brock of Lake Station, Indiana, died in Chicago's John Streeter Hospital.
The coroner's jury determined that she had died from an abortion performd by midwife Mrs. Lobbie from Hobart, Indiana.
See Mabel's grave at Find a Grave.
Mabel's abortion was unusual in that it was not performed by a physician.
Note, please, that with issues such as doctors not using proper aseptic techniques, lack of access to blood transfusions and antibiotics, and overall poor health to begin with, there was likely little difference between the performance of a legal abortion and illegal practice, and the aftercare for either type of abortion was probably equally unlikely to do the woman much, if any, good.
