Anniversary: Rose Lefebre

On December 2, 1901, the body of Rose Lefebre was found in the office of Dr. Volbending. It appeared that Rose had died from an abortion.

Dr. Volbending was arrested, but she was later exonerated by a Coroner's Jury.

Rose's abortion was typical of criminal abortions in that it was performed by a physician.
