On June 22, 1928, 31-year-old Rose Hannover died at the office of Dr. Lester I. Ofner from complications of an abortion performed there that day. Ofner was held by the coroner on July 28. On November 28, he was acquitted. The source documents do not indicate why, so we have no way of knowing if he was wrongly identified by the coroner, if the prosecution screwed up, or if the way the law was written made getting a conviction difficult.
On June 22, 1996, 22-year-old Kelly Morse died in a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania hospital from complications of anesthesia administered during an abortion performed June 19 by Dr. Dr. Delhi Elmore Thweatt, Jr. at Hillcrest Women's Medical Center. Staff had administered a drug to Kelly that she had warned them she was allergic to. She immediately went into respiratory distress, which her inhaler did nothing to alleviate. Thweatt continued with the abortion, completing it in about four minutes, and spent some time providing ineffectual care to Kelly before having an ambulance summoned.
