Doctor's Fatal Work in 1927 Chicago

On October 5, 1927, 31-year-old Auna Arola underwent a criminal abortion in Chicago. She died on October 18. On October 29, Dr. Vincent Tonavena was arrested. He was indicted for felony murder on November 1.

Auna's abortion was typical of illegal abortions in that it was performed by a physician.
