On October 13, 1939, the body of Barbara Hanson, age 21, was found in a Houston, Texas, motel room.
James Carter and George F. Norton pleaded guilty to performing the abortion that killed Barbara, and each received a 5-7 year sentence. Barbara's boyfriend and another man pleaded guilty to accessory charges and were each sentenced to one year. I've been unable to determine anything else abortion Barbara's death or about the men responsible.
Today is also the anniversary of a safe and legal abortion death. "Tammy" is one of the women Life Dynamics identifies on their "Blackmun Wall" as having been killed by a safe and legal abortion.
Tammy, age 33, traveled from Ohio to New York to undergo an abortion under New York's liberal abortion law. Her abortion was performed on September 25, 1971.
After the abortion, Tammy developed an infection which finally ended her life on October 13, 1971.
