More deaths from my Westlaw notes

Margaret Marts asked her family physician to do an abortion. He made an ineffectual attempt to divert her from this plan. She instead found another physician who left her with a fatal infection.

Sylvia Sawdy died in 1885, two days before Christmas, after her paramour performed an abortion on her.
