Safe-n-legal anniversary: Julia Rogers

Survivors of Julia Rogers, age 20, alleged that she underwent an abortion by Theodore Roosevelt Mason Howard at Friendship Medical Center in Chicago on April 21, 1973.

Julia's death certificate states that her death April 28 at Tabernacle Hospital was due to "bronchopneumonia and generalized peritonitis complicating extensive necrotizing endometritis and myometritis with sealed perforation."

In other words, she'd developed pneumonia complicating peritonitis; the muscle tissue of her uterus had begun to rot after a perforation.

Evelyn Dudley and Dorothy Brown also died after abortions at Friendship Medical Center.
