Safe and legal: Gwendolyn Drummer

Fifteen-year-old Gwendolyn Drummer was a student at Harry Ellis High in Richmond, California, when she was admitted to Doctor's Hospital of Pinole for a legal abortion. On January 28, 1972, a strong salt solution was injected into Gwendolyn's uterus to kill her fetus. The salt solution got into Gwendolyn's blood stream, damaging her organs. She developed pneumonia, and died on January 31, 1972.
