And again, equally dead

"Tammy" traveled from Ohio to New York to undergo an abortion, which was performed on September 25, 1971. She was 33 years old. After the abortion, Tammy developed an infection which finally ended her life on October 13, 1971.

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.

The main difference I can see is that the people responsible for Barbara's death were tracked down and held accountable, whereas the people responsible for Tammy's death got away with it.

Ah, the many benefits of safe, legal abortion!
