Equally dead. Equally tragic?

On February 27, 1926, 36-year-old Anna Welger died in her home from complications of an abortion performed that day. Theresa Struhala was indicted for felony murder in Anna's death. Struhala's profession is not listed. John Welger, whose relationship to Anna was not disclosed, was booked as an accomplice, but was later released.

"Roseanne" Roe, age 37, died February 27, 1971, in a New York hospital where she had been admitted earlier in the month for a safe, legal saline abortion. Roseanne left four children motherless. She had begun having siezures and vomiting after the abortion was initiated, and had aspirated on the vomit and developed the pneumonia that ended her life.
