November 11 1909, 1916, 1929: Mysterious Deaths

I have three Chicago abortion deaths on November 11:

In 1909, homemaker Marian Lang, age 29, died her home on N. 52nd Avenue in Chicago, from septicemia caused by an abortion. Dr. E. L. Pope was indicted by a grand jury. The source document does not indicate that the case went to trial.

In 1916, 28-year-old homemaker Margaret "Elizabeth" Winter died at her Chicago home from sepsis caused by an abortion perpetrated by Cecelia Stejskal, whose profession is given only as "abortion provider." Census records indicate that she was a midwife. Though Stejskal was held by the coroner, the case never went to trial.

In 1929, 23-year-old Mary Louise Kelly died in Chicago from an abortion performed by an unidentified perpetrator.

Go to YouTube, watch the video, then like, share and subscribe. This will help me to get monitized and finance a trip to Chicago so I can do more research.
