January 21, 1919: Two Physicians Implicated

 On January 21, 1919, 26-year-old homemaker Wanda Skrzypzak died at Chicago's St. Elizabeth's Hospital from an abortion believed to have been perpetrated by Dr. Michael Rozumski and Dr. John P. Wojtaleiwicz. The doctors were held by the Coroner for intentional manslaughter by abortion on January 22, and were indicted on February 15, but the case never went to trial. There were allegations of police corruption associated with the case.
