February 10, 1941: Scanty Information on Self-Induced Abortion

I'm always looking for more cases of abortion mortality that I can learn from. New York death records cite the February 10, 1941 death of Anita Luhs, a "dress operator."

Anita was 40 years old and lived with her husband, Walter, on Linden Street in New York. Anita had come to the US from Italy 28 years earlier. Her death is attributed to "septic endometritis following self-induced abortion."

That's all I've been able to learn.
