October 16, 1923: Apparent Lay Abortionists in Chicago

On October 2, 1923, 16-year-old homemaker Loretta Schranz underwent a criminal abortion somewhere in Chicago. 

On October 16, she died at Chicago Hospital from complications of that abortion.

Ethel Davis and Lena Rumenstein were held by the coroner in Loretta's death. Their professions were not listed on my source document. 

Davis was indicted by a grand jury for felony murder on November 15.
