Pre Roe Abortion Deaths Were Rare

Pre Roe v Wade Abortion Deaths Were Rare — Sen Dianne Feinstein appeared to claim  in this morning’s (Sept. 5) question of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that between 200,000 and a million women died of illegal abortions in the 1950s and 1960s before a cynical Supreme Court declared it a right in 1973.

If we heard her right she is laughably wrong. There were about 300 deaths due to botch abortions per year in the 1950s which were brought down to less than 200 per year by 1965 due to advances in medicine.

To keep it in perspective, 658 persons died in boating accidents last year.
