Women did not routinely risk their lives to secure an abortion. They knew that it was dangerous then. Now they equate being legal with being safe. It is not. The back alley abortionist has merely acquired a shingle and moved it to the front door. There is no special training or license required to perform an abortion. It could be a dermatologist or other specialty or no specialty. Abortion is easy money for an abortion doctor. They always tell patients to go to a hospital if they have trouble, not to call the abortion mill for help. Too many women have died as a result of their "safe, legal" abortion.
