  •  When medical doctors (3+ / 0-)

    began their groups around the 1900s, they insisted that only an M.D. could perform an abortion, as opposed to the abortificents or ministrations of a midwife that were typically used and were widely available.

    It's an important part of the history, considering it happened during a time when women were the property of their husbands, couldn't vote, and couldn't be doctors.

    It's not just a zip code, it's an attitude.
