      illegal abortion, done with a back room doctor, she was in the hospital for 3 weeks, and had to have an emergency hysterectomy. That was in the 1930's when they were already to broke to feed the two kids they had.  Another friend almost died on a California beach in 1970, after an illegal abortion performed in Tijuana.  By all means, thanks to Rethuglicans, we will be returning  to the stone age, when women's lives were at risk all the time.
