Author documents three deaths from legal abortion in Atlanta

In the introduction to his book, abortion researcher Jerome S Legge, Jr. writes:

“The initial impetus for writing this book came to me during the summer of 1979. At that time, I was living in Atlanta and working in other areas of health delivery and research when, within a period of a few months, three young women died as a result of legal abortions carried out in Atlanta clinics. The ensuing debate in the community resulted in a full-blown discussion of the abortion issue, along with legislative hearings and actions to regulate the operations of the clinics more closely.”
