Legalizing abortion had no impact on number of women dying

From an article in a leading medical journal in 1978, 5 years after abortion was legalized:

“There has been no major impact on the number of women dying from abortion in the United States since liberalized abortion was introduced… Legal abortion is now the leading cause of abortion -related maternal deaths in the United States.”

D Cavanagh, Am J Ob Gyn 130(3):375 Feb 1, 1978

Quoted in:  Ann Saltenberger Every Woman Has a Right to Know the Dangers of Legal Abortion (Glassboro, New Jersey: Air – Plus Enterprises, 1983)
