Doctor’s 1974 Testimony Shows Just How Dangerous It Is When Abortion Is Illegal

Fusion editor Taryn Hillin recently unearthed a 1974 testimony from a congressional hearing on the possibility of adding a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution. The amendment would have essentially reversed the historic 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling protecthing a woman’s right to choose, instead valuing a fetus over a woman’s health and safety. Thankfully, the amendment never passed. 

“I have seen women die from illegal abortions; many women die.”
