The Abortion Lottery: Women take chances with 'tryout' doctors

by: Pamela Zekman, Pamela Warrick | publication date: November 14, 1978 | Publication: Chicago Sun Times | pages: 1

On Michigan Av., women entrust their bodies to doctors who may be mere mechanics on the abortion assembly line.

While slick clinic brochures promise only board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists, few have earned that accreditation.
