About that Wire Hanger

by Kevin D. Williamson

If I may be forgiven for adding a grisly detail to today’s already grisly discussion of abortion, one more thing about that wire hanger: I am aware of only one documented case of a hanger’s being used in a self-induced abortion. It did not happen during the pre-Roe era but during the era of legal abortion, just a few years ago, in fact. Clinical but nonetheless horrifying details here.
