If you were unmarried and pregnant, you had very few options. What did women do? This very interesting article tells about a female physician in New York who performed abortions. The article also discusses what other options women had; there weren't many, and none of them were good.

Fascinating article, RosieAnnie. Thanks for sharing. There was another terrible alternative too, if the child was carried to full term. Baby farmers would 'take' unwanted children from people, and then basically murder them; either outright or leave them to starve to death.

Here are a few links.
