[Drop title] The Philadelphia Story: Another Experiment on Women

[Philadelphia: Philadelphia Women's Health Collective and Friends, n.d. but ca. 1972]. First Edition. Quarto (28cm.); corner staple-bound self-wrappers; 5pp. printed from typescript. Fine condition. Critical account of a highly publicized weekend during which twenty Chicago women were transported by bus to Philadelphia in order to receive abortions after clinics in Chicago were shut down by the police. The weekend was organized by Harvey Karman and his associates, and Karman's "super coil" procedure was used on the fifteen women already in their second trimester. Nine women experienced complications, of which three were major complications. The report concludes that Karman was "more concerned undermining women's control of their health care and propagating his own technology and reputation than with meeting the health needs of women" (p. 3). Uncommon: Northwestern only in OCLC as of April, 2019.
