THE RADICAL TREATMENT OF ABORTION WITH OBSERVATIONS ON AND AN ANALYSIS OF 3,500 CASES

The term "abortion" has come to have both a social and a pathologicsignificance, and while this paper is intentionally occupied with the latter phase of the subject only, it is impossible to ignore entirely the social difficulties complicating the situation. The truth of this will be sufficiently elucidated as we follow the analysis.

There is a second class of difficulties meeting us at the outset of discussion due to the popular ignorance which neither reports nor treats abortions until after they have brought such evils in their train as may only too frequently be expected to follow neglect.

These last might properly be termed educational difficulties, and to meet them a series of articles is needed for the public rather than for this present audience, in order to demonstrate how cumulative and progressive is the tendency of neglected abortions to produce future interrupted pregnancies and resulting uterine disease.
