Caption: Caricature of an abortionist. 19th century French artwork of a pregnant woman consulting a backstreet abortionist. Abortion was criminalised in France at the beginning of the 19th century. This lead to the establishment of illegal clinics, often staffed by untrained abortionists, that put the woman's health in great danger. Artwork from 1820.
