In colonial America, early-term abortion was a way of life for many women. But by 1900, it had become criminalized across the country -- but not for reasons you'd expect. In this two-part cultural and legal history of abortion, Cristen and Caroline time travel from ancient Greek herbal remedies to induce miscarriage to 19th-century abortionist Madame Restell at the center of America's first major abortion debate in this classic episode.
