Madame RestellAnn Trow was born in PainswickGloucestershire, England in At the age of fifteen, she started work as a maid in a butcher's family. At the age of sixteen, she married Henry Sommers, an alcoholic tailor from Wiltshire. Ann remarried into a German—Russian immigrant, Charles Lohman. Charles Lohman worked in the printing industry, and at the time was a printer for the New York Herald. Lohman was a radical and freethinkera friend and colleague of George Matsellthe publisher of the radical journal the Free Inquirer. Ann's brother, Joseph Trow, had also emigrated to New York, and was working as a sales assistant in a pharmacy. Ann continued to develop an interest in women's health. Charles and Ann developed a story to validate Ann's interests in midwifery and women's health. According to their story, she had travelled to Europe to train in midwifery with a renowned French physician named Restell. She sold these products through the post and performed house visits. Self-professed doctors and pharmacists, she and her husband became surgeons. The new title ensured more profitable procedures could be performed under the same legal penalty given for offering medication-induced abortions. These were thought to upset the digestive tract, inducing a miscarriage. Surgical abortions included rupturing the amniotic sac, or dilating the cervix premature laboror even in-utero decapitation. She and her husband Charles operated out of a large brownstone mansion on the northeast corner of Fifth Avenue and 52nd Street. When Restell began her business, abortions were hardly illegal. Only surgical abortions were forbidden, and this was only after the quickeningthat is, when the woman started to feel the fetus move this was typically around 4 months time. Soon, Restell's success began to attract copiers and competition. This drew the attention of the AMAwhich officially launched a campaign in to end abortion. In order to rally support for their cause, the AMA targeted Restell, the most celebrated abortionist and deemed her the enemy. With the swift changes of law in New York, Restell was constantly being hounded by authorities and anti-abortion crusaders to end her practice. She was met with opposition from the press. Enoch E. Coverage was not limited to New York but rather extended to major cities throughout the United States and Europe. On July 7, —the earliest press's attack on Restell—his editorial claimed her business " But exposure of this controversy was not limited to men. Female journalists also engaged in undercover operations to shed light on illegal abortions in cities such as Chicago, with one example being the Chicago Times' "Girl Reporter. Etheridge, Dr. John Chaffee, and Dr. Edwin Hale. At her pleadings, these doctors and others agreed to perform abortions and thus violate the Illinois statute penalizing such procedures. Madame Restell became so well known throughout New York City that copies of her trials were published in the Times and the Police Gazette.
Madame Restell: The Abortionist of Fifth Avenue
Restell, like many self-proclaimed physicians of the time, had no real medical background. Born Ann Trow in May in Painswick, England, she had little formal education and began working as a maid at age A year later she married a tailor named Henry Summers. A few months after they arrived, in AugustHenry died of bilious fever. Ann supported herself as a seamstress, doing piecework at home so she could look after Caroline while she worked, all the while longing for something better. Together they concocted a story of a trip to Europe where Ann allegedly trained as a midwife with her grandmother, a renowned French physician named Restell. Her first notice ran in the New York Sun of March 18,and read, in part:. The advertiser, feeling the importance of this subject, and estimating the vast benefit resulting to thousands by the adoption of means prescribed by her, has opened an office, where married females can obtain the desired information. Clients arrived at her Greenwich Street office from 9 a. Her pills as well as those of her competitors simply commercialized traditional folk remedies that had been around for centuries, and were occasionally effective. In addition to selling abortifacients, she opened a boardinghouse where clients with unwanted pregnancies could give birth in anonymity. For an additional fee, she facilitated the adoption of infants. An abortion before quickening was legal, but an abortion after quickening was considered to be second-degree manslaughter. She had her first major brush with the law inwhen a year-old woman named Maria Purdy lay on her deathbed, suffering from tuberculosis. When her turn came, Restell listened to her story and gave her a small vial of yellow medicine in exchange for a dollar. Purdy took one dose that night and two the next day but then stopped, suddenly worried about the potential consequences. A doctor analyzed the medicine and concluded it contained oil of tansy and spirits of turpentine and advised her to never take it again. Purdy had no cash, and instead offered a pawn ticket for a gold watch chain and a stack of rings, which Restell accepted. She had the surgery, and was convinced that her present illness was a result. The case launched a debate that played out in the press, and the debate was as charged as it is today. She allowed wives to shirk the duties of motherhood. She insulted poor women by providing abortions when they could seek aid and solace from their church. What is female virtue, then, a mere thing of circumstance and occasion? The appellate court ruled that such depositions were admissible only in civil suits. Inthe New York State legislature passed a bill stipulating that providing abortions or abortifacients at any stage of pregnancy was a misdemeanor punishable by a mandatory year in prison. The legislators apparently overlooked the possibility that this provision would discourage testimony from women who had undergone abortions, making it more difficult to prosecute abortionists. Restell refused several times before allowing the surgery. Afterward, in pain, Bodine consulted a physician, who suspected an abortion and reported her to the police. Upon her release she claimed she would no longer offer surgical abortions, but would still provide pills and stays in her boardinghouse. The mayor of New York, Jacob A. Newspaper reports seemed as bothered by her wealth as by how she obtained it, detailing her collection of diamonds and pearls, her furs, her ostentatious carriage with four horses and a liveried coachman, her brownstone mansion on the corner of 52nd Street and 5th Avenue built in part, it was said, to annoy the first Roman Catholic archbishop of New York, John Hughes, who had denounced her from his pulpit and who had bought the next block on which to build St. Anthony Comstockthe founder of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vicelikened pornography to cancer and drew no distinction between birth control and abortion.
