New York City doctor arrested as an abortionist after the death of a married woman

An inquest was held into the death of Mrs. Jane Ly Vere of Columbia Street in New York City.  She had died the night before at her home but not before admitting to her family doctor and her husband that she had just had an abortion, her third in several months, and named the abortionist as a Dr. Lines with offices on Thirteenth Street.  The coronor immediately ordered the arrest of the 44 year old doctor, a native of Connecticut.  (By John Osborne)
