Geraldine Easley

Geraldine Easley, age 19, admitted before her death on March 19, 1932, that she had undergone a criminal abortion. Since Dr. James W. Eisiminger and Dr. Richard E. Thacker had been responsible for a string of other criminal abortion deaths in the Oklahoma City area, suspicion in Geraldine’s death naturally leaned toward the two known quack abortionists.[1] However, to my knowledge the specific perpetrator was not identified.
