Susannah Lattin

Susannah Lattin was an American woman who died of a postpartum infection at an illegal abortion and adoption clinic at 6 Amity Place in New York City. The clinic was operated by Henry Dyer Grindle. She was told to pay $150 (the equivalent of $4,000 in 2020) for an abortion. Grindle determined that she was too far along in her pregnancy, and she stayed at the clinic until she gave birth. The child was anonymously adopted. Her death led to an investigation which resulted in the regulation of abortion and adoptions in New York City in 1868.
