Restellism

Bradley Mattes   |   December 31, 2021

If you researched 19th century abortion, the search would be more complete if you searched the word “restellism.”  It got its name from the nation’s most notorious New York illegal abortionist, Madame Restell.  She used the blood money from her deadly trade to build a mansion on Fifth Avenue where she practiced.  In the end she committed suicide there on the first day of her trial.  The old mansion still stands and ironically it offers fine French dining.  If the walls could talk it’d be interesting what they’d say to the upscale dinner patrons.  I found this interesting history in the book Motherhood Redeemed, which also confirms early feminists were very pro-life and condemned abortion.  They knew whether you called it abortion or restellism, it was still killing the innocent.
