Kitty Mason was only fifteen years old when she found out that she was pregnant. Ashamed but unwilling to ruin her reputation, she gets a back-alley, illegal (at the time) abortion. This is set in the 1920s.

Lying down on the cold metal table, I shiver and clutch my hard abdomen.

\"Are you sure you want to go through with this?\"

I nod and watch the doctor and his two nurses pry apart a metal hanger. Closing my eyes, I slowly lift the hem of my skirt and let them pry apart my legs.

Through my screaming, I can hear the chastising voice of my mother, saying \"Just because it's the 20's doesn't mean you can fall lax on your virtues, Kitty.\"
