San Francisco's Queen of Vice ebook: EPUB met Adobe-DRM

The Strange Career of Abortionist Inez Brown Burns

San Francisco's Queen of Vice uncovers the story of one of the most skilled, high-priced, and corrupt abortion entrepreneurs in America. Even as Prohibition was the driving force behind organized crime, abortions became the third-largest illegal enterprise as state and federal statutes combined with changing social mores to drive abortionists into hiding. Inez Brown Burns, a notorious socialite and abortionist in San Francisco, made a fortune providing her services to desperate women throughout California. Beginning in the 1920s, Burns oversaw some 150,000 abortions until her trial and conviction brought her downfall. In San Francisco's Queen of Vice,Lisa Riggintells the story of the rise and fall of San Francisco's "abortion queen" and explores the rivalry between Burns andthe city's newly elected district attorney, Edmund G. "Pat" Brown (father of the present governor of California). Pledgingto clean up the graft-ridden city, Brown exposed the hiddenyet not-so-secret life of backroom deals, political payoffs, and corrupt city cops. Through the arrest, prosecution, and convictionof Burns, Brown used his success as a stepping-stone for his political rise to California's governor's mansion. Featuring an array of larger-than-life characters, Riggin shows how Cold War domestic ideology and the national quest to return to a more traditional America quickly developed into a battle against internal decay. Based on a combination of newspaper accounts, court records, and personal interviews,San Francisco's Queen of Vice reveals how the drama played out in the life and trial of one of the wealthiest women in California history.
