Sherri Chessen News Conference at L.A. International Airport

Aug. 4, 1962 - Mrs. Sherri Chessen and her husband Bob gave a news conference today at L.A. International Airport. Mrs. Chessen, who took Thalidomide early in her pregnancy and now fears her baby will be deformed, hopes to have an abortion approved in Sweden. Her request for an abortion in Arizona, where the law permits an abortion only if the mother's life is in danger, was denied July 30.
