Dr. Sadie was a wonderful, compassionate woman who did a tremendous amount of good for women in a era when you did not boast about your unmarried daughter being pregnant. The women stayed with her, she did not charge many of them, and she arranged the adoptions. In rare cases, when she believed there was no alternative, she performed abortions to prevent women from getting back alley jobs that, in those days, often led to death.
She was beloved by many in Miles City, and admired. She practiced for over 50 years, starting in an era when there were very few female physicians. You would have been lucky to call her your doctor.
Remember, you are judging by today's standards and life was very different when Dr. Sadie was in practice.
