Default Attacks were attempted abortions?

I haven't been able to find anymore on the case, like where exactly Emily had been that night, but it seems to add weight to the gang theory. Three women from one street in the space 6 months attacked by a gang?
Hello all,

I've just begun reading this thread, and can't help wondering if the stories behind the attacks on Emma Smith and Emily Horsnail (or Horsnell) sound implausible because they were fabricated to cover up attempted abortions? Either self-inflicted, or with help, the woman involved would certainly not want to confess that she had tried a criminal act, which abortion was then.
Just a thought.

Could the JAMES SEVIER, mentioned in Smith's case be Sivvy, Annie Chapman's fellow, I know Annie's was named by some as John [but no one actually seems sure what his name was], but gee it's close.

Probably nothing but a coincidence, but not exactly a common type name.

Wasn't 'sivvy' just a nickname though, because he made wire sieves for a living?

That is likely, but far from certain, I know that some accounts have him as John with various spellings of Seivey, Siffey, Sievey or Sivvey. From memory this was while they were living in Dorset Street (32??)
