. My Great-Grandpa Killed My Great-Grandma Giving Her An Abortion On Their Kitchen Table « JO LEE MAGAZINE

HUFFPOST/My grandmother’s father killed her mother performing an illegal abortion. He was never charged with a crime. After the death of his wife, he kept his younger daughter and his young boys with him. He sent my grandmother to work as a farmhand for a relative. To him, the abortion was a necessary risk. They already had too many kids.
