    We have the pill now and it doesn’t prevent trash like Jhessey Shockley’s mother from breeding again and again.

      Well, I wouldn’t put Rebecca Smith in the same category as Jhessye Shockley’s mom.

    She could have very well have thought she was saving her children from a worse fate. If she had given them to an orphanage they could have very well been rounded up to work in a factory, coal mine, or in someone’s house for no pay and barely enough necessities to function.

      Who knows if an orphanage would have even accepted them, given that they were not orphans or even illegitimate. And the other alternative, the workhouse, was a terrible place for anyone to live, especially a baby. There was basically no safety net back then at all.
