9. Horrible!

My aunt was married, but this happened during a time of economic downturn, and they absolutely could not afford a 4th child. I think she bled to death at home. My grandparents completely fell apart, and blamed my uncle, who took his kids and disappeared from the rest of us. Only after the kids were grown, and grandparents and uncle had passed, did we cousins reunite. My mother talked about this throughout my childhood. She was very close to my aunt and I know was terribly hurt by this completely needless tragedy. My aunt SHOULD have been able to get a safe abortion, no questions asked.
