This is an utterly heartbreaking read. I'm so glad we repealed the Eighth but so sad for Ms P and her family and all the countless women before her who suffered in countless ways.

@Rachelover60

Have you actually read the story?

It was a gut wrenching enough situation at the time, but that article is heartbreaking. He has suffered a lot of a tragedy.

Poor man. I wonder where his grandchildren are living now.

I haven't a clue why I made that post and don't remember reading this thread before. Maybe my post was meant for another thread. Sorry anyway.

It is a very, very sad story.

Jesus the poor family.

Did they ever find out what killed her?

So, so sad sad I feel heartbroken for poor Mr P and for his grandkids too. Sadly, not an isolated event either.

I was a little incredulous when I first read that a lot of the Handmaid's Tale was based in fact, but the more I thought about it, the more I could see it. One part of the most recent series could be based on this story.

Thank god for repealing the eighth.
