After World War Two, many soldiers returned home from war and got married–and subsequently pregnant, giving rise to the Baby Boomer Generation.For the most part, that generation led conventional lives, but before Roe vs. Wade, the lives of some returning veterans, their wives, and their children took a turn down an entirely different path.
Take, for example, the story of a woman named Helen, a young woman from Georgia:
A young nursing student working at a notorious mental hospital meets an alcoholic patient, a scarred World War II combat Marine. She falls in love, but when she tells him she’s pregnant with his child, he abandons her and she’s forced to give up her first baby for adoption. After grueling hours of labor and childbirth, she never gets to hold her baby or even lay eyes on him.
This is her story.
