Banning Abortion Isn’t Pro-Life: Anti-Choice Legislation Killed My Great-Grandmother
Two big things happened in 1929: the stock market crashed, and my grandmother was born.
My maternal grandmother, Ann, was the second child in the Hubbard-Miller family from Clinton, Missouri. Over the next four years, my maternal great grandmother, Joyce June Hubbard, would bear two more children. In 1936, at just thirty-six years old, she found out she was pregnant again. The family had lost nearly everything in the ’29 crash and could barely feed their family of six.
