I remember my ex and I having trouble getting hold of contraception in Ireland. We had eventually asked and they had produced some from a drawer.
I am not sure I agree with Beau here.
My personal view is that there was a baby and that was what the two of them threw off the bridge (A miscarried child). Billy Joe may have been devastated and subsequently killed himself). Well that’s my theory anyway. The conversation at the table is being contrasted with the devastation they had felt for each other and for the loss of their child. The child’s body would have been taken by alligators. Mississippi Delta Alligators . That is my theory anyway.
Maybe if Mississippi started to treat women, black people a little better the water issues would resolve. (Just A Theory)

I believe I have just been disempowered by somebody who felt I should have chosen a different video.
I saw the devastation caused by a miscarriage when I was sick in hospital. (It had made me realise what my brother and his then fiance had been through.) The poor woman had cried for hours. She was left begging for a sandwich whilst the nurse ignored her and completed paperwork, I had offered to make a sandwich. The nurse had finally decided to do something. My friend was also treated callously following a miscarriage. She says she believed the nurses thought she had had an abortion.
Studying family history made me realise just how many in my family had suffered pregnancy loss. My aunt and her husband who used to give me Smarties and had bought me the poetry book, had a brother she had never known about. I put all these lost children on my family tree.
This is so beautiful.
