Oral History: Sarah Gruwell about Mary Alice (Gruwell) Williams

Family oral history (my aunt Barbara Gruwell Pumphrey) has Mary dying from abortion complications. She had become pregnant at a time the family couldn't afford another child. Her husband and she both agreed to go forward with the abortion. Unfortunately, Mary didn't survive the process.
