It's them pills I took, to bring it off, she said.
(She's had five already, and nearly died of young George.)
Back in the 1920s, any pill you could take to abort a fetus would seriously affect your body. This is probably why Lil isn’t looking so good.
The unborn George was probably named after George V, king of the UK at the time.
Ironically, the etymological root of this name, Greek word georgos, means agrarian. This brings us back to the vegetation myth. This defiance life of life near-killed Lil to a state of being a living dead woman.
