This week, Steve and Rod tell the story of a Georgia doctor who decided that an acceptable alternative to the illegal abortions he was performing in the 1940’s and 50’s was the illegal sale of Appalachian babies. Hundreds of these babies were sold to buyers from all over the country, with no records kept, and very little way to reunite these children with their families in Tennessee and Georgia.
