DES Info:  A DES Daughter comments on the Lou Grant Show that focused on DES “Inheritance”

I remember watching this episode years ago. And I am a DES daughter.

A lucky DES daughter. I remember sympathizing with Billie and her mother.

My folks had been married for nearly five years. Mom had to spend the last couple of months with her feet up and there were years between me and my sisters.


I know the daughter's anger but I can sympathize with her mother. My mother. The mothers who wanted their babies to make it and trusted their doctors!
