I know you have no empathy, compassion or concern whatsoever for those vulnerable women/children but this is a new low even for you.Their mother unfortunately was a mental defective who IIRC had a nervous breakdown after meeting them because she had no recollection of ever giving birth to them.
The poor woman would have ended up in an Institution one way or another IMO.
Try to consider that this could have been your Mum or your Aunt - how would you have expected her to function following decades of trauma, hard labour and incarceration? Margaret died prematurely, contributing to that untimely death the exposure to certain chemicals in the laundry. She was lovingly recalled by those who knew her on a call to Liveline which caused her daughter to get in touch.
