Death by childlessness. And again, it’s happened in Pakistan.
I’ve been shocked by the repeated occurrence of suicides where the absence of children is cited as an official cause. Well, I’ve been shocked that so many of them are happening in India and Pakistan. I suppose I haven’t been that surprised that they happen in the first place.
As I’ve said, I’m compelled to stop and say a little prayer each time I find a case of DBC, and I hope you join me. No woman should die believing life has nothing to offer if she doesn’t produce a life herself.

A moment of silence, please.
