A burning question

In France, law enforcers, academics and the public are in shock over the case of Dominique Cottrez, 47, who confessed to killing eight of her children soon after delivering them. Experts consider this the "worst case of infanticide"
What I wanted to know upon reading the news was why Cottrez—and other women like her and in her situation—didn't simply use contraception if they feared pregnancy so much or loathed babies that badly.
But seriously, she'd have to go to the doctor to get her tubes tied or a prescription for the pill. Or an abortion.
