Tapestry of Polygamy (check them out if you can get past your prejudices) helps women (girls really: married at 11 or 12 then kept pregnant) with little education, no family support (blood atonement is still openly practiced in the polyg communities) and saddest of all, no help at all from the LDS. The last is really bothersome since polygamy was legitimized by JS and is the doppleganger of his modern successors.

"and saddest of all, no help at all from the LDS"

You think the church should have a band of polygamy police or something? The church has no civic authority or power to punish other than disfellowhip or excommunicate.

Just what do you think the church should be doing that it isn't?

CLUE: None of these people are "Mormons." And they haven't been for about five generations.
