Jill wasn't that bad. She's from the day when most soap moms sent their kids off to boarding school.
But when they returned Jill became too involved in both teen Billy & teen Phillip's life. She micromanaged both of their love lifes.
Jill turned down Kay 1 million dollars offer in 1975 for baby Phillip. ( equivalent to 5 million in today's dollars).
John Abbott demanded Jill get an abortion when she found out she was pregnant with Billy because he thought he was too old to have a child. Jill refused, so Billy's lucky he had a mom who was strong enough to stand up to her husband.
