It’s not just abortion.
You’re processing so much more than abortion:
Abortion stirs the pot.
It swirls up all the things in life you thought you could avoid,
you thought you didn’t have to look at,
you thought you could comply with…
The person you used to be saw the world through different lenses.
Now you have an abortion filter through which to look.
Your eyes are still adjusting.
Your heart is still adjusting.
You are expanding.
The world is a little bigger than you once believed it to be.
