Monstrous Births
Sarah Blackwood

Thank you so much for this piece. I agree so strongly with the thoughts and arguments that you present.

My question is this — Do you think we actually can divorce pregnancy and childbirth from morality? Childbirth is not necessarily “just another biological process,” it is actually making a new human being, which relates to all of our thoughts and feelings about life, death, self, the soul, being… How can we separate the physical act and science of being pregnant and childbirth from the emotional dimension of it?

Thanks again for this important piece.
