My work comes from my feelings about abortion. It is a difficult situation for all involved. It is a painful decision for a woman to make, one which not only affects her life but also that of a fetus and other people close to her. I wanted to inform others about the chaotic and complicated sadness that abortion brings to one experiencing it. A woman may ask, "Why do I have to make this decision? I have always tried to be a good person. Why me? Why woman? Why not men? Who's fault is this? I feel trapped, but in who's trap?" It is a trap that exists between woman, God, and babies.
