Abortion is defined as a premature birth occurring before the fetus can survive; an induced expulsion of a fetus. "The Mother," a poem written by Gwendolyn Brooks looks at abortion from a different point of view. This is a poem that deals with the sequence of emotions that a woman may go through after she has had an abortion. The images of the typical children events go through her mind. This woman, the mother, is being tortured by these images of what might have been; she also has overwhelming regret plaguing her mind.
As if the trauma of being pregnant isn't enough for a woman, the memories of her abortion can only torture her. "Abortions will not let you forget," is a clear statement that she does not enjoy knowing that she had an abortion.
