An abortion kids book called Sister Apple, Sister Pig is intended for parents to explain to their children why a sibling had to be aborted. The abortion children’s book has already caused controversy since it calls the aborted baby sister a “happy ghost.” The father character even talks about the aborted sister being a pig, but cautions against that idea in case they need to “eat her fried, stewed, or baked.”
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Colorado’s abortion laws declared that a baby forcibly cut from a mother’s womb could not be considered alive, and some lawmakers called this America’s curse. But in Indiana, a woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison for feticide due to the neglect of a 25-week-old fetus.
The story of the abortion kids book follows a character named Lee who is searching for his missing sister, who might be an apple, a pig, or living somewhere in a tree.
“Lee is Papa and Mama’s only child for now, although there once was a sister,” the book begins. “Where does Sister live now?”
Lee eventually decides that his sister is a “happy ghost” based upon what his mother told him, so his father asks, “Does that make you sad or scared?” Lee then goes on to explain why it was a good thing his mother had an abortion.
“I’m not sad that my sister is a ghost! If you kept my sister, you would be tired, and sad, and mad! Because we would be wild and loud and sometimes we would fight. Mama might be scared that she could not buy enough food for us. Mama might not have enough time to read to me, to paint with me, to play with me, to talk with me.”
Walling Blackburn is the author of Sister Apple, Sister Pig and the last page ends with the author saying, “Mama, Papa, Lee, (and sister) are about to head into the late afternoon… towards home.” The author even explained the ending in these terms within a footnote.
“Lee, Sister Apple, Sister Pig’s protagonist, allays the possibility of repressed psychic distress by the active formation of an ally born of that anxiety and Lee does this without lingering in the interstitial space between pleasure and pain. Is there a political stratagem here…when sorrow and fear become light and active?”
During an interview, Blackburn stated the abortion kids book was her way of playing “chicken” with “white, evangelical anti-choice people.” According to Patheos, she refers to the aborted baby in her story as a “human animal” despite having a “ghost sister” of her own.
