Don't miss reading this gem. Kassi has a way with words and I was hooked from the first page.

Holy Cluster B, Batman. Matching tats after 2 months of dating! Yes! At the end, we hope the splitting heals, the dysfunction calms, and the loves become less disordered, but this trajectory is common in the post-abortive. Apply the arguments in this book to another human based on a different size, different level of development, different environment, and different degree of dependency and we could more easily understand why women suffer after induced abortions. 8 weeks vs. 8 years. More cells. Same person. 3 stars for quick movement/writing style, would be 2 stars for depth. Ok to skip this one if you know the post-abortive literature/journal articles or if you treat post-abortive families; you have seen similar vignettes many times before.
