Eight to the Tenth Power is a controversial book concerning the emotions, decisions, anger, philosophies surrounding abortion and a woman's right to choose. The constant questions surrounding what might the new child have been if it had t been terminated, permeates and consumes the creation of this book. The intent is t to belittle or cast blame upon those who have chosen to abort. Rather, it is to question whether that choice somehow needs revisiting. I don't kw if a million, a billion or two billion abortions will ring an end to this procedure. I do kw that it is something worthy of discussion and reflection. As a society respectful of feeling and steeped in certain humane values, I think it is time to really pause before making the wrong choice.
