Simone de Beauvoir: “The world will never be the same”

Simone de Beauvoir says that after abortion women:

“learn to believe no longer in what men say… The one thing they are sure of is this rifled and bleeding womb, these shreds of crimson life, this child that is not there. It is at her first abortion that a woman begins to “know.” For many women the world will never be the same.”

Simone de Beauvoir The Second Sex (New York: Alfred A Knopf, Inc.: Bantam Books, 1952)
