The Ouroboros Collection -Intro-

The Ouroboros Collection is a name I've chosen for a series on reasons and considerations on the abortion debate. Traditionally, the Ouroboros is a symbol used to represent the cycle of life, the yin-yang of the Tao, or alchemy.

I am repurposing this symbol. Instead of representing a cycle of life, light and dark, and whatever several other cultures use it to represent, I christen it the cycle of death. As the snake seeks life by devouring its own tail, it consigns itself to an inevitable death.

So I believe our society's acceptance of abortion inevitably leads to death and destruction even as we claim to seek a more productive and convenient life through its practice.
