Anne Sexton was against abortion. However, she did have one. the reason
many speculate that it was to do with the fact that it was to become the
thrid child, which has deep psychological issues for her as she was the
thrid child and felt abandoned and unloved. She may have been against
abortion but due to her mental issues it over-ridded the fact she was
against them as she would never want to produce a thrid child.

What anyone chooses to discuss, here, about ANYTHING to do with the poems
subject is their business. You don't have to like or agree with it anymore
than you do the subject matter of the Poet's concern. Having said that, I
don't the point to the poem (if there is one) is really found in Sexton's
stance on abortion, but it is, as many good poems are, about a personal
experience/event - whether her's or not, it is brilliant poem - Oh,by the
way, it is written in a form know as enclosed tercets, should anyone care
about the asthetic aspects of the poem.

Whatever your personal opinions are on abortion, this is not the place to
post them. The idea of analyzing this poem is to attempt to understand the
insight of Anne Sexton on that practice and even to see what kind of an
effect this poem may have had with the rest of society.

What scares me is that most of these comments by folks against abortion
which have missed the point completely and are using this as evidence that
Anne Sexton hates abortion, are so poorly thought out, punctuated, and
spelled that it makes me weep a little. These are the people procreating;
these are the people getting stupidly knocked up (whoops how'd that happen,
he pulled out!?).
