The Stunning Book That Teaches Children That Abortion Is Ok: ‘Sister Is a Happy Ghost’

A children’s book available for free on e-flux.com covers a controversial subject matter in a fairly eye-popping way.

The book is “Sister Apple, Sister Pig” from Mary Walling Blackburn, and the topic is abortion. Specifically, it uses a young child to defend the procedure.

The 33-page picture book tells a story of a young boy being taught that his sister, who was aborted before he was born, is still around him as a ghost, or an apple, or perhaps even a pig — and is “happy” because of it.

The story follows 3-year-old Lee as he and his father discuss his unnamed older sister, whom Lee sees as a ghost sitting by his side as dad and mom read stories to him. The young boy believes his sister is a ghost because “she lived before me, but Mama couldn’t keep her. Mama says she is a ghost.”

Lee and his father have an exchange where the young boy tells his “papa” that if his older sister hadn’t been aborted, his parents would have a hard time. “You would be tired, and sad, and mad!”

The father wonders why the child thinks his parents would be tired, sad and mad?

Lee explains, “Because we would be wild and loud and sometimes we would fight.” The story continues with the boy expressing his concerns about food for the family, “Mama might be scared that she could not buy enough food for us.”

Lee points out that another child could have robbed him of quality time with his mother: “Mama might not have enough time to read to me, to paint with me, to talk with me.”

Before the story wraps up with a family craft session to make a superhero costume for Lee, the boy’s uncle joins the conversation about his ghost sister.

When the uncle asks, “Why is your sister a ghost, Lee?”

The boy responds, “Mama had an abortion before she had me,” then reassures his uncle by saying, “Sister is a happy ghost!”

The author of the book, Mary Walling Blackburn describes herself as an “artist, activist, teacher, writer, feminist,” on her faculty biography page for Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts where she is employed as an assistant professor of art.

Speaking about the book, Blackburn described it as “‘Playing chicken’ with the anti-choice people.”

In addition to her e-books, Blackburn has created artwork she exhibits around the country. Blackburn’s recent art exhibit in San Antonio’s Sala Diaz exhibition space, called “Anti-Fertility Garden,” also featured a reading from “Sister Apple, Sister Pig.”

Blackburn did not return a request for an interview to discuss the book.

  1. Does anyone else enjoy being this misled? This is not a children’s book written or marketed for children. I think the whole point of Mary Wallis Blackburn’s book that was written for adults in children’s book format may have gone over a few heads. And if not, its great fodder to stir up controversy and make money on it. Written about the book “Thus, we do not properly learn about abortion, and this story reframes the visual politics of this charged topic. Walling Blackburn challenges the religious Right’s positivistic assertion that the image of the bloody fetus—the child at its most literal deathpoint—activates understanding and salvation. The fetus here is neither living nor dead; it resides neither inside the uterus nor in bloody repose on a pro-life poster. Instead of an image of death, Walling Blackburn invites us to observe “the fetus” as constant deflection and change. It is a lateral image, a shifting presence: in short, an undeath” Katie Anania
