When I wrote “Female Inferno” I had no idea the topic would become a reality.

When I started and finished this dystopian book back in 2003, almost twenty years ago, a novel about the lives of women after the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, and had anyone told me this would become a reality almost twenty years later, I would have politely nodded and said, “Alrighty then.”

Female Inferno

About unholypursuit

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    It just lets states pass laws regarding abortion, per the Constitution, anything not specified is left to the states to decide. People will continue to kill their children. No worries.

    • Yes, there could be a worry, a deep worry, because an abortion is a medical procedure and if one can be told they can’t have one procedure, what is there to stop other procedures from being outlawed?

    • True, but what’s to stop people from pushing things further? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. There are some procedures being denied right now and it could save the person’s life. But if you don’t have the money to pay for it, then your life doesn’t matter.

      In the past, the insurance company wouldn’t cover preexisting conditions. Just who do you think created law to allow those companies to make those decisions?

      Tubal pregnancies and many other medical are need to be ended to save a woman’s life but in some states, it’s too bad.. It’s the idea of a liberty being taken is what most scares most people. Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

      When one liberty is taken it starts to eat away at the foundation of freedom. The erosion always start with denying one freedom and then comes many others.

        • I won’t go by what the Founding Father said and did not do because of the wish for freedom for themselves and not others.

          However they was who wrote these words: ” We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

          They didn’t specify what these rights were.

          The pursuit of happiness is defined as a fundamental right mentioned in the Declaration of Independence to freely pursue joy and live life in a way that makes you happy, as long as you don’t do anything illegal or violate the rights of others.

          What puzzle me is why people care so much about the fetuses and unborn babies, but yet doesn’t give a hoot about them once they are here. Life means from birth to death. Not just pre-birth. I see it as pious and hypocritical. These same people will frown down on a homeless person. Hey, that person was once a fetus. If people cared when he or she was a fetus then why can’t they care now that the person is out of the womb living a life? That’s why I say it’s sanctimonious.

            The Bill of Rights was written to specify those rights as James Madison believed, correctly, by not specifying them, the government could construe them any way they desired. You must have had a lot of bad experiences in life to be so jaded. I, along with many people, do a lot to help others. There are clinics helping pregnant and unwed mothers and abused women in many cities, and they couldn’t survive without the financial sacrifices of others. You are brushing the population with a broad brush based upon your worldview. Please try to seek out the good going on around you. I bet there’s a lot going on that you’re not noticing.

            • And just who did James Madison have in mind when he wrote the Bill of Rights? Only a very small percentage of population.

              Others had to be added to these rights.

              Very few things were left to be construed however someone later down the road of history decide conclude things as they should go along. It specified in saying what things are.

              Individual happiness is identified as an individual liberty, a right, not a condition of implement by others. That’s the whole backbone of the Spirit of 76′.

              The Bill of Rights was never written like a European king’s charter, where one should read it however they please and it could change upon a whim. Thankful for that.

                Frankly, I never considered myself to be jaded. I’m always straight forward with people. I don’t pretend. I’m just the kind of person who believes in looking at things from all angles, not just limited or privileged perspective. I’m capable of stretching my imagination to see something from someone else’s point of view other than my own.

                  No, my assessment of liberties being taken away is not obstructed by my world views. I don’t live in a fantasy world ruled by ideologies. That’s too dangerous in this day and age. I have been paying close attention to what’s going on around me. And when one liberty is taken, it opens the doorway for another and another to be taken, until the society is under a totalitarian rule. I’m not saying things will ever come to that extreme, but totalitarianism doesn’t happen over night unless it’s a military coup. 

                 I live in the world as it is. Not how I wish it to be. 

                 Thank you, but I have been seeking this goodness for many years and haven’t seen it yet. If you know where some goodness is I would love to find it.

              I believe in equality for all people. I do not believe in imposing my views and opinions on others. My idea of happiness may not be your idea of happiness. It would wrong for me to impose my idea on you and vice versa.

                How do you define a privileged perspective? Many people have overcome obstacles that most people are unaware of. The abortion issue was just kicked back to the states. Those who want to kill babies can still do so. Those who don’t, don’t have to endure God’s curse for shedding innocent blood. I used to be on your side till I read an article by Feminists Against Abortion. And there are abortion survivors who were not wanted, but are glad to be alive. Women should have more respect for themselves than to be playthings of men who want women to damage their bodies to escape responsibility for their behavior.

                • Let me guess, this article was written by some privileged person who maybe was once poor. All women who ends up pregnant are not presenting themselves as playthings for men. Some have issues that aren’t mentioned in any bills, because they are considered too messy to talk about. Things like incest, rape, and tubal pregnancies are just a few things having nothing to do with women being playthings. Domestic violence is often in play. Many women do not know their husband or lover is a violent man. This behavior doesn’t surface in some men until she’s pregnant. Far more miscarriages are caused by domestic violence than by any abortion.

                  Men are not blameless in creating the child. Men ‘could‘ have enough respect for themselves and the woman to not do the things they do that cause an abortion to come into the conversation. A real gentleman indeed have respect for all women whether she lower herself or not. The abortion issue is a religious belief and should not enforced on others. There is a clear separation of Church and state for this very reason.

                  You’re parroting the words of people who have no idea what they are talking about.

The book listed in this post, I wrote it from my own imagination, therefore, there was no need to read or ask anyone else anything. At the time the book was written, there was no thoughts of overturning Roe vs. Wade. No political war being waged. It’s a “What if” dystopia scenario about if it was overturned.

                      This is a great place to start if you want children who are unwanted.

I know you want to give all visitors a fair chance to express their opinion but when opinions disrespect most of humanity that is not what freedom is about. Most peoples who supported the overture of Roe vs Wade are racist and sexist as He’ll. They don’t give a rats’ rear end about the babies. It’s all about putting poor women in their ‘place‘ They would take things back to the days of The Help. No, they would take things 1840, back to slavery if they could.

            • I’m happy that you and other have helped these unfortunate women. I’m sure the women are very appreciative as well. Despite popular belief, there are far, far more births than abortions.

              I was once a caseworker in a major city and saw things that doesn’t present themselves on the evening news. I have seen what others do not see. Those who end up in shelters, transitional housing and women clinics and are helped by people like you and lot of other goodwilled people are the lucky ones. Under these few lucky ones are hundreds, if not thousands of unlucky ones. These are the ones the public do not see mainly because they don’t want to see them. Most do not have a happy end. Therefore, no report are made of them. People only want to hear happy ending stories.

              When doing “good” far too many people are very selective.

              As a caseworker I had to go out and look for help for many of these people and too often help was very difficult to find. A transitional housing building maybe able to house only 300 women and their children; while the critical housing backlog is 2,000 women and their children and when you ask the public for more money to house or support all these people all you get is a bunch of moaning about the burden of supporting them.

When that’s not the case at all if you are truthfully look at how these nations were truly built and operated for years. Some called their slavery serfdom or feudal system but they were pretty much the same thing. The person was bind to the land for life and it was passed from generation to generation.

I and most people are speaking of the early fetus state. Most women are aware they are pregnant long before the fetus develop to this point. Well, if the woman was murdered, the child is already dead unless delivered very shortly after she died.

    Recently, a 10-year-old rape victim was forced to travel from Ohio to Indiana for abortion. According to the law of her state she should be forced to bear the child. I can’t say what I would do in her situation but a ten year old is not mature enough to raise and support a child. Where will the money come from?

    Millions of rape victims do bear the child of their rapist. Some women can overcome it and love their child while some can not.

A., you don’t have to respond to people calling you jaded because you’re not racist and sexist as hell. Most people who supported the overturn of Roe want the Good Ol’ Days back. And if Minorities aren’t careful they will be pushed back into the pre-Civil Rights days. That’s what all these unnecessary police killings are all about. Polices today are worst than those in the pre-Civill Rights era.

      The book does go into the political, religious and social aspect as to why Roe was overturned. And many of the opposers are saying a lot of the same things the opposition here are saying.
