This perspective is vastly different from the girl’s as indicated by her reactions. Through understanding the context the girl seems to have made a connection to nature which leads her to value her pregnancy and the baby. Also at the same time, due to this connection that she has made, her background has also influenced her to negatively think about abortion. Interpellation impacts this because it can lead readers to believe that all women must feel this way about each topic even if they personally feel a different way. How a reader feels about the each character also depends on the treatment of each throughout the story.

    The most common filter the censor board in India uses is that of “morality”. People argue for and against being on moral grounds without even understanding what is morality. Who defines morality?
