“I was not considered to be of any use to the colony”


SKU: N/A Category:


“Seven of us were having health checks, but I failed to recover from anaesthesia. My breathing was shallow and irregular and my condition deteriorated and I was declared dead at 3.30 pm. I was a few weeks short of my 10th birthday. I was part of a breeding group and had failed to conceive in the previous five years. They said ’Since she was a failed breeder and not a candidate for research, she would have no use in the colony’. I’m more than a number and a resource to the colony. I was a sentient being! Please don’t forget me. Please remember me and honour me with a name.”
