'You'd be destroying what makes it special' she said, 'It's the Joshua tree's struggle that gives it its beauty'”.

In a simile, she compares gardening to “boxing… The wins versus the losses” (Hudes 16). Through this comparison, Hudes conveys Ginny’s deep desire for a sense of control and success in her life. This desire is fed by the memory of her father, who was only bearable when he was gardening. Specifically, the assertion of this desire for control is evident as she recalls that her father “was a mean bastard…” but “became a saint if you put a flower in his hand” (Hudes 15). From those experiences of dealing with her father, a psychological analogy between nature and peace was instilled in Ginny’s mind at a young age, and is what she relies on as an adult to handle her emotional trauma.

Mama is always hoping that the plant will pull through and survive. She feels the same way for her family. She hopes that they will be able to move into a new house with a garden and live a better life. “…Big Walter used to say, he’d get right wet in the eyes sometimes, lean his head back with the water standing in his eyes and say, ‘Seem like God didn’t see fit to give the black man nothing but dreams – but He did give us children to make them dreams seem worth while.’”(Act 1, Scene 1; 47). This proves that Mama wanted the best for her family.
In the 1950’s, the first birth control pill was created by Margaret Sanger as an attempt to combat unsafe forms of abortion. Unfortunately, with the creation of proper birth control came the creation of the stigma around its use. This stigma is ending the lives of women all around the world.

Women were only permitted to have abortions if their life or health was in jeopardy. Connecticut's law on abortion served as a precedent for other states to follow. By 1965, all 50 states had laws that considered abortion a criminal offense (“Abortion” 3). However, women still sought out illegal abortions, which were extremely dangerous. As the Women’s Rights Movement gained traction in the 1960’s, feminists began lobbying for abortion
