Life Issue: "Her Dark Love"


Even ghosts have their life issues, too 

"Her Dark Love" is a ghost story about a woman who killed her love rival's baby (in the womb) in her previous life. Between the roles of a woman, a hopeless lover, a jealous wife, and finally a killer and a liar, she showed how dark love could be.

But a ghost couldn't show us how to draw a line between life and death. If she had killed her own unborn baby in her own womb, she might claim many legal or practical reasons in the human realm; but since she used poison to "kill" (abort) another woman's unborn baby, that's another story.

She ended up being reborn as a mother-ghost, gave birth to 500 baby-ghosts and ate them all, one by one. Eating is another way of killing even for ghosts. Ghosts also suffer the pain of life and death; one can never be a ghost forever.

It was not easy for her...

How could she say something like "pro-right" or "pro-life" when eating her own ghost-babies out of hunger and karma? Did she really have a choice? What kind of choice ? What if those 500 babies all had different ghost-fathers? Could the father-ghosts establish something like "angry fathers' club" and protest? Or they just didn't care, since the ghost-babies had never been in their ghost-bodies anyway?
