Miss Thistle - Anatomical Art by Dunaway Smith

Imaginary Anatomy Series # 3

Every single person that has ever existed on this planet has achieved their existence thanks to the uterus. We each begin our life intimately connected with this marvelous organ. The uterus is incredibly strong (forceful enough to push out an entire baby),  incredibly flexible (it grows from the size of a pear to fill a woman’s entire abdomen, then shrinks back down again) and is the only organ that can grow another organ with it (the placenta.) Above all, the uterus literally creates human life. If that’s not worth celebrating, I don’t know what is.
