Romans 8:18 - "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation of (the glory of) the sons of God to be revealed."
The word "glory" means the "true nature" or full essence of a thing. In other words, to fall short of glory means to live below your true potential in Christ.
All creation was affected by man's original sin. God's creation is waiting for man's glory or true potential in Christ to be exposed because creation's destiny is tied to man's. Thus, any abortion, whether it's the abortion of a dream, a vision, writing, or leadership affects both nature and the succeeding generations of man in God's Kingdom.
