The motif is abortion or a given life that is cast aside.

Victor: “When I thought of him, I gnashed my teeth, my eyes became inflamed, and I ardently wished to extinguish that life which I had so thoughtlessly made.”

Monster- “I, the miserable and the abandoned, am an abortion, to be spurned at, and kicked, and trampled on.”
