"The Coathanger"

The Coathanger

There is no compassion for women in the act of banning abortion. Help women, don’t hurt them. Empower women, don’t belittle them. Support women, don’t abandon them. Really support them. Listen to them. Give them equal pay. Provide child care. Create support systems. Be kind. Men: Don't force yourself on women. Treat women with respect. In the land of the free, the home of the brave, women deserve the freedom to have choices and to make their own decisions about their own bodies.

This self portrait was created during May of 2022 when news leaked that the US Supreme Court are preparing to reverse the landmark Roe v Wade ruling that protects the rights of women to have an abortion. Reversing the clock on this law and taking away the liberty of women to make their own choices about their bodies and their lives, puts the future health of American women in danger. 

Do we really want our country to regress to a time when women, with no where else to turn, would resort to attempting self -administered terminations of their unwanted pregnancies? I should hope that nobody wants to see that happen ever, again. As a country we must do so much better for our women.
