On May 2, an initial draft majority opinion written by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito was leaked, and published by Politico. The draft proposes overruling Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision in which the Supreme Court protected the right to an abortion in the U.S.
Access to abortion is so critical for so many reasons. For people who can become pregnant, it can mean bodily autonomy. Privacy. Gender equity. The ability to continue education. The ability to pursue career goals. The power to decide if and when to grow their family. Independence. A pathway out of systemic poverty.
This collection was created in response to the events of May 2 by Sophia Moreno, a Metro-Detroit-based artist, and graphic designer. 30% of the profits earned from these pieces will be donated to the National Network of Abortion Funds. Abortion Funds not only help pay for abortions for those who can’t afford them, but also can provide travel, lodging, child care, and translation support for those who need it.
