Abortion Is a Real Experience, Not a Political Tool

Originally published on Emphathize This and cross-posted here with their permission.

The use of abortion as a political tool is a long-standing feminist issue that we must continue to take seriously.

This comic addresses how taking people’s stories away from them to use as political fodder is hurtful, irritating, and ignorant.

We reserve the right to discuss our own lived experiences of abortion in order to spread truth, rather than fear-mongering.

With Love,
The Editors at Everyday Feminism
