Writers on Abortion
We are in a moment when the legitimacy of Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to have an abortion is under attack in every corner of political and social discourse. A book sharing and defending women’s abortion experiences could not be timelier or more important for the movement for reproductive justice. More and more people identify as feminists and this book contributes to our feminist catalogue by specifically addressing abortion and reproductive freedom when they are most at the forefront of the feminist movement in this country. Choice Words has been supported by a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $17,000 to not only publish the book but also donate copies for clinics in states where abortion rights are most under attack in the current anti-choice political climate. There will also be new material commissioned for this collection and supported by the Kickstarter funding. Through the Kickstarter campaign marketing work has already been done and word has spread about the anthology and its contributors. This campaign has created a strong foundation for publicity for the book moving forward.
