Comics for Choice is anthology of comics about abortion. As this fundamental reproductive right continues to be stigmatized and jeopardized, over sixty artists and writers have created comics that boldly share their own experiences, and educate readers on the history of abortion, current political struggles, activism, and more. Lawyers, activists, medical professionals, historians, and abortion fund volunteers have teamed up with cartoonists and illustrators to share their knowledge in accessible comics form.

Comics for Choice contains comics from exciting cartoonists like Sophia Foster-Dimino (Sex Fantasy), Leah Hayes (Not Funny Ha-Ha), Anna Bongiovanni (Grease Bats), Jennifer Camper (Rude Girls and Dangerous Women), Ally Shwed (Sex Bomb Strikes Again) and Kat Fajardo (Gringa!La Raza Anthology), and reproductive justice scholars like Rickie Solinger, (Reproductive Politics: What Everyone Needs to KnowRenee Bracey Sherman (Program Director, We Testify), and Dr. Cynthia Greenlee (Senior Editor, Rewire).

Reviews

The stories by each of these creators are deeply affecting, some are heartbreaking, some are relatable, but all are instantly connected . . . an excellent anthology that should be read by all, regardless of your political or philosophical ideology.

Art has long been used to raise awareness about social issues, including abortion, and Comics for Choice is an important inclusion in that canon . . . Most important, Comics for Choice allows women to speak freely about their experiences, and hopefully, spark the public conversations that have long been silenced.

The book is at once a rallying cry, a tender lament, and song of liberation that will resonate long after the final page is turned. (Publishers Weekly)

The comics collected showcase a wide range of abortion experiences from a diverse array of voices: trans voices, older voices, activist voices―relatable voices." (Kat Overland http://womenwriteaboutcomics.com/2017/06/14/choosing-comics-choice-interview-editor-hazel-newlevant/)
