This image is one of the most powerful pro-choice images I’ve ever seen. When I saw it in the newspaper I immediately cut it out and hung it on my wall.
This is not my image. I’m using it with permission from Arthur Newspaper.
The sad part is a lot of people don’t even understand what the hanger represents. Awful.
For anyone who doesn’t know, coat hangers used to be used by women when they performed their own abortions, due to either abortion being illegal or the stigma attached to getting an abortion. This is a really powerful message. It shows that pro-choice will mean that women don’t have to resort to unsafe methods of abortion.
