Comics for Choice
Hazel Newlevant, editor (anthology)

Adult; Comics/Graphic Novels; (Market)

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.
Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood

"Since Roe v. Wade was decided by the US Supreme Court in 1973, maintaining the right to abortion has been hard fought. In a time when reproductive rights are under attack, Comics for Choice is a truthful narration of what often gets lost—the history of abortion and the lived experiences of women and people who need abortion." 

Kat Overland, Women Write About Comics

"The comics collected showcase a wide range of abortion experiences from a diverse array of voices: trans voices, older voices, activist voices — relatable voices."

Pia Peterson, Bitch Media

"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.

Robin Stevenson, author of Pride: Celebrating Diversity & Community

"A wonderful book—informative, moving, engaging, inspiring. I loved it."

Yamani Hernandez, Executive Director, National Network of Abortion Funds

"We’re not at all surprised that the book was in such high demand, because people everywhere need and want to see abortion stories in all of their complexity, nuance, and truth. This is how cultural change happens.”
