Scribble Faster #2 -Megan Gerrity

Mine #2: An Anthology of Reproductive Rights – Merrydeath Stern
“Merry Death has compiled another emotionally stunning collection of women’s stories dealing with clinical abortion, childbirth, forced sterilization, RU486, herbal abortion, illegal abortion, contraceptives, and more. It’s difficult subject matter that will no doubt evoke an emotional response.
