    “All we want to do is control our own bodies.” “My body, my choice.” Comics for Choice is an important educational project, featuring comics from dozens of women (and some men) on personal experience with and institutional history of abortion in the United States. States are closing legal clinics, and the future of reproductive rights seems more in jeopardy than ever, so this seems necessary to educate a new generation about these issues.

States are closing legal clinics, and the future of reproductive rights seems more in jeopardy than ever, so this seems necessary to educate a new generation about these issues. And, importantly, the book features the stories of people from across the country, some of them told and drawn by comics artists, some of the told by women and drawn by others. It feels raw and personal, and not all one thing, all one perspective; sometimes anguished, angry, ashamed, oh, all of the emotions are here. It’s not a chronological history book, it’s a pastiche of perspectives, but it finally is a people’s—women’s—history of abortion, along the lines of Howard Zinn’s People’s History of the United States. Abortion is one of those flashpoint issues that divides us as a people, even dividing families (and this is true of my family, actually). I have this feeling only pro-choice readers will read this, just as pro-choice advocates might not read a book decidedly written from the anti-choice. I think this book challenges pre- and misconceptions, though, and that is useful in itself. The art is of course various, and the point is not that this is at the artistic level of Alison Bechdel or Chris Ware. From a comics perspective, it is important that comics are used by a range of people to tell their stories. The entries are usually very short, and often powerful. If you are raped, if you are the victim of incest, and you get pregnant, should you be able to get an abortion? This was once not possible, you couldn't legally terminate your pregnancy, and then thanks to Roe v. Wade, it has been legal for a few short decades, but now is at issue again. This book should be a part of every unwanted pregnancy decision, part of the conversation. Here's some of it, in a review: https://rewire.news/article/2017/06/2...

    I respect those who support the choice to have abortion. But as for me, who was born and raised in a Catholic and conservative country, I'm against it because not only of moral standards, but also it may lead to health complications in the future.

However, it never swayed me to change my perspective. Thanks to Alternative Comics for the reading copy.

    It took a bit longer to finish this than I expected. That's because I had to keep putting it down and walking away for a bit, either to let my emotions settle, or because the story demanded a bit of space to properly savor … As the cover promises, this is a pro-choice anthology of comics stories. Many are autobiographical. Some are historical. Some are harrowing, some empowering. All are informative and heartfelt.

Many are autobiographical. Some are historical. Some are harrowing, some empowering. All are informative and heartfelt. Having such a large and controversial subject brought out the best in these artists. I have long considered myself pro-choice, so I was favorably disposed towards this book going in. As far as its persuasiveness goes, well, I rather doubt that many pro-lifers will even read it to begin with. It's such a polarizing topic, after all. Those that do, well, it's nice to think that they’d change their minds, but most likely they’d have their resistance way up. The book's true value comes from the way it demystifies the whole concept of abortion. Reading so many personal, individual stories shows what other people's experiences were like. The feeling is that, if they could get get through it, so could I. Well, okay; I'm male, and, barring a medical breakthrough (or divine intervention,) unlikely to become pregnant in the foreseeable future. You know what I mean. Recommended!

    I generally try to avoid subject matter this depressing, but slap it into a comic book format and I cannot help inflicting it upon myself. The writing consistently displays powerful personal narratives and informative points of view though the art gets a little rough in places.

It succeeds in highlighting all sorts of different feelings around having an abortion - from being deeply impacted to seeing it as extended birth control - and tells both contemporary and earlier stories, through highly diverse identities, ranging from sexuality, gender, and ethnic identities to patients, doctors, clinic escorts, other workers, and generally people who have been impacted by reproductive rights. It has an overall good flow where subjects that are brought up in one comic is further explored in the next. so many of the stories are told by people who felt alone and like they couldn't speak about their abortion. It's amazing to see them share their stories.

    Simply wonderful. I'm so glad a book like this exists. The stigma of abortion exists as long as those who have had one, or wanted one, or tried to get one remain silent.

COmics is an art form and is therefore open to every topic. I cannot recommend this book enough.

    This is a super important collection of comics about abortion. Comics for Choice shares personal abortion stories, histories and commentaries on the politics of abortion. Each story is an important part of an open narrative about abortion, and is central to removing the stigma around the choice each of us has to determine what is right for our lives and our bodies. Required reading.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED- this is a must on your shelves understanding how abortion is a human right, a better understanding of reproductive justice, with the access to abortion from many eyes across range of identities, from being a patient to a doctor, from a POC escort to a grandmother who had an abortion before Roe vs. Wade- each story will leave you heart-touched.

    I want to buy everyone a copy. This was amazing. It's a collection of comics telling the abortion stories of several individuals. These stories are so important to share. I felt so emotional but so motivated reading this story. We have to fight against the stigma. Abortions are a necessary part of life. People need to understand this. Share these stories, stand up for these women. READ THIS BOOK. I want to buy everyone a copy. This was amazing. It's a collection of comics telling the abortion stories of several individuals.

    Oh this made me so mad! It makes me so upset that legislators and various groups of bigots are trying to take away a person's right to their own body and life by fucking with abortion rights and providers. How fucking dare you. How??? Anyway, this was a great collection of comics. The quality naturally varied and I wish the ending and beginning points of each comic had been made clearer, but overall I really enjoyed this.

    4.5/5 stars (rounded up) A fascinating and intimate look at the lives of individuals who, for varying reasons, have had an abortion. Each story was unique, and I appreciate that such a variety of individuals stepped up to tell their story. Many stories stood out in their quality, in both storytelling and art, and I found it difficult to point to one that impacted me the most/ "a favorite."

Each story was unique, and I appreciate that such a variety of individuals stepped up to tell their story. Many stories stood out in their quality, in both storytelling and art, and I found it difficult to point to one that impacted me the most/ "a favorite." However, there were several areas in which I thought the book was lacking. By the end, I felt that the book was a polished piece, but that there were some areas more effort could have been put in to make it more inclusive/ "complete": 1) Because every story featured is in comic-form, I feel that the scope of abortion experiences that could have been shared was limited. I feel that the book would have benefited had their been more writer-artist pairs, rather from writer-artists. Scientists, stay-at-home-moms, secretaries, CEOs, psychologists and therapists, grocery store clerks, individuals in the armed forces, etc. all seek/ benefit from comprehensive abortion services... so to pretty much only share stories from individuals who make their living from making art severely limited the scope of stories that Comics for Choice could have told. 2) The book makes an amazing effort to include individuals of different racial/ ethic, sexual, and gender identities, but I would have liked to see more writing/art from individuals with disabilities. I could write a whole essay on how I can interpret this, but I will concede and simply admit that I was disappointed to not see more women like myself featured. 3) Though the book contains a great deal of information on varied experiences with abortion, medical (pill) abortions, legal/ public health issues involving abortion, and medical information... I can't remember any stories that actually, clearly define how a surgical abortion works. It's always there, just under the surface, but no comic went into the details on what exactly it entails, the tools used, how it is defined medically, etc. A bizarre choice for a book that encourages empowerment through education. In all, I felt that this book was very valuable, and one that many individuals will find strength and knowledge in, but it lacked in some (I felt) very important ways. I would gladly financially support/ read a second volume should one come about. I have decided to give this book five stars (rounded up), in spite of my issues, because I felt that the sheer breadth of honesty, personal reflection, compassion, and personality featured in these individual stories makes up for the problems I found within Comics for Choice as a whole.

    This anthology is jam-packed with personal stories, informative comics (written by those working within the industry), and even a fictional sci-fi piece. As with many anthologies, there's a disparity in the art quality, but it's balanced out by the honesty and rawness of the stories.

    A mixed bag of graphic accounts of abortion stories. I feel strongly about reproductive rights and the rights of women to have control over their bodies and health, so this actually made me angry to read. More and more I'm feeling like I need to take a more active role in my beliefs, and I'm a woman who has never wanted children, whose long-term marriage ended because her husband changed his mind about wanting to become a parent, and who has never, ever, been pregnant or had an abortion.

    Beautifully illustrated by different artists, this collection of abortion stories offers a refreshingly diverse range of perspectives. Some abortions are easy. Others elicit a range of complicated feelings. "Comics for Choice" doesn't shy away from these embodied and emotional details - which gives it the potential to affirm a lot of people who don't see their experiences reflected in the media. As the National Network of Abortion Funds says, "everyone loves someone who has had an abortion."

The book would have been better served to use those preachy moments for fleshing out stories. When it was good, though, it was heart-wrenchingly great. I think my favorite story was Jane. I had never heard about them, somehow. I also appreciated the stories from the abortion doulas and escorts. It was so great to get an outside look at the problems facing our clinics. There's a lot of useful information here, and I love that it's presented in an artistic way. 3/5, would recommend.

    “The only way to remove the stigma and fear is to not be quiet about it.” — from Claudia E. Berger’s story herein. And that’s why I find myself rating and reviewing this. Most of us are pretty well set by now in our opinions, be they informed or mis, but do any of us really know much about abortion? About the absurd and agonizing restrictions enacted by the Party Of Hatred? What our mothers went through in the pre-Roe days? What a nervous young woman—even an educated one—has to face today?

The stories in this book offer many perspectives, all of them informative, all of them demonstrating different and admirable forms of courage. There’s decency, fear, shame, vulnerability, insight. The writing is good, the stories engaging. And informative: I consider myself an ally: I’ve accompanied a loved one; I’ve been a PPFA supporter for as long as I can remember; I’m snipped. Even so I found much to learn from, think about, and grow. Buy a copy for a young person in your life. And, more importantly, talk about it. Shine a light on the stigma and fear.

    I bought this at CaKE because I love graphic novels, local artists, and am pro-choice. But wow. This book surpassed my expectations. It's a brilliant mix of personal stories, historical context, and more. Facts & Feels. It will evoke ALL of the feels - justifiable anger, a bit of sorrow, but also some empowerment. The comics are so distinctly different, it feels amazing to hold this in your hands and appreciate all of the different writers and artists who worked to make their voices heard.

That is not this beautiful, informative, striking, must have of an anthology of stories that will make you giggle, sob and fill with a bubbling hot rage.

    This is a stellar collection of comics about abortion. There is a wide diversity of stories, identities, and experiences represented. There were personal stories about getting abortions, some uplifting and easy, some hard and traumatic.

It was so great to see so many different voices represented, and to read the stories of many people (mostly women, but some trans and nonbinary folks as well) getting abortions for so many different reasons, and having so many different emotions around those abortions, but all of them speaking out proudly and truthfully. There were also stories about abortion providers, clinic escorts, and young people talking with their mothers about their experiences with abortion. There were some great comics about the history of abortion access and reproductive justice. I also really appreciated how so many of these stories were not just about abortion, but about health care, access, mental health, family, relationships, identity, racial and economic justice. As a whole, the collection tells a powerful story about the importance of self-determination and having control over your own body, but also about the decisions we make in life and how they change and affect us through time. There was a lot of richness and complexity to these stories. This is one of the best comics anthologies I've read in some time. It was mostly nonfiction, although there were a few fictional stories thrown in, too. There was such a wide range of comics styles and art, and I thoroughly enjoyed every single one. This book is empowering, beautiful, honest and fierce. I cannot recommend it enough.
