This piece focuses on the pertinent issues surrounding women’s rights to abortion. I made this piece at the time of Donald Trump’s decision to sign away the rights for federal money to be spent on women’s abortions after 6 weeks.

Inside industrial jars lie 3 crochet “womb” inspired pieces, these represent the statistic of 1 in 3 women will experience abortion in their life, the significance of the crochet and wire is the relation to back alley abortions, this is how I see the future resorting back to as millions of women have abortions every year.
