16 unnumbered pages : color illustrations Title from cover. "Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, decided on January 22nd, 1973. The Court ruled that the constitution protected the right to have an abortion, securing choice and bodily autonomy for American women. Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health, No. 19-1392, 597 U.S. nullified the precedent of Roe v. Wade on June 24th, 2022. This decision has left reproductive rights to be decided on a state by state basis, compromising the health and access on healthcare for half of the country after 49.5 years of the constitutional right to do so. The following is a musing on the shifting political and cultural icons that have had a longer liftspan than Roe v. Wade. We may want to ask ourselves why certain things have endured, and why they may not in the future."--page [2], signed by the artist. Pagination includes cover.
