Today the NYC Feminist Zinefest is proud to present the zine “ours to tell,” edited by Elizabeth. According to Elizbeth:
Ours To Tell is a narrative project dedicated to providing a safe space for individuals to tell their first-hand stories of abortion experiences. We believe that, although the pro-choice debate has reached a household level, we still hear remarkably few stories from the individuals who actually elect to have them. There is still a stigma against women who have exercised their right to choose and have come down on the side of abortion. The strongest voice we have is our own and it will be the most crucial weapon in the war for equality, respect, and acceptance. We have the right to live in our own bodies. We have the right to love on our own terms. We have the right to sovereignty, respect, and equality.We have the right to decide our own fate. Tell your story.
Elizbeth’s bio on the project’s site reads:
Elizabeth is a feminist, vegan, urban planning student living in Detroit, Michigan. She is 26 and had an abortion when she was 15. She does not regret her decision. She regrets that other people regret her decision.
