Finished my zine!!

16 Oct

I have been working on this zine for MONTHS! and I am finally, finally finished. The zine is called “How to get an abortion without telling your parents.” It’s pretty thick because I included as much information as I could. The layout is as follows:

Why I’ve put together this zine (Laws in each state regarding abortions are tricky, especially for minors who don’t want to involve their parents/guardians in their choice to have an abortion. I wanted to create a comprehensive guide on how to navigate those laws in each state, as well as how to come up with the money for your abortion and how to take care of yourself afterward)

My personal story about trying to access abortion services as a minor

From oh shit I’m pregnant to thank god that’s over – the steps:

     1. Morning after pill vs. Abortion pill vs. Clinic abortion – how do I know which one I need?

     2. What are the laws in your state

     3. How do I find a clinic

     4. Navigating the judicial bypass procedure

     5. Paying for your abortion

     6. What to expect the day-of

     7. Aftercare

I would like to make this zine widely available. My plan thus far is to send copies to various distros and infoshops to see if they’d be interested in carrying it. I also intend to leave around various places when I travel, and I’m thinking of putting it online as well. Any other thoughts for how I can get this around?

    Woah, awesome idea. I would say all feminist distros would carry this (are there any non-feminist distros?) also etsy. Make sure to send copies to Bluestockings in NYC and other radical bookshops that carry zines.

      Thanks Bani, that’s great advice! I don’t know why I didn’t think of Etsy. Bluestockings is also a great idea!
