I finally pinned down the recipient of proceeds from the first volume of Ours to Tell. Her name is Jennie Linn McCormack and she is suing the state of Idaho for unfairly burdening women and the poor with their restrictive abortion laws. Unfair burdening is unconstitutional under the 14th amendment, which is a fact that Idaho legislators identified even as the “fetal pain law” was being passed in their state.
This comes in addition to the fact that the state of Idaho is currently suing Jennie for unlawfully terminating her own pregnancy at home using drugs she was forced to purchase online because her region has been gutted of meaningful access to reproductive healthcare.
We would like to help pay for Jennie’s legal fees. If you haven’t bought a zine yet, please consider donating to the project.
Here’s a link to a recent Huffington Post article about her.
Take care out there,
