The work in this anthology is truly a preservation of history—these poems, reactions, and confessions encapsulate the reaction from the complete disregard for reproductive rights and bodily autonomy in the United States. More importantly, these words come from a place of pain and experience. Each piece has delved deep into the lives of writers and has allowed them to come from a place of truth – which is just the spark of this revolutionary work. Their call to action is a beacon for all of us to listen to and stand for. This is a scary and pivotal moment in history, and the truth deserves to be preserved – by a source that honors the sanctity of those who are brave enough to share their own. We are not in the business of covering up, directing, or altering these stories in order to fit our own narrative; we are in the business in letting these poems and poets speak for themselves. May their work raise hell, spread brutal truth, and cultivate change.
