I have a new poem, “Wading in the Roe,” published in this anthology.
The book is available now on Amazon in Kindle and Paperback. The book was prepared in response to the courts ending of rights recognized by the Roe V. Wade decision.
The book is forty-nine uplifting works from Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, Jane Yolen, Jim Wright, Adam-Troy Castro, Samantha Bryant, Marleen S. Barr, Eileen P. Kennedy and more.
This book is not pro-Abortion, but about CHOICE.
Choice is the Soul of Liberty.
Choice is the Heart of our Democracy.
Choice is the bane of autocrats, of theocrats.
Forty-nine years ago, the Supreme Court recognized Choice as a fundamental liberty.
Autocrats and theocrats have been fighting back ever since. With the overturn of Roe v. Wade, they think they have won.
B Cubed Press, in celebration of forty-nine years of Choice, introduces forty-nine stories to show that Choice cannot be eradicated.
It emerges stronger. People demand Choice, not just in reproductive rights, but in our lives.
And we are many.
We are those who believe that the sanctity of our bodies is our own and not the playground of those who would make us extensions of their religious fervor.
We put this book together because it is up to all of us to speak out against oppression of any of us.
We are all victims, today or tomorrow, of the unfettered consequences of the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Failure to fight back on behalf of the women affected today, means no one will be there to fight back tomorrow.
So stand up, speak out, and fight back.
Because Women’s Rights are indeed… Human Rights.
Part of the Proceeds from the sale of the book go to the American Civil Liberties Union.
Congratulations. Your poem is riveting and heartbreaking.
Thanks for making me aware of this book. Just ordered it.
