After a year of fighting for abortion rights, we’re using the holidays to celebrate our collective resistance, resilience, and to take time for restoration and healing. While we can’t escape capitalism (yet), we can use the holidays to show our support for issue areas we’re passionate about, like reproductive justice and abortion access!
As your friendly neighborhood abortion provider, the carafem team has put together a gift guide for your abortion badasses and repro besties — or for yourself. This year, ditch the hanger inspired gifts and gendered language that excludes trans people. This holiday season we’re sharing a few of our favorite radically inclusive reproductive justice inspired gifts!
1. Pro-Abortion Art
This artwork by Micah Bazant would be a beautiful way to show your support for people who have had abortions. The phrase, “Everyone Loves Someone Who Had an Abortion,” comes from abortion storyteller, activist, and We Testify founder, Renee Bracey Sherman. As an added bonus, the profits from sales will benefit another independent abortion provider, Partners in Abortion Care.
Want more pro-abortion artwork options? Check out the Liberal Jane store for art and accessories by Caitlin Blunnie, a queer reproductive justice artivist.
2. Funding Abortion is Hot Girl Shit Fanny Pack
This fanny pack is perfect for all your sexual and reproductive health needs, like carrying around condoms, birth control, and abortion pills! Being a hot girl is a state of mind and a way of life, and funding abortions is absolutely doing hot girl shit. But don’t just take it from us, take it from the Hot Girl herself — Megan Thee Stallion is unapologetically pro-choice, saying, “My Body, My Mothaf*cking Choice.” Plus, this fanny pack is sold directly from an abortion fund, so you know your purchase will help finance someone’s abortion. We know that’s right🔥
Want another option, or just another fanny pack? The National Network of Abortion Funds has a Fund Abortion Build Power holographic, iridescent fanny pack and this is the last chance to get it! Sadly, the fanny pack is being discontinued so grab one while you still can.
3. Glittering Abortion Accessories: Fund Abortion hair pin
For the abortion funder in your life, what better way to spread the word about supporting abortion funds than with these rhinestone Fund Abortion hair pins from the National Network of Abortion Funds. Funding abortion has never been so glamorous!
Coming up with enough gifts for one person to show them how much you care can sometimes be difficult. Let the activist hub The Outrage take away the stress for you with this Reproductive Justice Gift Box! Complete with four separate gifts, this is the perfect bundle! Or if you’re on a budget, individual items from the box like the ASL Pro-Choice Sticker Pack make great stocking stuffers.
Contents include: My Body My Choice Unisex Tee; Boob Print Makeup Pouch; ASL Pro-choice Sticker Pack; Elephant In The Womb Button
5. Reproductive Justice Books
Whether you’re a bookworm deep into BookTok or a casual reader looking to build your personal library, these reproductive justice and abortion-related books are a great addition to anyone’s coffee table. This is also a great way to support your local bookstore in your community!
Our top favs are:
- Reproductive Rights as Human Rights: Women of Color and the Fight for Reproductive Justice; by Zakiya Luna
- You’re the Only One I’ve Told: The Stories Behind Abortion; by Meera Shah
- Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty; by Dorothy Roberts
- Shout Your Abortion; edited by Amelia Bonow and Emily Nokes
6. Abortion Jewelry saying Fuck Dobbs
With these jewelry pieces, you’ll be destigmatizing abortion in style. The Fuck Dobbs necklace in 14k gold is both stunning and educational. The Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court decision this summer overturned Roe v. Wade and federal protections for abortion access. That makes this necklace the perfect Fuck Dobbs and Fuck SCOTUS statement piece! Or you could go for other cute jewelry pieces from Shout Your Abortion, like an Abortion Necklace or Mife & Miso Earrings.
7. Feminist Porn and Sex Toys
Part of being pro-abortion and reproductive justice is encouraging pleasure, fun sexual exploration, and paying sex workers and for your porn! This holiday season, consider buying a fun sex toy or some ethical, feminist porn to really show your appreciation for that special someone.
You could buy a subscription from your favorite Only Fans creator, or subscribe to a feminist porn website like the very NSFW Bellesa Plus, Dipsea Audio Erotica, or CHEEX, which pair sexual education with pleasure.
One toy we’re been reaching for lately is the Bellesa Air Vibe with that “O”-so-good dual clit suction and g-spot vibrator. Or any other toy from the Bellesa Boutique!
We’re also happy to share a 50% off code at Adam & Eve. Just use “CARAFEM” at checkout for 50% off of your festive fun!
We can’t make a holiday gift guide without plugging the amazing abortion merch yours truly launched this year! carafem’s merch combines beautiful artwork with rad slogans from Abortion is Healthcare and Power to the Abortion Pill to Freedom to Choose and Free the Uterus. Check out all the options at carafem’s Store
