As true reading lovers, we are always on the lookout for more anything written about abortion, and both You or Someone You Love and Deep Care were wonderful books published this year. In this beautiful reflection of what it means to collectively achieve reproductive freedom and take care of each other, Hannah Matthews wrote what can only be called a heartfelt love note to abortion seekers, providers, and doulas. Meanwhile, Deep Care is an in-depth following of the work of community abortion providers starting in the 1970s, and their commitment and fight to care for their communities regardless of the law.
Slapping pro-abortion stickers on just about everything we own (journals, water bottles, laptop cases, etc) is certainly our love language. To elevate stickers as a holiday gift, we put together the perfect abortion access and education DIY sticker pack for you by combining a pre-made sticker sheet from I Need An A with these stickers from artist Sarah Epperson! There’s even a sticker Sarah made in collaboration with Plan C Pills to help spread awareness about abortion pills by mail.
6. Pro-Abortion Art Prints
Supporting your fav pro-abortion artists also means your home or office can be as beautiful and bold as your support for abortion access ✊We’ve long known that Frog and Toad are gay icons, but did you also know they’re pro-abortion icons too?! This print from Sanna Legan is the perfect gift for the pro-abortion frog to your toad this holiday season. Liberal Jane, aka Caitlin Blunnie, a queer reproductive justice artivist, knows that all of our rights are entwined, and the fight for reproductive justice is a collective struggle.

10. Radical Abortion Sweatshirts
As we enter the winter months, these sweatshirts will keep you cozy while you’re volunteering as an abortion clinic escort, during an at home medication abortion, or during an in-office abortion! With proceeds benefiting either ACCESS: A Podcast About Abortion or the Abortion Fund of Ohio, you or your loved one will be warmed by the thought that their gift is supporting abortion access!
Last but certainly not least, you can also make a donation to carafem in honor of a friend or loved one. One time donations will support our efforts to provide high-quality, compassionate abortion care both online and in person. Setting up a monthly donation can help carafem even further sustain this urgent work. As more people lose access to abortion care in their communities and as attacks on abortion seekers and providers intensify, carafem is working diligently to expand abortion access and increase the quality of care. Donations to carafem are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
We hope this gift guide will offer you inspiration! Wishing you radical, joyful, restorative, and pro-abortion holidays from your friends at carafem💞
