“Freedom of Choice focuses on the idea that reproductive justice should be a choice of the individual. These ideas should not be up to anyone but the person who will be personally affected. These collages play with the humor involved; while there is mostly no humor with these ideas, I am finding some therapeutic play with this process. Hopefully, these ideas will resonate with others.”
