The Sorensen Monologues

Holiday Harangue

This cartoon is about the Texas abortion case in which 31 year-old mother of two Kate Cox had to flee the state to end a non-viable pregnancy that threatened her ability to have children in the future and possibly her life. I’ve been thinking lately about how extreme things have gotten, and how if you’d told me about some of these developments back in the ’90s, I’d have been skeptical. Also, there is this flawed idea that abortion is a “cultural” issue that is secondary to real, “material” concerns, like the economy, which I find infuriating because it doesn’t get much more real than your own body, or having to financially support a whole new human being.
