Sent in by Kaitlynn Weaver, who in her photo submission stated that anti-abortion advertisements can be harmful for people who have had, or are thinking about an abortion. The costumed person pictured represents the handmaids from Margaret Atwood’s book A Handmaid’s Tale. The costumes are inspired from the TV show of the book. Photo by Kaitlynn Weaver
