I don’t understand the one with the hanger, but otherwise this is awesome

Before abortion was legal in the United States, women often turned to dangerous illegal abortions. One way an illegal abortion was commonly done was by taking a wire hanger and using it to scrape out the inside of the uterus. Obviously this procedure was very very dangerous and many women died because of it. The wire hanger has since become a symbol for the pro-choice movement and it’s commitment to never go back to the time of illegal abortions.
