We are Arts4Choice. We are artists and activists who firmly believe that every woman should have the right to a timely abortion on demand, no questions asked. We also believe that no woman should be made to feel fearful or ashamed for having exercised her right to reproductive freedom.

We want people to see the real faces of reproductive choice in Canada. We want to show Canadians that women who have had abortions are their mothers, sisters, neighbours and friends.
