This poster speaks to the recent overturning of Roe versus Wade in the United States. The case that basically gave women the right to choose whether or not to have an abortion. In this poster the art element of line comes together to form the silhouette of a pregnant women. The blue arrow-like lines symbolize the voices of those on the opposing side of choice, and their attacks on the minds, voices and bodies of women. The red “X” located on the mouth area of the silhouette represents the silenced voices.
