The Last Safe Abortion

Artist Carmen Winant’s The Last Safe Abortion, published by SPBH Editions and MACK, focuses on the nearly fifty-year period in which abortion was legal in the United States (1973–2022). Winant draws from over a dozen personal, organisational, and institutional archives from across the Midwest, in Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Kentucky, North Dakota, and Ohio. The book presents a selection of photographs from these archives, emphasizing the care and community-focused work around abortion workers, along with a text by the artist.
