About Keep Our Clinics:
In the last six years, nearly a third of all independent abortion clinics have been forced to close their doors—greatly diminishing access to essential health care in America. Independent abortion clinics are often located in small towns, rural areas, and politically hostile states, and may be the only abortion providers in their state or region. The #KeepOurClinics campaign is rallying support for the independent abortion providers that care for our communities. When you preorder Deep Care, you will be supporting this campaign with a small contribution—but you can also make a direct donation here.
Praise for Deep Care:
“This is a fearless and necessary work of history keyed to the dangerous days we live in. Deep Care draws on the deep wisdom of those who have been long in the struggle to defend bodily autonomy and radical self-determination. To transmit that knowledge across the generations is itself an act of revolution. Read this book—but more importantly, use this book. We all need to be down for the cause, more deeply now than ever.” —Susan Stryker, author of Transgender History: The Roots of Today’s Revolution
“An important record of the secret history of how an eclectic gathering of women poets, musicians, community-based health care workers, grassroots activists, and visionary volunteers created underground abortion service provision in Oakland and fought to defend clinics as Roe v. Wade was won and then eroded. Reminds and inspires us to see the treasure of creative collective solutions.” —Sarah Schulman, author of Let the Record Show: A Political History of ACT UP New York, 1987–1993
“A well-researched historical book documenting that women will do whatever is necessary—legally or illegally—to control their bodies. A much-needed deep examination of the intersections of white supremacy, misogyny, and class not often offered in books about abortion politics … Certainly worth the read and should be taught in every Gender and Women's Studies course.” —Loretta Ross, co-founder of SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective and MacArthur Fellow
“Deep Care is a passionately researched, intimate look at the real work feminists did on the ground to create a standard of health care for people who need abortions. I felt so tremendously inspired learning about these grassroots champions and so grateful for both their dedication and for Angela Hume’s telling of their story.” —Michelle Tea, author of Knocking Myself Up: A Memoir of My (In)fertility
“Providing a roadmap and a radical vision, Angela Hume’s Deep Care holds up the truest meanings of bodily sovereignty and community self-reliance, crucial concepts as we face the consequences of recent Supreme Court decisions and the fact that Roe v. Wade was never enough.” —Rickie Solinger, co-author of Reproductive Justice: An Introduction and co-editor of Fighting Mad: Resisting the End of Roe v. Wade
