Herbal Remedy by Joan Dreyer, 2022
In 2022, legal access to abortion in the United States became more limited for the first time in decades. “Herbal Remedy” portrays herbs and plants that have been used to induce abortions. While beautiful to look at, there is a high risk of morbidity and mortality when these herbs and plants are ingested. The consequences of ingestion included organ failure, poisoning and even death. “Herbal Remedy” is a testament to our cultural and global indifference to women’s suffering.
