PHOTOS: Advocating choice with community art in Port Townsend

Above, artist Judith Bird, left, helps Katherine Camacho Carr attach her contribution to “Our Lady of Choice” — a community art piece created by Bird, Margie McDonald and community members for Monday’s Port Townsend event on National Women’s Equality Day.

At the event, “Life Without Roe v. Wade” — a Supreme Court decision that found that unduly restrictive state regulation of abortion is unconstitutional — speakers included Susan Bone O’Brien of Jefferson County Public Health on access to family planning; Kate Kelly of the state Attorney General’s Office on implications if Roe v Wade is overturned; survivor stories from the days before Roe v. Wade; and a facilitated community discussion.
