Artist Statement:

This watercolor art piece is of Harriet, a later-term aborted baby who was discovered by Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising activists in March 2022. Harriet is suspected to have died from an illegal abortion method, as she had an incision on the back of her neck, and her abortionist, Ceasar Santangelo, has admitted that he would deny medical care to newborns who survived their abortions. This is important to me as medical records demonstrate over a hundred babies have been left to die after surviving abortions in Canada. Harriet’s one open eye pleads for us not to look away, but to raise our voices for justice for all the babies who are exterminated as “medical waste.”
