The phoenix is a fantastic creature, whose claim to fame is its cyclical regeneration. Engulfed in flames at the end of a cycle, it is each time reborn from its own ashes before cycling again.
The phoenix rises again and again, representing resilience, strength, and creative power. This creature is very special because it reminds us of our fighting spirit, the one that inspires us to revive no matter what impedes our path.
We can think of someone else who cycles and regenerates: those with wombs.
Currently, in the United States of America, we are facing challenges to our right to bodily autonomy. Legislation has recently passed that threaten reproductive choice, health, and safety, and we intend to take a stand against these challenges. That’s why we’re donating $5 for every sale of our Phoenix Facial Oil to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), an organization that works to preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.
Abortion bans disproportionately affect women of color, especially black women, who are three times more likely than white women to perish due to causes associated with pregnancy and childbirth. Young people and those who are financially challenged will also feel the effects of these bans most heavily.
The bans, which make no exception for those who’ve been raped or otherwise invaded upon without their consent, would also put doctors found guilty of administering abortion services behind bars for life. These are just a handful of reasons why abortion bans are unconstitutional and dangerous.
Most of all, we at Herbivore believe that all people deserve bodily autonomy, which is why we stand for pro-choice values.
