Rise, Rise Again: Phoenix Facial Oil + ACLU

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. 

For the next 30 days, we’re donating $5 of every Phoenix sold (including our Mini Facial Oil Trio + Hydrate + Glow sets)!

@ADDI – Yours is a distracting point. First, it’s “your” and not “you’re.” Second, if the writer’s mother had aborted them, then another person would have written this post. The discussion at hand is the ability for a woman to make choices about their own body. This discussion is 100% about power. Right now, near full power over a woman’s body are based on decisions and policies that are passed by white men. From my upbringing and my own belief system, I am pro-life. But I came by that choice for myself, not because it was dictated to me. I know my own body. I know my own mind. No man will ever know either. And for anyone to think that a woman cannot think for themselves, that person must have a special hate for women.

What if you’re mother would have aborted you?
