Lisa Link has devoted two years to a thorough and thoroughly
inventive poster series about the struggle for reproductive rights. Her
"Warnings," which draw frightening historical parallels between
Germany sixty years ago and the US today, have to be taken seriously,
have to be taken to heart and have to be taken to your neighborhood/workplace/school."
-- Lucy R. Lippard, author, activist, Z magazine columnist, 1992
