It's been a week since the Supreme Court overturned the historic Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that protects abortion under the 14th amendment. And many of us are (rightfully so) still not over it—we won't be for a while. Probably ever.
No, considering this ruling makes safe abortions restricted or illegal for more than 135 million people across the country, disproportionally affecting people of color, low income communities, and other marginalized groups, we're pretty damn upset. It's disappointing, scary, and stressful that our health care and autonomy are still at stake. Not to mention, it's incredibly risky for other landmark human rights laws around contraception, same-sex marriage, and same-sex relationships, making us wonder, "What happens next?"
If you are...
- Stewing with anger
- Exhausted from having to fight for fundamental rights
- Scared of what the future holds
- Confused why people are so obsessed with your uterus...
Then meet the Harper Wilde "Fuck Your Laws" Bra ($50) which just about sums it up. It's the angrier, more fed-up version of the brand's signature silky-soft The Bliss Bralette ($45), and it says what we're all thinking. Best part is, 100 percent of its proceeds are being donated to the Women's Reproductive Rights Assistance Project (WRRAP), a nonprofit dedicated to helping marginalized groups get access to safe abortions and contraception, so you can literally put your money where your mouth (uh... chest?) is.
As for the bra itself, it's everything you want in a comfortable, supportive bralette. The Bliss is kitten soft, made from a stretchy, supportive microfiber fabric that swaps any cups or wires for a barely-there feel. Only this one has a not-so-subtle "Fuck Your Laws" printed on the side, a fashionable (and practical!) middle finger to the Supreme Court's decision.
But, to invoke change, you gotta walk the walk, not just talk the talk—which is exactly what Harper Wilde is doing. For a limited time, 100 percent of every "Fuck Your Laws" Bra purchased is going directly to WRRAP and helping women get the healthcare they need. It's the largest abortion fund in America, and works directly with health clinics across the U.S. to get women safe, legal access to abortions and emergency contraceptives when they can't afford it.
So, get support while throwing your support behind a nonprofit out to protect Roe. Now is the time to bolster up, literally, with a bra (or a $25 matching hat that stands for letting people make their own choices about their bodies, not some crusty, old politicians.
