Poster has black ink printed on white paper. Across the top is "The Mother" in a speech bubble, which continues down the top center, filled with text from a poem about abortion. The speech bubble is coming from the lips of an African American woman at the right with her fist raised. At the bottom of the poster are illustrations of figures - a pregnant woman with a young child, a knife-weilding man, a yelling figure, a cluster of three heads, two mouths screaming and a hand holding a book with a cord that leads to a fetus.
