The first issue of Our Truths, the pro-choice 'zine about some aspects of the emotional aftermath of abortion--the part where you feel very good about yourself, perhaps with that occasional moment of sentimental sadness that also makes you feel good about yourself--is now online.

It has very high-quality production values. The financial sponsors are abortion clinics, acknowledged in charming little ads and a "thank you" list.

What it reminds me of is one of those 4-page supplements for anti-depressants in women's magazines. You're reading along, and all of a sudden you come to a page that has slightly different production values than the rest of the magazine, a softer focus, several short and tender and on-message articles about some women whose life improved after they started taking Zoloft, and when you look up at the top of the page it says "advertising supplement".

Update: You'll want to read what Naaman has to say.
