These posters are appearing all over Prince Edward Island, home of the beloved fictional character, and her creator, Lucy Maud Montgomery.

The work of anonymous activists tweeting under the handle @iamkarats, the posters call on Premier Wade MacLauchlan to ensure the reproductive rights of the island’s residents. Currently, PEI women seeking an abortion must travel to one of Canada’s other provinces, an option that is not economically feasible for everyone. A group called Abortion Access Now is seeking a court order to compel the provincial government to make safe and legal (and government-funded!) abortions available to everyone. But in the meantime, Anne Shirley is ON IT.
