The first issue is titled: issue 1: dear doctor. Bonow dedicates this full color zine to abortion care providers. There are contributions from people, including Ellen Forney, who have had abortions, expressing their gratitude to doctors, Planned Parenthood employees, and supportive family members. There is a page with the names and faces of physicians who've lost their lives to violence at abortion clinics. It also contains a collage of pins with "shout your abortion" phrases and other affirming words. It ends with Gloria Steinem's dedication from her book My Life on the Road to her very own abortion doctor.
