The Anchoress writes: ‘In the wake of the overturning of Roe v Wade there was only one song that I was ever going to tackle this month, ‘Pennyroyal Tea‘ by Nirvana – named after the herb pennyroyal that was used historically to induce abortions. I have so much anger and sadness over what is happening in America right now as a women’s autonomy over her own body is put into question. Whatever your thoughts on what is happening to reproductive rights, I hope you find some comfort in this contemplative version of a song that’s always held a lot of power for me.”

It’s a stunning rendition.
