Abortion: Stories Women Tell Review - AVClub

AVClub: Advocates against abortion in the United States have so far been unsuccessful at overturning the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, and re-criminalizing the procedure nationwide. But over the past decade especially, the pro-life movement has made significant progress at the state level, by adding waiting periods and restrictions that have simultaneously reduced the number of clinics and have made it increasingly difficult for patients to get treated. More importantly, protestors and politicians have largely controlled the conversation surrounding abortion, making it so that even after women weigh their decision carefully and jump through all the regulatory hoops, they’re made to feel ashamed. The result is that those who’ve made the choice are less willing to talk about it openly—which in turn has led to those who are following in their footsteps feeling isolated and embarrassed.

The story is too old to be commented.
