Examining the Loneliness of the Abortion Patient
May 29, 2007
Over the weekend Alternet published an article about the sense of isolation many women feel when facing an unwanted pregnancy and the decision to obtain abortion care. Unlike women in the 1970s who felt “entitled” to have a safe, legal abortion, patients today are highly aware of the stigma surrounding their choice. The article goes on to address the challenges of the reproductive justice movement and the divide in access to contraception and abortion for low-income women in America.
