Later Abortions: Why Progressives Must Talk About Them in 2020

Later Abortions: Why Progressives Must Talk About Them in 2020

Session Type(s): Panel

Anti-abortion extremists have enormously influenced how Americans talk about abortions later in pregnancy. Manipulative, inaccurate terms like partial-birth abortion distort how even pro-choice progressives perceive the procedure, creating ambivalence and even support for restrictions that have a devastating impact on those seeking this care, particularly poor women and people of color. With abortion bans sweeping across states and the most significant abortion case soon to be decided by the Kavanaugh Supreme Court, 2020 is a critical moment to examine what later abortion is, what the impact of barriers to care have on patients, and how we can most effectively fight for access for all.
