Why it’s Difficult to Get an Abortion

This week I decided to do something a little different, instead of a current event in reproductive justice I chose to write about a long form piece related to this issue. Author Margaret Talbot recently wrote a piece for The New Yorker called “Why It’s Become So Hard to Get an Abortion.”

PrintLaws to restrict abortion have been proposed and passed sine Roe v. Wade made it legal in 1973.

In the piece, she talks about current abortion policies, the Trump campaign and the new book “About Abortion” by Carol Sanger. She addresses the evolution of some laws and the stigma surrounding abortion. Overall, I found the piece really informative and interesting to read.

I think it is important for people wanting to know what is going on in the world of reproductive justice to keep updated on pieces like this. It provides important history and ties it to current events.
