What Happens When We Share Our Abortion Stories: Hate, Vitriol, But Also Love

No matter how anyone feels about abortion, no one deserves the abhorrent comments that are flung at women who share their stories.

Because of an article I wrote about my abortion story, people I’ve never met requested that I kill myself, get raped, die in childbirth, and be sterilized.

Yes, Abortion Is a Women’s Issue, and Yes, More Male Allies Are Welcome

In response to the recent discussion about a "bro-choice" movement, I'd like to offer a defense of continuing to talk about abortion as a women's issue, and pointers for how men can be supportive as allies within that frame.

Bridging the Generational Divide in the Struggle for Reproductive Justice

Debate over a supposed generational divide in the fight for abortion access has flared up repeatedly in recent months. Working inter-generationally is vital to the success of a movement, yet these conversations have focused on what supposedly separates generations rather than on ways of working together to win reproductive freedom for all.
