A woman has been sentenced to eight years in prison for having self-administered an abortion within a week of her due date. Was she wrong to do it? Plus, the secret origin story behind my hard-line pro-choice stance.
I’m a disabled person, and I actually wholly support prenatal screening and full access to prenatal care, because I think it can result in healthier pregnancies and better outcomes for both pregnant people and infants.
I received a lifesaving abortion from a team of highly professional, skilled, and compassionate health care providers. Everyone, everywhere, should have access to the level of care I had at all times and in all situations, no questions asked.
