This is the session in which Taylor Austin of the Women’s Centers attended our Feminist Brunch to facilitate conversation about Reproductive Health. Her primary message was about the need for abortion access and for confidential and compassionate abortion care.
There will always be pregnant women seeking abortions, even at great personal risk. Enacting restrictive policies and laws increases the likelihood that women will suffer great consequences. And, typically minority and poor communities are disproportionately affected. Abortion is a critical aspect of healthcare and must be accessible and safe for all who need it.
