I’ve been following the news on Roe vs. Wade via a few selected online friends and while it’s outside my general lane due to a lack of deep, fundamental knowledge, that doesn’t mean I can’t share information to those who might need it. So here are a few links I’ve found interesting regarding reproductive rights, abortion, and Roe vs. Wade. I will be updating this periodically.
- The History of Reproductive Rights: A Syllabus – JSTOR Daily compiled a list of stories on the history of reproductive rights and abortion “to foster dialogue inside and outside of the classroom” including the historical outlawing of abortion in America, wider thoughts on whether law can provide moral order, and the implications of Roe v. Wade on internet privacy.
- What would happen if Roe v. Wade were overturned – a Washington Post infographic examining the impact of Roe v. Wade getting overturned. As a reminder, overturning this precedent won’t blanket ban abortions in the US but it would give the power back to the individual states and many of them (particularly in the South) already have or are ready to put bans/restrictions in place alongside other heinous state laws
- Pregnant? Need Help? They Have an Agenda – From NYT: “If Roe v. Wade is overturned, more than half of American women of reproductive age will live closer to a crisis pregnancy center than to an abortion facility.”
- National Network of Abortion Funds – “The National Network of Abortion Funds builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.”
- California proposes new funding to help low-income and out-of-state abortion seekers – “Governor Gavin Newsom wants $57m for organizations offering the procedure to the uninsured and for reproductive health outreach.”
