Our access to safe and legal abortion is being threatened with the recent anti-choice bills passed in a number of states. Reproductive justice expert, Bianca Laureano, gives us a deeper look at abortion policy & procedure in the US. In this conversation, she helps us understand harmful ways lawmakers have chipped away access to abortion and quality reproductive care with things like parental consent, approval waiting period, and the myth of the partial-birth abortion. We learn what goes into an abortion procedure and how to provide care for those going through it. Bianca breaks down the differences between the reproductive rights movement, the reproductive justice movement, and the reproductive health movement and why their differences matter. We discuss why the gendered language of the reproductive rights movement is harmful and how to be more inclusive, the real motivations behind the pro-life movement including these recent restrictive bills & laws (spoiler: it’s not about preserving life), and much more. This is an important and timely conversation.
