Repercussions for Women

Just wanted to take a second to share with you this extremely compelling video from the National Advocates for Pregnant Women about some of the repercussions involved with passing anti-choice laws, including laws like the abortion ban in South Dakota. (via feministing)

Issues surrounding abortion are much more complex than I think most people realize.  This video perfectly illustrates the profound consequences that we face when we pass backsliding, anti-choice legislation.  I hope people will begin to realize that the only way to compromise on this extremely personal issue is to focus on reducing the rates of unintended pregnancy through better access to family planning and a comprehensive approach to sexual education.

There is still time to help ensure that the abortion ban in South Dakota is defeated.  Visit the South Dakota Campaign for Healthy Families to make a donation and stop the abortion ban and the backsliding of women’s rights.
