Second part of our abortion episode! What's so interesting about NYC for Abortion Rights is the idea of getting off our terrain and onto theirs. Anti-abortion activists are really comfortable outside our clinics. We should see that as a tactical failure.

Abortion restrictions essentially compel *poor* women to carry unwanted pregnancies. If they had more money, or lived in a different zip code, they wouldn't have to.

A lot of what Dr. Parker shows is that it's poor women who suffer most under abortion restrictions: it's hard to get money together, take off work, get child care, travel, etc. has shown how lack of abortion access can keep women in poverty

"Free abortion on demand" sounds radical somehow, but what is fucking deranged is trying to force women to give birth whether they want to or not. Millions of women are basically living post-Roe now. We don't have to guess at what this will look like.

Some purely good news! This book is so valuable and unique (not to mention gorgeous) and impossible to put down. There is no documentation of the Syrian war like this. And it's a rare sort of international collaboration as well. I'd really really really recommend it.
