Destigmatizing Abortion Through Language

Destigmatizing Abortion Through Language

Tuesday, September 6, 2022

6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (Virtual)

The truth is having an abortion is common. Data shows that nearly 1-in-4 American women have an abortion by the time they're 45 -- we also know that people of all genders access abortion care. So why can it be so hard to talk about?

In this interactive training, we'll have an honest discussion about how abortion stigma impacts our lives and learn strategies to talk about abortion and how changing our language can help chip away at the stigma around this fundamental right.
