AbstractThis paper includes a narrative intended to allow readers to embody a kind of ‘pregnancy panic’ often overlooked in the politics of reproductive rights. In an issue revolving around the biological anatomy of the person, their own feelings, needs, and experiences are not often weighed in the arguments. Through this narrative’s character, readers can reconnect to the humanity of fear and bridge a better understanding that abortion is not a gleeful murder but a necessity for survival and medical agency.

The reactionary movement spawned by the deregulation of the uterus: the Christian conservative legal movement’s decades-long battle in response to RoeGasparian, Mary A. (2020-12)The debate on the right to choose has become one of the most polarizing issues within American law and politics. Since the landmark decision ofRoe v. Wade (1971), the conservative legal movement has been looking for ways to overturn it and began to find its niche in the 1980s, only after the liberal legal movement dominated largely from the 1960s through the 1970s. Shortly thereafter, the conservative legal movement gained momentum and the pro-life movement found where it belonged. This research will address how the Christian right has been able to efficiently mobilize to incrementally challenge the right to choose and the organizational tactics behind this movement. The relative successes of the conservative legal movement can be attributed to a vast network of attorneys, donors, academics, and elected officials. The influence of dark money groups will be discussed in regards to abortion rights in the United States, as well. Given the current trajectory of the conservative legal movement, it appears that the right to choose will likely remain intact, but will face difficult challenges in the near future.
Abortion: Silencing of Women’s ExperiencesStanton, Molly; The College at Brockport, State University of New York (2013-07-28)The abortion debate, most known for drastic use of the terms “pro-life” and “pro-choice”, is visible throughout the media. Slogans tend to target those considering abortion in varying negative and positive manners. Laws and language play a large part in skewing and silencing women’s voices, decisions and experiences. Without capturing and understanding that women live very different lives, the abortion debate may remain silent of women’s voices. My research seeks to discover why women have abortions, how they are judged and by whom, and where their voices get lost.
Little Songs of Long Ago: A Concoction of New and Old VerseKelsey, Mel; The College at Brockport (2012-08-21)“Little Songs of Long Ago” offers commentary on reproductive rights, specifically abortion, by co-opting traditional children's nursery rhymes for satirical purpose. This is an attempt to exaggerate the juvenile status given to women seeking to make their own reproductive choices. In consideration of the multitude of proposed State bills seeking to limit the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, women's autonomous roles to make reproductive choices for themselves is challenged.
