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.

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.
NEGATIVE EFFECTS ABORTION HAS ON WOMEN’S MENTAL HEALTHDeNigris, Amanda R. (2023)Abstract Background: One of the most controversial topics in today's society revolves around abortion. The big question is whether it is constitutional or not. What people don’t seem to look at is what effects, if any, does it have on the women who have to go through it. If so is there anything being done to help? Objective: The study aims to research if abortion has any negative effects on a women's mental health. If it is proven to have negative effects, what research is being done, and what help is being offered to the women going through it? Design and Method: The research method is based on peer-reviewed literature consisting of scholarly articles, journals, and first-hand accounts. The research performed is qualitative and includes literature from 2000 to 2021. Research groups involving people who’ve experienced abortion were studied and the conclusions for those studied are recorded in the results section. The main research questions are: Does abortion have negative effects on mental health? What are the mental health effects abortion has on women? What help is being offered, if any, for people who have gone through abortions? Results: This study concluded that abortion does indeed have negative effects on women's mental health and more help and research are needed for this topic Conclusion: Abortion does prove to be a very controversial topic, and while everyone does deserve to have their own opinion on it, it is unfair to let these problems go unnoticed and untreated: these women require help. By helping them we can tackle a part of the mental health epidemic and get rid of some stigma around it.
Abortion in Performance: Why Not?Eisenhut, Frankie (2022)Abortion is not a topic that is heavily discussed within theatre. Many plays tend to shy away from the topic, avoiding the political conversation. In 2022, the Supreme Court is overturning Roe v. Wade, the law declaring abortion as legal. Now is the time to talk about abortion in performance.
