Are We Here Yet Podcast

Jul 21, 2022

We've tackled the social and political implications of Dobbs v Jackson on our sister podcast, On The Rocks Politica.

We've written essays on what it means to communities and to women from a broad spectrum of experience and socio-economic backgrounds on this podcast and at 'Essays from An Artist.

So it was important here at M the Media Project that we tackle the economic implications on this week's 'Are We Here Yet?' podcast.

Our guest, Chanel Dubofsky is an author, educator and advocate who shared with us a multiplicity of information regarding the economic implications for women and for society as a whole due to restrictions placed on women to access reproductive healthcare.

Consider how you may hold and perpetuate abortion stigma, or negative attitude and wrong information about abortion by anti-choicers. Everyone has been impacted by abortion stigma, even if you work for abortion justice. Some examples of abortion stigma:

            "I would never have an abortion, but…"

            "No one wants to have an abortion."

            "Only cis women have abortions."

            "Abortion leads to infertility, cancer, depression (etc)."

You might not know that these 4 statements perpetuate abortion stigma, but they do
