Self-Managed Abortion with a Reproductive Justice Lens

Self-managed abortion is a way to decolonize and demedicalize abortion care in our communities, taking back our community’s cultural practices and knowledge of our bodies. Come learn why BIWOC and nonbinary people are more likely to self-manage an abortion, how new efforts to criminalize abortion target our communities, and ways to safely share information about self-managed abortion in community. Join Abortion On Our Own Terms for a look at self-managed abortion
