Translating Abortion Disinformation: The Spanish-Language Anti-Choice Landscape

May 18, 2022

NARAL Pro-Choice America's research team is committed to exposing the anti-choice movement's use of disinformation to attack abortion access and reproductive freedom. In 2021, we began a long-term research project aiming to expand our understanding of how anti-choice disinformation disseminates online in Spanish-language spaces and how it could impact Spanish-speaking communities in the United States.Our research sought to identify influential Spanish-language activists and Facebook pages that oppose abortion and spread disinformation and determine what overlap exists between English-language and Spanish-language anti-choice groups, influencers, and messages. We also wanted to understand more about social media engagement with Spanishlanguage news coverage of abortion and expose what messages anti-choice groups and activists advertised to Spanish speakers in the United States, particularly in a political context.As we approach the 2022 midterm elections and a U.S. Supreme Court decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization with the potential to overturn Roe v. Wade and radically shift the landscape of abortion access across the United States, it is more important than ever to combat anti-choice messages and disinformation targeting Spanishspeaking communities.

The State of Legal Abortion: States Poised to Ban Abortion If Roe Falls

January 17, 2022

This brief outlines the potential effects of the US Supreme Court's ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a case that directly challenges Roe v. Wade. Specifically, if Roe v. Wade is overturned, 28 states would likely take action to prohibit abortion outright. Of those, 12 states already have "trigger bans" in place, which would ban abortion automatically.

Medication Abortion Care

January 17, 2022

For over 20 years, medication abortion care has been a safe and effective U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved option for ending an early pregnancy. The medication abortion regimen involves two medications: mifepristone and, after, misoprostol. Although proven to be safe and effective, outdated and unnecessary restrictions at the federal level and politically motivated restrictions at the state level have blocked access to care.In December 2021, the FDA lifted the medically unnecessary in-person dispensing requirement for mifepristone–meaning federal restrictions will no longer force people to travel to a hospital, clinic, or medical office to access medication abortion care. However, other outdated restrictions on medication abortion care remain in place at the federal level. Additionally, the onslaught of state-level attacks on abortion care included many targeted efforts to undermine access to medication abortion care.

Who Decides? The Status of Women's Reproductive Rights in the United States

February 22, 2018

In an environment in which anti-choice legislators and organizations feel emboldened to eliminate abortion and contraception seemingly by any means necessary, pro-active, pro-choice policy is often our strongest line of defense. Not only do these policies help protect every woman's right to make reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing safe, legal abortion, they allow state governments to showcase their interest in supporting the women and families in their state by blocking federal anti-choice overreach. Pro-choice measures enacted during 2017 cover wide-ranging topics, from measures to improve contraceptive access, including requirements that health-insurance plans cover 12 months of contraception at once, to policies that promote healthy childbearing, to measures that protect pregnant women in the workplace. Policymakers know what the public majority already knows: that protecting a woman's right to comprehensive reproductive healthcare is the right thing to do and makes for a healthier state with a stronger economy.
