Pro-abortion best practices

  • Let’s Talk About Abortion from Avow Texas shares some general best practices about talking about abortion! 
  • Things to Think About When Talking About Abortion
  • A quick note: Coat hangers, while a potent symbol of the pre-ROE era, aren’t the appropriate imagery for this moment. With the availability and safety of abortion pills, we’re not “going back;” we’re going forward into a new era with new challenges and modes of resistance. 
  • Avoid gendered language: People of all genders have abortions! 
  • Avoid referencing an abortion “Underground Railroad,” as this not only co-opts the language of a Black women-led movement but also undermines the work of abortion funds and practical support networks across the country!
  • Self-managed abortion is often a safe and reasonable option 
  • Things to Think About When Posting on Social Media
  • Consider and care for your friends and family who may have had an abortion when you post. Avoid describing abortion as trauma or a hard decision
  • Encourage your community to avoid donating to national orgs instead of local clinics, funds, and organizers
