This panel will challenge current abortion advocacy, policy, and care delivery on its failure to include later abortion, identifying a pervasive and unexamined stigma around later abortion that conflicts with our core values. The panelists will begin a conversation about how to address it and dismantle the barriers between patients and their care.
Physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, researchers, social workers, health educators and other healthcare professionals.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to: 

  1. Summarize who seeks later abortion care and why.
  2. Describe viability as a basis for abortion restrictions and how to manage discomfort with post-viability care.
  3. Analyze the harm, inherent discrimination and prevalence of gestational restrictions along with their being unchallenged by prevailing policy positions.
  4. Analyze the current efforts to “codify Roe” in state-houses in order to assess whether this framework truly serves all abortion seekers.
  5. Demonstrate using language that affirms abortion seekers as moral decision-makers throughout pregnancy.
