Abortion in FL: Ask the Experts

Abortion in FL: Ask the Experts

Play Video

A panel of medical experts and advocates provided information on the abortion landscape in Florida during a special webinar on August 30, 2022 co-hosted by JaxNOW. Panelists debunked misinformation and inaccurate data used to rationalize recent state restrictions on the medical procedure. Panelists stressed that abortion is still legal in Florida and continued access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare will depend on the outcome of state elections in November.  Watch the video of the forum by clicking on the box.

Book Suggestions

Policing the Womb
The book lets you know that reproductive rights aren't just about abortion.

No Choice: The Destruction of Roe v. Wade and the Fight to Protect a Fundamental American Right

by Becca Andrews

Excerpts from a review:

“A powerful, necessary, absolutely captivating account of abortion in America, situating the fight for this fundamental human right inside a much broader landscape of reproductive injustice. Anchored in richly rendered individual stories—told with grace, nuance, and compassion. This is a book full of the history of resistance and resilience."

Lady Justice: Women, the Law, and the Battle to Save America

by Dahlia Lithwick

Excerpts from a review:
And while I suspect that having this book come out just as American women have had a fundamental civil right stripped from them by a cabal of anti-feminist reactionary judges is not the timing Lithwick would have chosen, by the time I got to the end of the book, I was sufficiently convinced that it isn’t just an important historical document but a necessary guide right now to at least some of the paths forward post-Dobbs. Lithwick’s book insists that there’s simply no time for the sense of helplessness currently felt by so many pro-choicers. ... While each of the women Lithwick profiles has done extraordinary things, not one of them is venerated as a superhero She-Hulk; each is written as a human being, her work put into context and made something like attainable. The throughline of all their labor is less the law itself and more a talent for organizing others to stand as a collective force, with the power, Lithwick writes, of “first principles and lofty ideas” behind them. Each of these women, Lithwick writes, needed other women behind her to accomplish what she did. And each of them, Lithwick hints, could be you, too — if you follow your gut, have a sharp moral conscience and put in the work.
