Abortion Regret: The New Attack on Reproductive Freedom

Author(s): Ehrlich, J. Shoshanna; Doan, Alesha;
Contributors: Ehrlich, J. Shoshanna; Doan, Alesha;
Abstract:

An indispensable resource for students, scholars, and activists concerned about current attacks on abortion rights, this book offers an unmatched account of the emergence, consolidation, and consequences of the antiabortion movement's paternalistic abortion regret narrative.


• Examines the historical continuity of the abortion regret narrative as a political strategy used to limit women's access to abortion

• Asserts that the abortion regret narrative is intimately tied to a gendered and paternalistic construction of women's divine role as mothers

• Examines the antiabortion movement's strategy to place the "grieving" mother at the center of its oppositional narrative

• Uses interviews, textual analysis of primary sources, and content analysis of state antiabortion policies to trace the growing impact of the abortion regret narrative

• Examines and reveals the antiabortion movement's calculated political motivation for using the abortion regret narrative as its primary strategy to oppose abortion rights
