In brief: In our final abortion landscape deep-dive, digging into where we are and how we got here as, the brilliant Jill E. Adams of If/When/How (and SIA Legal) and I go hard at all three parts of the problematic “Safe, Legal, and Rare”. I posit that we aim for Effective, Supported, and Private — but that’s just my first, in-the-moment ‘update’, likely in need of further consideration. (And I definitely don’t speak for Jill.)
She explains the breakdown in the “rational actor” theory and the disingenuous (at best) way that “objectivity” is imbued into legal educations that graduates take with them into practice — or, most dangerously and very commonly, into public office. Her take is extremely illuminating, even for long-time followers of reproductive rights and justice. I’m so excited to bring it to you!
