Public Newsroom #38: Covering Abortion and Reproductive Rights

6:00 pm — 8:00 pm

How do we think, feel, and talk about abortion? Abortion in particular and reproductive health care in general are under attack by the Trump administration—including a national 20-week abortion ban and moves to reduce or eliminate health insurance coverage for contraception. The topic is highly stigmatized and politicized, leading to a dearth of information and stories at this intersection of public health, human rights, and political reporting. For Public Newsroom #38 Jenn Stanley will be walking us through the basics of reporting on reproductive rights with a focus on abortion. Stanley is the senior staff reporter at Rewire, a nonprofit publication dedicated to covering issues of sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice. She is also the host and producer of Rewire’s CHOICE/LESS podcast, which tells personal stories of reproductive injustice.
