Caroline Tatua @CarolineTatua๐Ÿ”Even abortion providers can carry unconscious stigma, and it's interesting to help them recognize that/change their vocabulary. High quality care means breaking down unintentional stigma for providers bc it impacts the experiences of those who have abortions.
Caroline Tatua @CarolineTatua๐Ÿ”Great point from - it's *fundamentalism* that makes people try to impose views on others, not religion.
Thulani @melvin_toolz๐Ÿ”Principles to start with when working with youth to shift culture around sex & abortion stigma:
1. Sex happens. Abortion happens. Let's normalize it.
2. Acknowledge that sex is pleasurable.

Caroline Tatua @CarolineTatua๐Ÿ”"I can't tell you how empowering it was to share my abortion story in a room full of people... How many of you have told your family what you do? It's hard to deal with internalized stigma." - Jade from the steering committee!
Caroline Tatua @CarolineTatua๐Ÿ”As we talked through scenarios of abortion stigma, we explored how one person's experience with abortion might affect many other parts of their life, such as confidentiality, employment, family, healthcare, and more...
Shreejana @Ceezana๐Ÿ”A moment when we were asked to place our hand on a person who said something meaningful during day one of our global member gathering, and already our network is so close to each other!
my2cnts @cblazina๐Ÿ”. staff along with member funds from , , and are in at the second member gathering! They're having convos on abortion stigma, self-managed abortion, and more! Follow to stay up to date.

Daffodil ๐ŸŒพ @IamButterScotch๐Ÿ”Participants are talking through the abortion vs adoption debate - Keep in mind adoption can mean putting life on hold for up to 9 months. What does that mean for a person's health? Life? Employment? Family?
Daffodil ๐ŸŒพ @IamButterScotch๐Ÿ”There needs to be space for people who hold regret or sadness & are still abortion advocates. We don't need to say all abortions create one emotion. A diversity of stories means people can feel whatever they feel. Let's bring complexity into mainstream narratives.
Daffodil ๐ŸŒพ @IamButterScotch๐Ÿ”We don't need to justify abortion for young people as a way of "reducing teen pregnancy." It's about wanted pregnancy at any age. Being able to choose your own life plan at any age is something important. - panelist
Daffodil ๐ŸŒพ @IamButterScotch๐Ÿ”The movement shies away from difficult conversation about disability. Stigmatizing issues in disability movement include asking questions about how a person got pregnant. We can't just focus on economic autonomy, also need reproductive health.
Daffodil ๐ŸŒพ @IamButterScotch๐Ÿ”One incredible experience: A participant who had a teacher who told the class "I'm sorry I couldn't be here yesterday, I had an abortion." That kind of honesty takes away stigma and has a ripple effect across the lives of everyone who hears!
Daffodil ๐ŸŒพ @IamButterScotch๐Ÿ”Even if you don't have an abortion, it affects your life. Abortion is part of a better life for everyone, and that includes people who can't get pregnant, or people who may never have an abortion.
KarenHarrisThurston @OliveMercies๐Ÿ”Our movement creates binaries around disabilities. ~ 40% storytellers have a disability. We can hold firm ground here, beyond fetal anomaly by centering people who have abortions & who have a disability & following their lead. -
KarenHarrisThurston @OliveMercies๐Ÿ”People who have abortions or support abortion rights don't fit one stereotype. There is no "us and them" and stereotypes can prevent people from sharing their stories if they don't think they fit the mold. - participant
KarenHarrisThurston @OliveMercies๐Ÿ”The legacy of thinking abortion is unsafe or dangerous contains a sense of punishment for having sex. We don't need to be thinking in that way. -
KarenHarrisThurston @OliveMercies๐Ÿ”Overheard at the 2nd inroads Global Member Gathering: "Mandatory counseling and waiting periods come straight from abortion stigma." So true.
Daffodil ๐ŸŒพ @IamButterScotch๐Ÿ”It's all too common that the first time you learn about abortion, stigma comes with it. But stigma gets in the way of people being able to have an abortion.
Arthur Sharp @arthursharp13๐Ÿ”Managing fertility is everyone's right and opportunity, which means that it's not just "contraception is good" and "abortion is bad," to be used only when contraception fails.
soft yolk @mandisza_๐Ÿ”Some on-point fashion at the gathering this week:
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ” Describe a time when you learned something about your body. Join the conversation with #wemakeinroads!
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”What was it like for you to learn about sex & sexuality? We're making connections along our life paths towards how we came to this work.
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”Stigma around abortion and sex can overlap. For one participant, learning about feminism and ending abortion stigma also changed their perspective to shift stigma around sexuality as well!

Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”We need to be more careful about our narratives comparing the global North and South. Stigma and restrictions are all over the world, not just the global South, where it's stigmatized and polarized. The global North has many of the same issues. - says panelist
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”Sometimes we end up talking about abortion in framework of because that's what makes people comfortable or gets their attention. But it means talking about abortion as needing to be legal so it is "safe." But that message can also hurt our advocacy.
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”In some parts of the globe, like Europe & the US, Western medicine makes going to the doctor the desired paradigm, but this can change. The work that happens "underground" can innovate & revolutionize the mainstream, making way for our rights. - participant

Osoba. ๐ŸŒŸ @Mmatejci๐Ÿ”Laws need to be flexible to incorporate new evidence. Example: Medical abortion has changed everything, but national laws change very slowly. That's a problem, especially when people who help people get medical abortions are criminalized. - panelist
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”A little role playing can make conversations about stigma easier to approach! Let's pretend we're in high school or in the doctor's office and feel out what teachers and doctors say that can increase or decrease stigma...
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”For young people, let's not sugarcoat language about bodies and sex. Using euphemisms causes stigma. Using the right words leads them to the right information - participant
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”When working with young people, having conversations, not imposing bias, and listening makes it easier to shift perspectives and learn new concepts about sex, bodies, and abortion.
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”Attitudes & beliefs among teachers compose unwritten, unofficial curriculums around & learning about different reproductive options. Uncovering hidden curriculums can help .
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”Talking about abortion isn't illegal, but some organizations still won't take a public stance about abortion, which isolates abortion activists & adds to abortion stigma. How to we reach broader movements & encourage open conversations?
Dr T @drtlaleng๐Ÿ”Kings and Jade gave a beautiful session on safety + self care in the work that we do ๐Ÿ’•
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”Self-managed abortion is polarized, treated as the opposite of surgical abortion. but it's not home vs. clinics - it's really a spectrum. Supporting self-managed abortions also doesn't mean the state has no accountability for providing healthcare.
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”"My work is positioned at the outskirts of the normal paradigm of abortion care. But I think [self-managed abortion] allows us to redefine things, like quality care - that might mean having an abortion in the bedroom while watching TV." - Kinga,
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”In the era of , I have also been wondering abt how the convo on abortion stigma links to changing how we talk about sex more broadly... Let's unpack this more together! - Shared by a participant in our global gathering in
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”Even under "liberal" law, misdirected policies can arise, especially from myths about abortion, such as those around sex-selective abortion bans. This myth prevails among political people & it remains a very sensitive topic.
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”When you think about your experiences about abortion, how do you feel from day-to-day? We'll spend some time this week exploring and reflecting on our experiences as a way to get away from binaries & claim space.
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”What do you think of when you hear the word "abortion"? In the room: choice, life, fear, love, stigma... What words come to your mind as you work to ?
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”"The answer to abortion stigma is solidarity." Acceptance and empathy are ok, but I don't have to understand everyone's decision or approve of it. No one should have to explain before we accept their decision to have an abortion. -
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”Contraception and abortion stigma relate, but we shouldn't say contraception = good and abortion = bad. No one should have to prove they were on contraception to avoid abortion stigma. "The end of stigmatization is real freedom!" -
Women Help Women @WomenHelpOrg๐Ÿ”"How it feels to wake up one morning and think, 'Oh my god, I might be pregnant.' & know if you can or can't continue a pregnancy, realizing you need a safe choice. Waking up & providing that safe space means ." - Jade from the steering committee

Osoba. ๐ŸŒŸ @Mmatejci๐Ÿ”A different kind of sentiment gatherer using paper in different colors to show emotions around abortion from individuals in different regions, from danger and fear to power, safety, and love.
