Pro-Choice Author: Abortion carries “social shame” and “psychological burden”

By Sarah Terzo

From pro-choice author Melissa Harris-Perry:

… Abortion still carries tremendous social shame in addition to its personal psychological burden.

Activists for reproductive rights have a hard time convincing women and families who have terminated to be part of a movement that protects the right to terminate. Many understandably prefer not to be publicly associated with the stigma and potential violence that comes with standing up for choice.

Melissa Harris-Perry,  “Countering Antichoice Terrorism.” The Nation June 2, 2009.

I don’t think there are many pro-lifers who think being pro-choice brings with it a stigma.
