Abortion

One of the most controversial areas of reproductive rights is abortion and access to abortion services. During the civil rights movements of the 1960s, abortion was often at the forefront of the mainstream feminist health movement. Pro-life and abortion rights advocates came from varied and sometimes unexpected social and religious perspectives. Many women felt that the complex realities of their reproductive lives were overshadowed by the mainstream feminist movement’s emphasis on abortion to the exclusion of other reproductive options.
