Repro Roundup Digest, Week of October 19

After a two-day hiatus on the 18th and 19th, the Repro Roundup continues! This was a busy week for abortion news, despite the fact that I refuse to give more airtime to the Barrett confirmation process or this administration’s antics. One of the intentions of these Roundups is to cover news that doesn’t get wide attention. So while there may be repro news dominating the news cycle, there is repro news getting pushed to the side. That’s the news I want to cover. Here’s what I covered this week:

New Repro Roundup: Repro Roundup: October 3rd is Rosie Jiménez Day, honoring the first victim of the Hyde Amendment

My latest Repro Round up honors Rosie Jiménez. Who was the first woman to die from the Hyde Amendment. Read about her life, the Hyde Amendment, and the EACH Woman Act below.

NEW! Repro Roundup: Louisiana’s anti-abortion amendment on the ballot Nov. 1 (vote no!)

I’m excited to launch the Repro Roundup, a column on my Medium blog. I summarize abortion news happening around the country, why it matters, and what you can do about it — in 250 words or less.

Pre-launching: two email series about the repro movement!

I am making it official! I’m pre-launching two limited-run email series about the repro movement. The first is educational: what the hell is the repro movement? What is clinic escorting? What is reproductive justice? What do abortion funds do?

Sneak Peek

I am so excited to finally be launching this monthly newsletter. It’s been a long time coming. As a freelance writer, chronic volunteer, and proud fighter on the frontlines of the pro-choice movement, I’ve been searching for a way to dig a little deeper and make connections between my work, my writing, and living in DC. I’m hoping that this newsletter can do just that!
