Quick Hit: So what is an Abortion Doula?

Still wondering what exactly an abortion doula is or does? The Abortion Gang has a great post up today featuring an interview with The Doula Project in an effort to help answer that very question. A couple of great quotes:

Any medical procedure can be scary, but facing an abortion can be especially frightening for some because of the wealth of inaccurate information and the stigma surrounding the procedure.

and:

As reproductive justice activists remind us, the choices most of us are able to make about our reproductive health are greatly affected by our circumstances, which are constrained by socioeconomic status, race, gender, sexuality, nationality, legal status, etc.

Best of all, the piece includes a list of abortion doula groups that are popping up across the U.S. – including yours truly! You can read the whole piece here.
