One woman’s story of delays and denials of care reveals how anti-abortion individuals and policies lead to substandard care for pregnant people—and provides a window into our post-Roe future.
This reporting was supported by the International Women’s Media Foundation’s Reproductive Rights Reporting Fund. A written version of the story appears online and in print in The Nation: “What This Later-Abortion Story Tells Us About a Post-Roe Future.”
