Abortion in Context
Feminism & Psychology Special Issue
We are pleased to introduce Part 2 of Feminism & Psychology’s Special Issue on Abortion in Context. In this part, we turn attention to experiences and meanings surrounding an abortion, rather than macro-level issues. The articles focus on individuals’ accounts of processes involved in an abortion – reaching a decision to terminate a pregnancy, undergoing the procedure, and coming to terms with any social disapproval that may follow. The overarching theme of both Part 1 and Part 2 of the Special Issue is that abortion (and women’s reproductive lives more generally) must be seen in context – whether medical, socio-cultural or legal context; or immediate material and interpersonal context.
