Contributing sentiments towards policy:

55% : Abortion is normal and safe.
47% : Abortion doulas -- individuals who are trained to offer support for patients seeking abortion -- "stand between the person [they're] assisting and the world,"says Ka'Lyn Coghill, an abortion doula based in Virginia.
45% : A later 1992 SCOTUS ruling allowed states to implement their own laws related to abortion -- and since 2010, Republican-led state legislatures have proposed hundreds of laws designed to constrict abortion access and stigmatize those who seek abortion care.
45% : Abortion is still legal in the U.S., though for many people seeking the procedure is arduous, emotionally taxing, and expensive.
45% : Honestly, doula work is liberation work -- you have to be someone who is willing to stand between the person that you're assisting and the world because the world will have assumptions about that person who's getting the abortion, and they'll have assumptions about abortion laws and what abortion means and what it isn't.
40% : All of these factors play a role when you get an abortion, but a lot of people don't really think about that because these are things that are not widely discussed when we talk about abortion, especially if you're not in reproductive justice circles.
39% : But abortion, or the intentional termination of one's pregnancy, is also highly politicized in the U.S.
