The Data Behind How Getting (or Not Getting) an Abortion Affects Women's Lives (Encore Presentation)
(Note: This discussion first aired back in June.) What happens when a woman seeking an abortion in the U.S. is turned away? Our guest is Diana Greene Foster, PhD, who set out to answer this question as definitively as possible. Her book is "The Turnaway Study: Ten Years, a Thousand Women, and the Consequences of Having -- or Being Denied -- an Abortion." It is an up-close exploration of abortion access across America today; it's also the first long-term study of American women's lives to document the consequences -- physical, financial, emotional, professional, personal, and psychological -- of receiving versus being denied an abortion.
