A feminist study by the Socorristas; Presentation of the English version

Wednesday 6 November | 9 AM EDT |1 PM UTC

Through this research project, the authors (Ruth Zurbriggen, Nayla Vacarezza, Graciela Alonso, Belen Grosso, María Trpin) expand knowledge on what for some is a controversial issue: Medical abortion during the second trimester of pregnancy. Based on their extensive  practice of providing information and accompanying later abortion, the Socorristas have developed this text, which systematically captures their experience and knowledge on the topic. 

The book presents the experiences and reflections of 23 women who had second-trimester medical abortions and 16 feminist activists who support and accompany this practice.

The study was conducted by Colectiva La Revuelta, which is part of Socorristas en Red, the national Socorrista network in Argentina. The English translation was supported by Women Help Women and inroads. Watch Nayla Vacarezza and Susan Yanow as they present the English version of this research book to inroads members and discussSelf Managed Abortion!
