Pregnancy Justice: The Case of Shirley Wheeler

Anti-abortion measures infringe on the constitutional rights and the personhood of all women. Anti-abortion ideology is used to justify forced medical interventions on pregnant women and arrests and detentions of pregnant women who have experienced pregnancy losses, disagreed with doctor’s advice, or had or attempted to have an abortion.

This Pregnancy Justice video provides documentation of pre and post Roe v. Wade cases in which pregnant women who had abortions were targeted for criminal investigations, interrogations, arrests, convictions, and incarceration. Please watch and share.
