In states across the country, long before the Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade, pregnant women were already charged, convicted and imprisoned for pregnancy loss. Reproductive rights advocates say it’s because laws created to protect pregnant women from violence and abuse are used to prosecute people whose pregnancies end prematurely.
We talk to Dana Sussman of National Advocates for Pregnant Women about what pregnancy loss lawsuits might look like in the country’s new post-Roe era. The organization documents and provides legal defenses in cases involving pregnant women accused of pregnancy-related crimes.
In participating regions, you’ll also hear a local news segment to help you understand what’s going on in your community.
