Abstract: We considered the role that negative stereotypes and images of abortion providers may have played in the development, introduction and passage of recent TRAP (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers) legislation. To date, pro-choice arguments against these bills focused on the potential threat to abortion access for women and the safety of abortion procedures. An important underutilized strategy in fighting TRAP laws is to directly challenge the negative image of abortion providers, and de-stigmatize abortion provision.

Abstract: Based on framing theory and the Extended Parallel Process Model, the purpose of this study is two-fold. First, it is to identify the dominant emotional appeal adopted in Chinese abortion ads. The second purpose is to outline how fear is presented in Chinese abortion ads by identifying the four key variables of the EPPM - the severity of a threat, the susceptibility to a threat, self-efficacy, and response efficacy. A quantitative content analysis was adopted to characterize and analyze 159 Chinese television abortion ads captured from The findings reveal that: first, Chinese television abortion ads often attempt to persuade audiences with fear appeals rather than “rational consideration of medical cost and benefits.” Second, all four components of the EPPM have been presented frequently in Chinese television abortion ads. Third, the benefits of abortion service are oversold in ways that conflict with promoting public health in Chinese television abortion ads.

Abstract: In India, access to abortion emerged out of the State’s concerns for the high rates of maternal deaths from unsafe abortions and for the high rates of population growth, and not from feminist imaginations of women’s rights over their bodies and the outcome of their pregnancies. Since the 1980s, socialist feminist movements have worked to break free from the State’s imagination of women as passive bearers of future citizens and to re-imagine women as empowered agents with the right to decide what happens to their bodies and with the right to demand the latest technologies for safe abortion from the the State. However, as factions of the feminist movement begin to work alongside transnational prochoice groups, abortion becomes an individual ‘choice’, pregnancy an individual’s ‘responsibility’ and empowerment a capacity for ‘self-care.’ This paper examines how these notions structure ways in which educated, middle-class Indian women, who identify as pro-choice feminists, remember and narrativize their experience of abortion and their understandings of their body, gender and sexuality since the abortion. Using interviews conducted between 2014 and 2016, this paper examines how the discourse of individual choice aims to liberate the body from the patriarchal control of the State, and yet imposes new forms of control on women’s bodies because of the very specific way in which it imagines abortion and female empowerment.
