Personal and Economic Outcomes


September 5, 2022 – October 31, 2022
Location: Hubbard Case

The items in this single case exhibit link past and present experiences of abortion, from real-life abortion stories in Voices from the Waiting Room, to activist pins from the abortion-access organizations Ipas and the Republican Majority for Choice.  Recent data is used to visualize the financial and socio-economic burdens experienced by both those who get a wanted abortion and those who are denied one.


This exhibition was sponsored in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
