Healthcare reporters are 3x more likely to include a physician’s perspective and 2x more likely to include medical research than a political reporter. Medical professionals and pregnant people are the experts on abortion—not politicians. Their voices matter. pic.twitter.com/tRoauBjrUU— NARAL (@NARAL) July 14, 2020
Coverage of abortion matters because polarizing language creates an issue where there is none. 77% of Americans support legal access to abortion. Most Americans support reproductive freedom, and coverage of abortion should reflect that fact. We can do better. #ReportReproRight— NARAL (@NARAL) July 6, 2020
