POV: Who Is Forgotten in Our Discussion of Abortion?

(September 11, 2021, BU Today)

In this “Point of View piece,” BU faculty including Nutrition Program Director and Clinical Associate Professor Shelly DeBiasse discuss the importance of gender neutral language when discussing reproductive health care and how the media is failing to address that nonbinary people and trans men need abortion care, too.

“The erasure of trans men and nonbinary people from those who may need abortion services perpetuates inequalities in reproductive health care that trans and nonbinary people already face, and causes harm to some of those same vulnerable people.”
