The “Word-Made�? flesh: The disembodiment of gender in the abortion debate

Faye Ginsburg

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    These words were the thoughts of a right-to-life activist as she prayed in front of the first and only abortion clinic in the state of North Dakota, the Fargo Women’s Health Organization.1 Through such rhetoric, she and others like her have been attempting to resignify not only the physical site of abortion-the clinic-but also the pregnant bodies that enter its doors. For many other women in the region, the clinic’s opening in 1981 signalled a long-awaited blessing: it greatly increased their access to safe, sympathetic, and reasonably priced abortions.
