Framing Abortion Politics in the UK: Tensions, Contestations, and Resistance

Project Details


This project employs a feminist analysis of abortion politics, comparing abortion policy and legislative debates in
the UK, placing these debates within their respective institutional contexts and wider territorial politics. It responds
to academic and political urgency to comprehend the rise in anti-abortion activism in the UK, uncovering the
connections between pro-life resistance to abortion and contestations within reproductive rights movements and
their shared implications for policy change and women's rights. As an interdisciplinary social science project, it
offers a distinct perspective from the prevailing legal scholarship on abortion, while contributing to the growing
literature on resistance to gendered change.
