This two-part project seeks to understand, discuss, and address issues surrounding some of the most contentious debates in the United States: unplanned pregnancy and abortion. The first part of the project looks at the pro-life feminist movement’s agenda and ideals through comprehensive interviews with nine self-proclaimed pro-life feminists. The goal of this research is to gain an understanding of a women-centric opposition to abortion and to reflect on possible solutions that would benefit women and gain support from both pro-life and pro-choice advocates. Taking into account the information gathered through qualitative research on pro-life feminism, the second part of this project takes on the issue of teenage pregnancy in Onondaga County. In a partnership with Planned Parenthood of Syracuse, a proposed community-based, comprehensive pregnancy and STD prevention program is in the process of securing major funding from the New York State Department of Health and plans to begin programming in the Summer of 2016.
