New Handbook for a Post-Roe America
The Complete Guide to Abortion Legality, Access, and Practical Support
by Robin Marty
A completely new edition–with a new introduction by Amanda Palmer–of Robin Marty’s best-selling manual on what to do if/when Roe v. Wade is overturned.
The New Handbook for a Post-Roe America is a comprehensive and user-friendly manual for understanding and preparing for the looming changes to reproductive rights law, and getting the health care you need. Activist and writer Robin Marty guides readers through various worst-case scenarios of a post-Roe America, and offers ways to fight back, including: how to acquire financial support, how to use existing networks and create new ones, and how to, when required, work outside existing legal systems. She details how to plan for your own emergencies, how to start organizing now, what to know about self-managed abortion care with pills and/or herbs, and how to avoid surveillance. The only guidebook of its kind, The New Handbook for a Post-Roe America includes new chapters that cover the needs and tools available for pregnant people across the country.
This second edition features extensively updated information on abortion legality and access in the United States, and approximately one hundred pages of new content, covering such topics as independent alternatives to Planned Parenthood, “auntie networks,” taxpayer-funded abortions, and using social media wisely in the age of surveillance.
