Meet the “Doula Dude”

by Carder As a male embodied birth worker and intactivist, reproductive rights are at the forefront of my advocacy and beliefs… As a full-spectrum doula, Iíll advocate for whatever birth outcome the reproductive person chooses. A cesarean section, elective termination, homebirth, or an hospital birth with an epidural. Whether they choose parenting or adoption. Iíll […]

Pro-abortion doula says she “loves and respects” all birth choices

Former Tiller intern: Abortion can be a radical act of love

I see being a doula as a political act and I believe that abortion, pregnancy, and childbirth can be a radical act of love and resistance. Iíve held the hands of thousands of people during their abortions and the compassion and love that Iíve witnessed while supporting someone during their abortion has shaped the kind […]

Should pregnant women be shackled in prison?

Iím really glad to see the momentum building in our favor when it comes to the treatment of pregnant women in prison – but letís remember for a second where these practices come from: they are based on the way men are treated in prison. Women used to be a rarity in prisons and jails, […]

How to become an abortion doula
