Rutgers Public Health Expert, Former Principal Research Scientist at the Guttmacher Institute, Available to Comment on what the Midterm Results Mean for Abortion Rights

Laura Lindberg, Professor in the Department of Urban-Global Health at the Rutgers School of Public Health and the former Principal Research Scientist at the Guttmacher Institute, is available to speak on the implications of the abortion rights victories in the midterm elections.

The following quote from Lindberg is available for pick-up:

“Last night, abortion rights won in referendums across the country. The American people made it clear that they support reproductive autonomy and don’t want the government interfering in their personal decision-making about if and when to have children. Pundits who said ‘it’s the economy, stupid’ too often ignored what voters know:  abortion is an economic issue. The costs of being a parent are especially salient in the current economy as people feel the impact of inflation in their everyday lives.”
