So I saw a Planned Parenthood ad about reproductive coercion pop up on my dash, and a lot of the comments underneath it were expressing incredulity or disbelief that something like that really happens or really happens often.
But reproductive coercion is actually really common in abusive relationships. It’s a pattern of deliberate, coercive behavior from an abusive partner designed to control and interfere with a partner’s reproductive and sexual freedom and health. It’s another strategy used by some abusers to maintain their power and control over their partner. Reproductive coercion usually consists of pregnancy coercion (trying to pressure/force their partner to get pregnant) and/or secretly messing with their partner’s birth control (or outright not allowing them to use birth control).
examples of reproductive coercion can include (but definitely aren’t limited to):
Preventing you from getting an abortion, or pressuring or forcing you to get an abortion
Resources for info and support:
Some published research I’ve read about it:
Sexual coercion and reproductive health - Lori Heise et al
Pregnancy coercion, intimate parter violence, and unintended pregnancy - Elizabeth Miller et al
Reproductive and sexual coercion - The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
This is a really gross violation of a person’s bodily autonomy and right to well being. But unfortunately it can be really insidious and sometimes people don’t realize that what’s happening to them is a form of abuse. That’s why awareness and access to resources is so important.
Y’all even realize how many Black people are getting abused everyday and don’t even know that it’s some type of abuse because it happens so often and it’s so widespread. And when someone in the Black community points out it’s abuse they get hushed the fuck up about.
get outta here, people can be abused and be strong people. Being abused doesn’t happen because a person is weak and deserves it.
That’s some abuser mentality.
