Latinas are the targets of abortion misinformation. Providers and advocates are pushing back.

Latinas in clinics and groups providing abortion access say they're working to dispel growing abortion misinformation aimed at Hispanics in English and Spanish.

Latinas who work in clinics and with organizations that are making abortions accessible after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade say they're increasingly having to counter abortion-related misinformation that can harm women and the larger communities the groups serve.

Misinformation spreaders have found ways to latch on to the national abortion conversation in English and in Spanish “to continue disseminating this misinformation at a more rapid pace,” said Susy Chávez of California Latinas for Reproductive Justice.

From false information about abortion criminalization in the U.S. to deceitful information about the lasting physical harm of abortions, the spread of misinformation has become even more rampant in the month since Roe was repealed, Chávez and others say.

Alyx Carrasquel, an intake coordinator for the Florida Access Network abortion fund, regularly speaks with pregnant people who have called for information or appointments.

Carrasquel said most of the people who contact her for help have been on the receiving end of misinformation about abortions being unsafe.
