NYTimes Article on PPNYC Study

A few months back, Planned Parenthood of New York City released a study (pdf) based on several focus groups we'd conducted with Dominican women living in New York City and Santo Domingo (DR). Among some of the key findings were that thanks to alienation from the U.S. healthcare system, women in both NYC and Santo Domingo were regularly self-inducing abortion.

Jennifer 8. Lee of the New York Times has written a beautiful piece on the study and the larger problem, which appeared in Sunday's paper. I highly recommend reading it.
