A talk by Dr Grace Tillyard on Reproductive Politics, Data, and Technology
This talk explores the threats posed by data-driven infrastructures to abortion seekers in the United States, where the procedure is now partially or completely banned in at least 14 states following Roe’s reversal.
Drawing on extensive fieldwork conducted in the state of Florida, the talk reveals how antiabortion groups harness data-intensive and advertising technologies to push their political agendas and block access to vital services.
The talk then discusses the intertwined histories of data and reproductive privacy in the United States, offering a critical appraisal of proposals by civil society groups and politicians to address these imminent harms.
