Stock Photos on Abortion
The topic of abortion is still being exploited in public discourse: Polarizing and stigmatising media coverage patronizes and even criminalizes women. The media represents a one-sided visual language that projects a wrong impression of abortion and the circumstances of women affected by unwanted pregnancy.
The initiative „Stock Photos on Abortion“ aims to change this: Starting now, it will begin to provide a free photo collection for media and/or public use. The photos will illustrate the critical situation of a woman (or couple) with an unwanted pregnancy in a realistic way. MUVS wants this initiative to contribute in a useful and important way to the further destigmatisation and decriminalisation of women with unwanted pregnancy and of abortion.
