The field of abortion counseling originated in the abortion rights movement of the 1970s. During its evolution to the present day, it has faced significant challenges, primarily arising from the increasing politicization and stigmatization of abortion since legalization. Abortion counseling has been affected not only by the imposition of anti-abortion statutes, but also by the changing needs of patients who have come of age in a very different era than when this occupation was first developed. One major innovation-head and heart counseling-departs in significant ways from previous conventions of the field and illustrates the complex and changing political meanings of abortion and therefore the challenges to abortion providers in the years following Roe v. Wade. (Am J Public Health. Published online ahead of print November 15, 2012: e1-e9. doi:10.2105/AJPH.2012.301063).
