53 Geographer Rachel Pain has researched and written extensively about geographies and fear of violence and has noted experiencing sexual violence drastically alters a person’s spatial perception and mobility. Violence, no matter at what point in a person’s life it occurs, changes one’s life. 54 It has also been observed, “women’s emotional and practical reactions to the possibility of violence are wide ranging. 56 Because domestic violence takes place within the privacy of one’s home, it remains an invisible problem.

Abortion and domestic violence occur in the most private of space, the space of a woman’s body. However, both intersect with the public when debated, legislated and accessed.
