Terrisa Bukovinac recognizes what it is to feel like a black sheep. As a secular person with Progressive politics, it took her a long time to feel satisfied backing the pro-life movement. While activists on both sides might deem these two identities as contending, Bukovinac established the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) last year to show other Progressives there is space — and even a soaring need— for them in the pro-life movement.

Bukovinac, like many pro-lifers, is “extremely optimistic” that the Supreme Court will overturn, or at least “significantly do damage” to Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion, as the Court hears Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a matte that will let the justices review the precedent set by the landmark Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey decisions.

“That is a huge victory for our movement; it’s not even close to end game, but it’s certainly the beginning of the tides turning,” she said, adding that should the Court take serious action on Roe, it will change the conversation on abortion forever.

“The fight then goes to these very blue communities, these very leftist, very feminist communities that are right now strongholds for the abortion industrial complex,” she said. “So the fight is going to get a lot harder in those areas.”

“That’s why it’s so critical that we are all raising up the next generation, that we are giving voice to the people that come after us that are going to be moving into roles of leadership in the movement in the next three to five years,” she said.

Bukovinac expects groups like PAAU can show the importance of stressing pro-life Progressives in those communities so that those who do not match into the typical mold of a pro-life supporter can still feel more confident to “stand up to this regime to recognize that it is actually a symptom of capitalism and racism and not something to defend.”

“Then I think that will begin to truly chip away in these abortion strongholds, where the pro-life message needs to sink in and be heard the loudest,” she added.

Bukovinac, who was raised a pro-choice Christian, said it wasn’t until she lost her faith in her 20s that she slowly started to become an advocate for the unborn.

She says having always had a “sensitivity to animal rights,” which many pro-lifers used to challenge her perception on abortion: “How can you care about the dolphins if you don’t care about unborn children being killed in the womb?” people would ask her.

She claims her opinion changed over time as she would argue with people online and criticize viewpoints that allowed for the destruction of animals, and people would say, “Oh, well I bet you support Planned Parenthood, don’t you?”
