Perhaps the best way to improve your cinematography is to start with photography. NBC News/NBC Left Field Visual Journalist Ed Ou knows first hand, as he started his career taking photos for AP and Reuters (as a teen!!)

Abortion Back-Up Plan: Some Women Are Ordering Abortion Pills Online

Necolie loved being a mother but knew that she wanted, and maybe needed, to end her pregnancy. “It was really difficult to get to that point, especially as someone who has been a Republican voter. … I was Catholic. I just didn’t believe in that for anyone, much less myself.”

Necolie found a clinic in Tallahassee that would accept her health insurance, but she needed to pay $600 up front for the abortion and then submit the receipt to her insurance company for reimbursement. “There was no money to go there and do that,” she said. Necolie sat down at her computer and started researching ways to give herself an abortion at home.

Abortion Back-Up Plan: Some Women Are Ordering Abortion Pills Online | NBC Left Field

What happens if Roe v. Wade is overturned? As states including Alabama, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia pass bills restricting abortion access, and as abortion remains an unaffordable option for many women, experts expect that more American women may turn to other alternatives. Some talk about a return to back-alley procedures and coat hangers, and women taking matters into their own hands. But this overlooks something important: SOME women are already giving themselves abortions at home, away from doctors and clinics.
