REPRODUCTIVE & GENDER JUSTICE
We cannot achieve racial, economic, and gender justice for all without every person having the rights, resources, and recognition to control their bodies, lives, and futures.
Being able to make decisions about our own bodies is central to our freedom. Access to the full range of reproductive, sexual, and gender affirming health care is a basic human right. No judge, politician, or ban should ever block someone from making personal medical decisions or determining the course of their life.
The Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade and nearly 50 years of precedent has eliminated the federal constitutional right to abortion and set a dangerous precedent for who has the authority to make decisions for us about our bodies. At the same time, states across the nation are taking steps to ban and restrict access to gender-affirming care, denying transgender and gender expansive people life-saving medical care.
