Surrogacy agencies within and without the United States are using legal loopholes to profit from poor women and women of color’s bodies.
This is a health and human rights crisis that has been ignored for far too long. We’re standing with SisterSong and National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health in Geneva right now calling for US action before the UN’s anti-racism body.
Activists had been warning for months that the Hobby Lobby ruling could have damaging consequences for LGBT Americans.
I’m trying to post as many articles on the various groups of people affected by the supreme court’s ruling. If anyone has any ideas of other groups of people further marginalized by these laws please let me know and send me articles! I’m expecting there should be something on the ableism involved, as well as classism.
On March 25, lawyers of for-profit corporations will argue at the Supreme Court that employers should be able to deny workers access to birth control. I just put my name on a giant banner that will be displayed at the Court to show the Justices where I stand. Add yours!
TW: Rape and incest, forced pregnancy
This Tuesday, the Colorado House Judiciary Committee will hear a bill that will ban all abortion and emergency contraception in Colorado, and make it a felony for a physician to perform an abortion.
Representative Humphrey’s bill (House Bill 1133) will deny survivors of rape or incest access to emergency contraception, and force them to give birth to their attacker’s child should they become pregnant as a result of these violent acts.
Forcing people to bear children that result from rape and incest goes too far, but Representative Humphrey doesn’t think it goes far enough. He wants to make sure any physician in Colorado who performs an abortion can be sentenced to 12 years in prison and a $750,000 fine.
We’ve seen attacks on reproductive health become law in states across the country over the past year, but don’t want them here in Colorado. This bill is an attempt to insert politicians into Coloradans personal, private health care decisions.
TELL THE STATE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE TO VOTE NO ON HOUSE BILL 1133
Many in the black community have fought for reproductive justice — but we’re often left out of the story
Next Saturday there’s a Reproductive Rights Rally taking place at my State’s Capital (Little Rock, Arkansas). I’m trying to see if my church will help send me there to do our “Standing on the Side of Love” thing (Social Justice is a big part of UUism). I’ll try to do a post on it and maybe I’ll see some of you there (I’ll be wearing my Sex Education Army t-shirt). Also, we’re going to be signing petitions to get more comprehensive sex education in Arkansas schools.
If any of you would like to chip in for gas and what not to get me there, click on my donate button!
