In US news and current events today, Black activists campaigning for reproductive justice are speaking out on why Black Lives Matter and reproductive rights are forever intertwined. Abortion rights is one of the most contentious issues in America today, as the anti choice, supposedly pro life side continues to wage war against those who are pro choice and in favor of letting women and people who reproduce to keep their bodily autonomy. The inequalities in our healthcare system also trickle down to abortion, as womens rights and womens health care are not meted out equally. To battle for civil rights and proclaim that Black Lives Matter, these activists from SisterSong and other organization argue, you must embrace reproductive justice and fight for Planned Parenthood and other organizations that are giving Black women and women of color the rights to do what they choose with their bodies.
