Beyond Choice: Organizing for Reproductive Justice


At the end of March, Congress passed a bill allowing states to deny funding to family planning groups that offer abortion services – groups like Planned Parenthood. Now, Pennsylvania and Michigan have introduced legislation to join over a dozen states in doing just that.

As we fight off right wing attacks on abortion rights, Loretta Ross asks us to consider what it would take to have real choices about our bodies.

On this week’s Making Contact, Loretta Ross, co-founder of SisterSong breaks down the reproductive justice framework; and Tina Reynolds, co-founder and Chair of Women on the Rise Telling HerStory, shares how a group of formerly incarcerated women came together to fight for the right to give birth to and raise children in healthy and safe environments.

Special thanks to Carly Forbes for Migrant Matters, a Rabble.ca podcast for original production and recording.
