We must be able to decide for ourselves when and if to start a family.
As we wrestle with a future where Roe V. Wade is no longer the law of the land and reproductive rights are potentially at the whim of the states, it has never been more important to take action and vote. The reproductive justice movement is our chance to stop others from making decisions about our health, our bodies, and our families. It is crucial that women and pregnant people have access to affordable and compassionate health care and are trusted to make their own decisions about when and if to start a family– and have the opportunity to raise a healthy family in a safe, healthy, and violence-free environment.
This issue particularly impacts Latines. Four in five Latinas report that access to affordable birth control has been important in their own lives, and more than half can imagine a situation in which abortion could be the right choice for them1.
Today’s Supreme court makeup is not friendly to the reproductive freedom movement. With 3 Trump appointed judges and three others appointed by republicans, our recourse for this will be through voting for elected officials who can take action on reproductive rights.

- 47 years ago, the Supreme Court legalized the right to choose, which was a huge victory for reproductive rights. Roe v Wade ended most back alley abortions and made it safe to have ownership over your own body and future.
- 47 years later, and reproductive rights are still under attack. 39 senators, most of whom are cis white men, recently urged the Supreme Court to “reconsider Roe v. Wade”.
- We must stand together to protect the reproductive rights of women, trans men, and non binary folks -- anyone that can get pregnant.
- Here are the 39 senators who signed their name to the Supreme Court to overturn abortion rights, so let’s vote them out. We’re an electorate that’s 32 million strong and we have the power to do so.
- If you are not directly affected by #RoeVsWade, right now is a great time to be an ally and make sure you are 1) a loud advocate for reproductive rights 2) vote for pro-choice reps 3) get all your friends to vote for pro-choice reps. Kay thanks.
