Crip Bits: Disability Justice is Reproductive Justice

We should have choice about our own bodies. This is not up for debate.

Restrictive abortion laws are on the rise. We need to highlight the impact of limiting access to abortion on disabled people of color, disabled poor people, and disabled pregnant people, along with the violence that transgender and non-binary people face while accessing reproductive health services.

What is the history of the reproductive justice movement in the United States? How have abortion laws changed throughout United States history? What are the ways that these laws are affecting our disabled, BIPOC, queer, transgender, non-binary, and pregnant communities? Where does the history of eugenics intersect with the history of abortion access?

Bianca Laureano and Patty Berne will explore these questions and more in June's episode of Crip Bits: Disability Justice is Reproductive Justice.
