Fears for Reproductive Freedom Across USA


“Shame on us if we let this stand. We must organize, mobilise and vote like our lives depend on it. Because they do.”  So blogged Equality California after a leaked document, bravely published on Monday by Politico indicates that the Supreme Court of the United States may overturn the 1973 ruling “Roe versus Wade” which guaranteed the right to abortion across the USA.  If this happens, then advocates for women, LGBTQIA and other groups all expect that the religious right wingers who have been manoeuvring for years over abortion, will turn their attention on overturning laws protecting samesex marriage and contraceptive rights.  The Guttmacher Institute Think Tank reports that around twenty six states would quickly act to crush abortion rights if Roe versus Wade falls.  “NARAL Pro-Choice America noted in a press release: “These bans and attacks on abortion access fall hardest on those most marginalised, including people of colour, LGBT+ people, people with low incomes, and those in rural communities.”  Activists are preparing if necessary to take direct action and the movement for reproductive freedom underground, should the religious right triumph at the Supreme Court.
