This week Amber and Erika are discussing the leak of Dobbs, et. al. v. Jackson, et. al., the Supreme Court case which allegedly overturns the landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade protecting the right of to access abortion as healthcare. First, we outline the history of Roe, and then discuss the potential significance of its holding in other areas of life, including marriage, sexual freedom, and access to contraceptives. Through an intersectional analysis, we also highlight why the debate over abortion is especially nuanced for Black birthing people. Carceral injustice, lack of access to care, skyrocketing costs, wage discrimination, and affordable housing are all part of the equation in family planning for many people. Because these societal ills disproportionately affect Black people, it highlights the necessity of abortion being part of comprehensive medical care. Take a listen to get the facts and our point of view!
