Apparently the Supreme Court is going to overturn Roe v Wade. Well, maybe. So, pro-abortionists muse on what must be done.
Situating abortion rights within the fight for fair access to health care for all is the smart next step. The menu of reforms must provide unhindered contraceptive access, including making the pill available over the counter; address the US’s appalling rates of infant and maternal mortality, which are experienced by Black women in particular; provide gender-inclusive and gender-affirming healthcare for LGBTQ+ people; and provide fertility treatment for all, not just those who can afford it.
Quite what lopping dicks and tits off has to do with abortion isn’t certain. More:
To counter the chill of this ultra-conservative supreme court, we propose a long-term goal: a constitutional amendment providing for gender equity. This super-charged Equal Rights Amendment would guarantee full equality and protection for sexuality and reproductive freedoms for all and without harmful government interference or denial of access to key services because of one’s income, race or geography. Let’s begin this bold action by building the political power necessary to make such an amendment a reality.
That appeal to the Constitution again.
Which does rather seem to miss what happens if Roe is overturned. Abortion becomes a matter for State law. Something that is entirely democratically decided by the voters in each state.
So why not have a campaign which works to get people to vote for abortion being legal in their state?
Presumably the answer is that some number of states would vote against the idea. So much for democracy, eh?
