Abortion and reflections on racial justice
On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States dismantled federal protections for access to abortion, allowing a cascade of state laws that criminalize pregnant people, their healthcare providers, and other supporters. Through a racial justice lens, this article examines abortion rights as a demand for reproductive freedom. Psychotherapists on the frontline, listening to girls’ and women’s stories of sexual trauma, are encouraged to see our work in a historical and political frame.
