A recent Gallup Poll found that fewer men identify as pro-choice today than they did in 2008. The sexism that’s feeding the anti-choice side and why we need men to support women’s reproductive rights.
2009 ended with every writer under the sun reviewing the past decade: the best, the worst, the bizarre. Here’s my wish list of things the pro-choice movement should set out to achieve in the next 10 years…not just pay lip service to.
To keep attracting young people to the movement, relying on the fear of a return to a harrowing past isn’t enough. And it minimizes the essential work that is yet to be done in order to achieve true reproductive justice.
Pro-reproductive justice philosophy is grounded in empathy — the idea that we cannot judge another woman’s choice unless we’ve walked a mile in her shoes.
