Part of my reproductive justice agenda is to overturn Hyde. But the anniversary also made me think about all the other things that I want when it comes to repro justice. Here’s a partial list.
Working with reproductive-health and reproductive-justice organizations and advocates, I’ve noticed that people like me aren’t included in the discussions. No, it seems that people like me and I aren’t included too often because we’re of “a certain age”–40 years old and older, to be more precise.

Dear Representative Trent Franks and other anti-choice politicians: Stop claiming you care about women and babies. You didn’t care about me when I was raped, and you don’t care about the suffering of American people. How dare you suggest otherwise.
