What an end to Raw vs. Wade means black America


This week Amber and Erika discuss the Dobbs leak, et. The. v. Jackson et al. , the Supreme Court case that allegedly overturned the landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade protecting the right to abortion as health care. First, we outline Roe’s history, then discuss the potential importance of containing it in other areas of life, including marriage, sexual freedom, and access to contraceptives. Through a multi-pronged analysis, we also highlight why the abortion debate is particularly different for people who are born black. Gross 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 blacks, they highlight the need for abortion to be part of universal medical care. Listen to get the facts and our point of view!
