Reproaction expresses horror at the election of Donald Trump, and we acknowledge that millions of voters lined up behind a racist endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan. We acknowledge the pain felt by women who shared their stories of sexual assault with people who didn’t care. We recoil to see Black people, immigrants, Jews, Latinas, Latinos, Latinxs, Mexicans, Muslims, people with disabilities, queer people, and women targeted in the absolute worst way. This is a dark day for human rights.
Donald Trump said he wanted to punish women who have abortions, and Mike Pence has literally presided over the imprisonment of a woman of color who ended her pregnancy outside of a medical setting. Reproaction pledges active resistance to the vicious assaults we expect on access to abortion and reproductive health care, and as an intersectional, reproductive justice organization committed to grassroots direct action, we are ready to do what needs to be done to ensure the safety of communities in the face of racist, sexist fascism.
We acknowledge a long history of survival under the brutal choke of white supremacy, and are calling ‘in’ for four years of resistance.
