“[I]t’s clear those who fight against reproductive choice for women of color know nothing of why women choose abortion Rather than create fake concern for a community these people have never set foot in, Life Always should spend their energies helping us address the reasons why women decide to choose abortion. The procedures we help fund are because out community is among the least likely to have regular access to healthcare, family planning and comprehensive sex education. Our services exist because our women are among the most likely to be victims of sexual assault…
“Women have a legal right to access abortion services and should not be shamed regarding the personal choices they make. Abortion is a personal decision, not a political discussion. We will not be moved moved by this anti-choice attempt to hijack our communities.”
