TW: Abortion

 

What is freedom? It’s the 4th of July, and while we are grateful for our veterans who fought for our country's freedoms, we are finding it hard to celebrate when not all of us are truly free. On Friday, June 24, the Supreme court overturned Roe vs Wade and our hearts are HEAVY. Historically those with means have always been able to get safe abortions and always will, so while this ruling affects all of us, it disproportionately affects Black and Brown people living in poverty.   Today we’re examining some of the implications of this ruling and its connections to history together. 

 

We’re exploring:

 

  • The “simpler times” theory and how it is all about control of others
  • How Emily is struggling balancing her admiration for Ruth Bader Ginsberg with frustration
  • What will happen when white women take a stand, and what issues will it highlight that we have ignored
  • Getting uncomfortable in activism - it is not a spectator sport
  • How the act of controlling someone else's body dehumanizes us
  • The ways “leaving it to the states to decide” echos slavery and why it is the federal governments job to protect our rights
  • Our continued fight for a country where we can all have freedom
