SisterLove, Inc. and ARC-Southeast piece featured in Rewire.News
On Monday, a piece authored by SisterLove's Jill Heaviside (If/When/How HIV-RJ Law and Policy Fellow) and Access Reproductive Care - Southeast's Oriaku Njoku (Co-Founder, Executive Director) was published by Rewire.News.
Their article discusses Georgia's recent anti-abortion legislation and emphasizes the work of grassroots advocates fighting to advance reproductive freedom for all Georgians.
From their piece:
"We know that abortion bans have nothing to do with improving the health of pregnant people or their families. If our legislators were serious about improving health outcomes, they would put resources toward improving Georgia’s abysmal maternal mortality rate and its disproportionate impact on Black women and women of color, work toward expanding Medicaid, or make necessary improvements to our foster care system.
Instead, they are prioritizing legislation that acts a method of state-sanctioned control over the lives, bodies, and freedom of many of our most marginalized communities—women, and especially Black women and women of color; queer, trans, and nonbinary folks; immigrants; and families striving to make ends meet."
