Down South, Activists Really Care

Decades ago, the term “reproductive justice” was coined to encompass all that was missing from a conversation about reproductive options for women of color. It included everything from higher risk of fibroids to unequal pay.

As increasingly restrictive abortion laws loom down south, activists are still fighting for it.

Groups like Access Reproductive Care-Southeast in Atlanta go above and beyond to meet women’s needs.

“They provide a kind of care that might be considered familial, booking travel and hotel rooms, taking women out for meals, and even putting them up for a night or two in their own homes,” writes Alexis Okeowo.
