While researching women’s reproductive healthcare in Guatemala, I read a paper where an indigenous girl was interviewed & she explained that she had been raped & kept it a secret until she ended up with labor pains. She did not know that was how babies were made. #NJCURJ
I figured that was incredibly sad but that must have been a fluke & a product of the girl’s rural, traditional upbringing. Until Dr. Kathleen Mahoney, a guest lecturer in my #ReproJustice class mentioned her youngest pregnant patient to the lecture. #NJCURJ
She was 10 1/12 yrs old and her mother brought her in suspecting appendicitis. The nurses soon realized the girl was actually in preterm labor. Her uncle had raped her. She didn’t even have her first period yet. #NJCURJ

Today is the 32nd Anniversary of the release of #DirtyDancing-- many people's 1st exposure to #reprojustice. Come, let's talk about it.
For many, #DirtyDancing is their first exposure to reproductive justice. What is #reprojustice? @SisterSong_WOC explains sistersong.net/reproductive-j…
@SisterSong_WOC In case you didn't know, the entire plot of #DirtyDancing is based on what happens when Penny can't access safe, legal abortion care and what it was like pre #RoeVWade.

THREAD: The Trump Admin continues to tear into #reprorights & #reprojustice on all fronts, domestic & international. Today's news about the further expanded #GlobalGagRule aka #MexicoCityPolicy is the latest affront. More from @transscribe for @Rewire_News rewire.news/article/2019/0…
Yesterday, @transscribe published another @Rewire_News piece abt the wildly unsettling news that Trump Admin Officials attended a 'Make Families Great Again' event with Hungarian PM Orban. 2/ rewire.news/article/2019/0…
As @IntlWomen's Shannon Kowalski told @transscribe “The Making Families Great Again conference demonstrates insidious connections btwn authoritarian gov'ts, far-right nationalists & anti-choice mvmnts who conspire to strip women & gender diverse ppl of their rights.” 3/

Women are the majority in America.
Stop calling issues essential to our survival #identitypolitics.
We are paid 3/4--or less--than men are for the same work.
We are 80% of the minimum wage workers.
We are the majority of the working class & the working poor.
1/
Single mothers and women over 65 are the poorest people in America.
So when you talk about "economic justice" and the #FightFor15 you're talking about WOMEN--not the white guy Trumpers & Berners the MSM keeps writing about.

2/
The claim of #identitypolitics is meant to shut down discourse on #ReproJustice--but nothing contributes more to women's economic inequality than being forced to have children before she's finished school or is financially ready.
