REMINDER: Monday’s #SCOTUS decision affirmed abortion rights, but many still struggle to get abortions due to sexist, classist, and racist policies like the Hyde Amendment. Let’s talk about the politician behind this cruel policy + why our #BeBoldEndHyde fight continues. 👇
Henry Hyde wanted to ban all abortions but settled for banning them just for people struggling to make ends meet.
Henry Hyde made his intentions crystal clear when he said: “I certainly would like to prevent, if I could legally, anybody having an abortion, a rich woman, a middle-class woman, or a poor woman. Unfortunately, the only vehicle available is the Medicaid bill.”
@SisterSong defines #reproductivejustice as our “human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”
All Above All’s work for RJ focuses on lifting bans on insurance abortion coverage. We believe everyone should be able to make their own decision about pregnancy & be able to access the health care they need, and that racism and classism make that reality impossible to achieve.
