Iโ€™m glad to see people talking about the need to repeal the #HydeAmendment & its effect on low-income folks especially WOC, QTPOC and more.. Lets also acknowledge why it even exists.. There has always been attempts to attack & regulate our bodies. This isnโ€™t new #BeBoldEndHyde
The systems of White supremacy, patriarchy and misogyny have always tried to regulate the bodies of POC. From slavery, forced sterilization of Black & Brown people, and through Hyde, the sexual & Reproductive lives of POC have always been one of attacks, regulation & denial
So as you continue to raise awareness, know that POC have always been leading this fight.. Fighting for autonomous sexual lives free from shame & discrimination has always been the life of POC & low income folks. Center them
