Reproductive Rights Are Human Rights

If you believe in freedom for all, the right to bear arms, the right to make your own choice to wear a mask or get a vaccine, the right to decide what to put in or on your body, the right to worship how you want, the right to choose the flag you fly, then you must support reproductive rights. 

There is no difference. 

They’re all freedoms. And if you believe in freedom, you believe in reproductive rights. To cheery-pick what freedoms are okay and what freedoms are not is to engage in hypocrisy. To purport to believe in freedom is to mandate support of freedom for those who identify as women and all people regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, identity, gender, and sex. In other words, Roe v. Wade is a right. It must be defended and supported by all. 

The constitution and the bill of rights were meant to change with time. The framers expressly stated so. They stated that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights contain certain rights, but they should not be used to construe or deny or disparage other rights contained by the people. These rights include the right to privacy. And indeed, the supreme court has upheld this three times in the last 60 years, including Roe v. Wade. 

Being believes those who identify as women have complete autonomy over their bodies, reproductive rights are rights for all, all have the right to marry, and all people have the right to privacy in and out of the bedroom. 

What we’re saying is that Roe v. Wade is really about the right to privacy. Keep in mind that the right to privacy is the basis for HIPAA, same-sex or interracial marriages, buying contraception, and choosing to send your child to a private religious school. 

When reproductive rights are attacked, all rights are attacked. 

Being supports reproductive rights and freedoms. We believe those who identify as women have the right to choose and do with their body that which they choose. We believe this right is unalienable.
