WHO IS PRO CHOICE SOUTH BEND?
what is reproductive justice?
This phrase was first used in the by organizations promoting equal rights for Native Women and women of color. The concept of "reproductive justice" brings together the areas of reproductive rights and social justice work.
A working definition of the term was developed by the group Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice:
"Reproductive Justice is the complete physical, mental, spiritual, political, economic, and social well-being of women and girls, and will be achieved when women and girls have the economic, social, and political power and resources to make healthy decisions about our bodies, sexuality, and reproduction for ourselves, our families, and our communities in all areas of our lives."
