Abortion Opponents and the Racist Police State



Abortion Opponents and the Racist Police State

State lawmakers and attorneys general are scrambling to preserve reproductive rights in the wake of a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion to overturn the Roe Vs. Wade precedent. Those who were paying close attention predicted the end of Roe months ago. Now, they’re warning that the far right will not even be satisfied with banning all abortions.

My guest, Michele Goodwin, writing in The Nation, says, “The anti-choice movement has succeeded at quietly criminalizing pregnancy to levels not previously seen, making it so that to be pregnant and poor in this country is to play a game of roulette with one’s privacy and constitutional rights. These criminalization efforts make it clear that the fight doesn’t stop at abortion.”
