No Bernie, There’s No Economic Justice Without Abortion Access

On Thursday, Senator Bernie Sanders flew to Nebraska to campaign for Health Mello, a Democrat running for Mayor of Omaha. The stop is part of Bernie’s “Unity Tour” with Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez — the beginning of a national effort to rebuild and unite Democrats around a shared vision for the party’s future.

Prison That Forces Inmates to Give Birth in Shackles Being Sued

Last week, a former inmate of Milwaukee County filed a lawsuit alleging that multiple pregnant people were forced to give birth in shackles while being held there. This comes on the heels of another lawsuit against the jail in December of 2016, when a newborn baby died shortly after birth. Feministing has covered this issue for years, yet little has changed – our justice system is still actively abusing inmates and claiming it’s for our protection.

Abortion Organizations In the South Need Your Support More Than Ever

As a young person growing up in rural Georgia, I mostly heard about abortion in coded language, typically through gossip. When folks said, “well you know she went to Atlanta or Savannah,” they were insinuating that someone had gone to have an abortion in one of the closest cities with clinics.

Fighting Texas’s Anti-Abortion Burial and Cremation Law With Art and Used Tampons

In a year chock full of attacks on reproductive rights, Texas’s House Bill 201 may get the award for The Worst of the Worst. This charming regulation mandates that all “fetal remains” from abortion and miscarriage at medical facilities be buried or cremated.

Woman Sentenced to 20 Years for Having an Abortion Appeals Her Ruling

Purvi Patel, the Indiana woman currently serving 20 years for having an illegal abortion, finally had the opportunity to appeal her case in front of the Indiana State Court of Appeals on Monday. Patel is the first woman in the U.S. to be convicted for having an illegal abortion and, if her conviction is upheld, it could present a tremendous uphill battle for reproductive justice advocates.

Missouri State Representative is an Embryo Vigilante

Surprise, surprise. Missouri’s state representatives are coming for our rights—again. This time, the threat comes in the form of an ultra-archaic resolution pushed forward by Republican Missouri Rep. Mike Moon. Because once again, as we all know, none-uterus-having humans are just so good at proposing laws and regulations regarding other people’s bodies.
