In the month since the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade, states across the country, including Georgia and Wisconsin, have moved to ban abortion. Congress scrambled unsuccessfully to protect the right to birth control and marriage. Each of these fundamental rights are threatened by the court’s ruling as they continue to attack rights that deeply impact marginalized people.
Abortion bans have already had a direct and devastating impact on people in low-wage jobs, people of color, and working families. They are facing enormous struggles to get time off work and come up with the money they need for this essential healthcare. The effects these bans will have on our society and economy are just beginning. You can learn more about the connection between reproductive justice and economic justice on our website.
