Bigger than Roe March

For more than fifty years, the Texas GOP has combatted the progression of women/ uterus owner rights. The only reason Jane Roe had to go to the Supreme Court to begin with was because of Texan abortion restrictions. The Texas Heartbeat Bill motivated the GOP to pursue confiscating this right that was never theirs to take. I'm fed up with it. I had an abortion in Texas in July 2021, and everyday since the fall of Roe, I feel like my body is so far from me, like I'm chasing after it. As a Texas educator, I feel a duty to stand up for those who weren't as lucky as I am. In the state with the highest maternal morbidity rate, the need for action is urgent.

We have to fight for our most vulnerable under the White Supremacist patriarchy: Black women and girls/ uterus owners whose bodies are much more likely to be treated as disposable. None of us are disposable. We exist in the world and dream of building lives for ourselves and contributing to a better world. We are more than something that doesn't exist yet. As I am a woman with ADHD, we will also be calling attention to the struggles of pregnancy and abortion access for neurodivergent uterus owners and those with physical and mental disabilities. We all deserve to be seen as we are, as we truly are, defined not by our wombs but by our minds, our personhood. Come, let's fight for each other and tend to our wounds.

Everyone is welcome here no matter your anatomy! We are all fighting for body autonomy together.
