Reproductive Justice

Good brief discussion here of the Reproductive Justice movement, which seeks to move beyond just issues of reproductive choice. A quote from Maria Nakae, Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice:

By placing our reproductive health and rights within a social justice framework, the Reproductive Justice Movement offers an authentic way for us to understand how reproductive oppression – the control and exploitation of our bodies, sexuality, and reproduction – is a result of intersections of multiple oppressions based on race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, age and immigration status, and is inherently connected to the struggle for social justice and human rights.

This ties in well with recent work by Laurie Shrage, seeking to reposition discussions of reproductive rights in a justice framework. For more on reproductive justice, see Sister Song and Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice.
