Re­pro­duc­tive jus­tice

Orlando Sentinel - - OPINION -

Nov. 2: To HB265 and the brave war­riors fight­ing for re­pro­duc­tive jus­tice:

De­cid­ing to ter­mi­nate a preg­nancy is a per­sonal de­ci­sion for an in­di­vid­ual and this month, pub­lic of­fi­cials de­bated if par­ents should have to give no­ta­rized con­sent if their minor has a preg­nancy and wants to ac­cess an abor­tion.

This pol­icy will en­dan­ger those who can­not turn to their par­ents and do not have ac­cess to the ju­di­cial by­pass sys­tem, in­creas­ing un­safe abor­tions, es­pe­cially among al­ready op­pressed com­mu­ni­ties. This is the mo­ment we could look back on as what led Tal­la­has­see to re-in­ves­ti­gat­ing Florida’s pri­vacy laws to re­move safe­guards to abor­tion ac­cess for any­one.

Well, we are pay­ing at­ten­tion, we will vote you out, and we will win. If you want to talk about con­sent, in­vest in age-ap­pro­pri­ate sex­ual ed­u­ca­tion that in­cludes bod­ily au­ton­omy and the power of healthy re­la­tion­ships, with­out politi­cians in­volved. Cheyenne Drews Or­lando
