Demanding Bodily Autonomy

Against the Current No. 230, May/June 2024

ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 18, the day before the Democratic Party convention opens in Chicago, a coalition in defense of reproductive freedom and LGBTQ+ rights will hold a march and rally starting at 5PM CDT from the Water Tower Park. Bodies Outside Unjust Laws: Coalition for Reproductive Justice and LGBTQ+ Liberation is demanding national legislation to expand access to abortion, support families, and defend the rights of trans and queer people. The page also includes an endorsers form.

The coalition sees its values as aligned with and informed by reproductive justice and point to SisterSong’s definition:

“the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”

May-June 2024, ATC 230
