I’m Goin’ In!


Tomorrow I will take an 8 hour federal courts take home exam. 8 hours. of exam. in federal courts. It will be shocking if my brain does not ooze out of my ears at the end of the day….

That said, I am signing off until this beast is toast. In the meantime, check out Malika Sadaa Saar’s post on pregnant and birthing incarcerated women over at RH reality check. Here’s a snippet:

Our reproductive rights community has yet to be a voice for mothers behind bars, or a voice against the disproportional removal of vulnerable children from the care of their mothers. Whereas our mainstream reproductive movement has addressed women’s right to choose what happens to our bodies and our right to choose when to be a mother, low-income women of color are routinely denied the basic right to be mothers. The parameters of reproductive health and rights discourse must be expanded to also include the very right to mother and to raise one’s children with dignity and healing. Otherwise, we are in danger of playing out what we correctly criticize the pro-life community for doing — only demonstrating concern for the fetus.

See you on the other side.
