Based on the articles "What's Love Got to do With It" and "A New Vision for [...] Reproductive Rights," it is very clear the ways in which women are already disadvantaged in relation to reproductive justice, and the fact that further legislation is attempting to make things even more complicated is devastating. Just looking at the ways in which health care and abortion are trying to be changed and demonized is heartbreaking, to the point where pregnant women who are dying can potentially be denied abortion that would save their life, ergo being denied proper health care, is completely unreal to me.
I feel as though of the most important things that both the Crunk Feminist Collective and the ACRJ focus on is the way in which poor women and women of color are really the ones that are being targeted in all of these bills and amendments. Although the CFC focuses more so on African American women, and the ACRJ specifically on Asian women, their sentiments are the same. Women must be able to receive proper access to reproductive health services (reproductive health care providers), reproductive rights (legal protection to health services), and reproductive justice (woman's control of her own body, sexuality, and reproduction). I find myself confused that there are so many women who are denied all of the above, and yet there are those advocating for these women to lose out on the opportunity to ever have access to it, and also taking it away from those fortunate enough to have such access. It seems as though many politicians are so focused on getting rid of abortion that they are willing to risk all services that assist women and families in being safe and healthy, many services that have nothing to do with abortion in any way.
