For this week’s discussion board I want you to think about how we construct reproduction America, and how the Reproductive Justice Movement is responding to that system.
Reproductive Justice argues that the entirety of our sexuality-reproduction spectrum is structured by gender, race, and class. From a feminist perspective, what are some specific examples of this (i.e. can you point to places where gender/race/class/etc. clearly impact people’s experiences with reproduction)? How are people empowered and/or disempowered within our current reproductive health system? How do public policies (i.e. laws, public programs, etc.) impact reproductive choice in our society?
Finally, consider if “politicizing” reproduction is counter-productive to public health and/or social equality. Do you believe that there is a way to de-politicize reproductive health issues such as abortion, contraception, and sex education? What approach to improving the situation would you take?
