Abortion rights are under attack. This morning, the nation woke up to the horrifying news that the Supreme Court made an initial draft decision in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health that would overturn Roe vs. Wade. This draft signals a total reversal by the court and the potential to undermine and overturn other important decisions impacting LGBTQ+ people, people of color, and others whose rights were gained after the Constitution was ratified. Today we must grapple with the real possibility that our highest court will not further equity and justice but instead choose to take away from more than half of the population in this country. Abortion rights are Queer rights, and we must take action.
