350.org on Roe v Wade Supreme Decision of Supreme Court

WASHINGTON -

Today the United States Supreme Court has announced their decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision protecting a person’s right to an abortion.

In response to the Roe v Wade decision of the Supreme Court, May Boeve, 350.org Executive Director, said: 

“As a part of the larger movement for justice, 350.org has the obligation to stand up for reproductive rights here in the United States and worldwide. We are a movement-based organization — our work is intersectional by nature, and it’s important that we show up for our sibling organizations. Intersectionality means examining the overlap between systems of inequity — based on gender, race, disability, class etc. — and the effects created by these combinations of issues. Climate and reproductive rights are justice issues with clear intersections with class and race, and the people who are fighting to remove access to reproductive healthcare are the same people who are fighting to slow or halt climate action, financially and in the courts."

"Overturning Roe v. Wade means the Supreme Court isn’t just coming for abortion — they’re coming for the right to privacy and other legal precedents that Roe rests on, even the United States government’s ability to tackle the climate crisis. That is why intersectionality is so important right now, and for movements to come together in force to stand up and fight back. We collectively need to hold the Supreme Court, our politicians, and the president accountable to protecting the rights of all of us. The world is watching.

The climate movement has intersectional relationships with reproductive rights, gender issues, racial justice, class, labor and other social movements. That is why we are joining with kindred groups working for reproductive rights, and why we will continue to build stronger ties across movements."
