On February 18th, our co-operative hosted a presentation by Ash Williams and Mars Earle of Carolina Abortion Fund. Because of privacy concerns and challenges capturing some discussion audio, the 90 minute event has been edited down into a 60 minute recording.
"Reproductive Justice is organizing beyond institutional bounds, beyond the medical industrial complex and beyond the Constitution, towards self determination for all people… We shouldn't be talking about abortions needing to be 'safe and legal' because it inherently marginalizes those who can't access them safely or legally. So I'd like to challenge the language of 'safe and legal,' especially as we think about the going away of Roe."
Carolina Abortion Fund (CAF) is a 501-c3 nonprofit founded in 2011 by a group of clinic defenders who were tired of seeing patients delaying or cancelling their appointments just because they couldn’t afford the full cost out of pocket.
