Standing on the Side of Reproductive Justice

Even two days later, it’s still shocking. Not surprising, as many of us had been mentally and emotionally girding ourselves for June. But no one expected the leak that dropped the probable outcome of the Dobbs case on us nearly two months early.

The leaked Supreme Court draft opinion confirmed our fears: the court seems ready to burn up decades of precedent protecting fundamental bodily autonomy and upholding reproductive justice. Even as access to abortion has already been severely eroded in dozens of states, a ruling anything like the leaked draft would be the gravest blow of all. 

We are angry. Anyone who values the right to bodily autonomy should be angry – and deeply worried. Should Roe be overturned, divisions will slash across the American landscape far more sharply than what Justice Alito appears to lament in his draft (and ludicrously blame on Roe). We also know all too well that the argument made in this draft opinion menaces other rights – including the milestone decisions in Lawrence v Texas (right to privacy in sexual relations between consenting adults) and Obergefell v. Hodges (freedom to marry). 

Horizons Foundation unequivocally stands with women and all people seeking abortion services in their right to make their own choices about their bodies and their reproductive lives. As Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote, “The decision whether or not to bear a child in central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself.”

Horizons is proud to support reproductive justice both internationally through our Global Faith and Equality Fund (GFEF) and nationally through our funding partnership with the Rights, Faith and Democracy Collaborative (RFDC). We will continue to be partners and to support organizations on the front lines.

There is so much at stake – for all of us.

We have compiled below a short list of organizations working to protect reproductive rights. Please consider supporting these organizations – and the many others – working on this day and night.
