Radical Reproductive Justice: Foundation, Theory, Practice, Critique.

Radical Reproductive Justice: Foundation, Theory, Practice, Critique

Loretta Ross, Lynn Roberts, Erika Derkas, Whitney Peoples and Pamela Bridgewater, eds. (The Feminist Press at CUNY, 2017,500 pp)

An anthology of essays from members and supporters of SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, Radical Reproductive Justice collects and presents two decades of work defining and defending a human rights-based framework for reproductive health. This collection serves as a powerful distillation of the three human rights at the foundation of the reproductive justice movement: the right to not have children, whether through abortion, contraception or abstinence; the right to have children and to have autonomy over the circumstances of parenthood; and the right to parent children in safe and healthy environments. A comprehensive introduction to the reproductive justice movement, Radical Reproductive Justice powerfully asserts that bodily autonomy, self-determination and respect for individual conscience about family planning should inform reproductive rights advocacy and policy.
