STATEMENT FROM RASHAD ROBINSON, PRESIDENT OF COLOR OF CHANGE, ON DOBBS v. JACKSON WOMEN’S HEALTH ORGANIZATION RULING 

Rashad Robinson, president of Color Of Change, issued the following statement following the overturning of Roe v. Wade 

“The Supreme Court’s ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a catastrophe that far-right extremists have been working towards for half a century. The court has no right to coerce Black people into parenting, especially given America’s long history of criminalizing Black bodies and the exploitation of our communities. Black people, already profoundly impacted by abortion bans and disproportionately criminalized by the legal system, are sure to face the harshest levels of prosecution following today’s decision.

“Make no mistake — we were met with today’s tragic ruling because politicians refuse to address the root causes at play. The same right-wing elected officials trying to prevent us from abortion access are the same folks who actively refuse to remove barriers to voting, deny adequate health care, and continue to cut access to public benefits that help keep families living in poverty afloat. Prosecutors have the power to enforce laws that protect Black communities who are under threat from harmful tactics driven by the right-wing agenda. It's time for district attorneys and people in government to stand up for Black communities.”

“Black people's lives are at stake. We will continue to mobilize to prevent the next decision that harms our bodies and challenges our rights. Nothing will stop us from fighting for our freedom and continuing to build power for ourselves and our families.”
