SPARK’s Statement on Brett Kavanaugh

“We’re supposed to love life, right? And protect mothers and ban abortion because abortion is about ending babies lives, right? But then we see cuts to WIC, [Women, Infants & Children benefits], we know women are being chained to beds to give birth,” Paris Hatcher of SPARK Reproductive Justice points out. The entire idea pushed by conservatives that we are concerned with a “culture of life” is proved false by the way our society treats mothers–certain mothers, anyway.

Former Executive Director Paris Hatcher joins Laura Flanders on GRITtv to speak on her reproductive justice work in Atlanta and how the rest of the country can learn from the work women of color are doing on state and local levels.
