Reproductive Justice 101

What is reproductive justice?

According to In Our Own Voice, Reproductive Justice is the belief that all people have…

  1. The right to have children;

  2. The right to not have children; and

  3. The right to nurture the children we have in a safe and healthy environment

Since the birth of the movement in 1994, Reproductive Justice organizations have been established across the country, including In Our Own Voice. A list of our Reproductive Justice sister organizations are below.
