Since the ruling was published on Friday, leaders of black, Latino, Asian-American, and Native American groups have condemned the court's decision. Leaders say their communities will be hit hardest by abortion restrictions due to a myriad of problems, including existing health access gaps, financial difficulties, and a long history of criminalization.

"We are not surprised. The court has never served our community," said Lupe M. Rodríguez, Managing Director of theNational Latina Institute for ReproductiveJustice. Stated. It is against the will of the people. "
In many states, black and Latin women have a higher rate of abortion than white women, according to the Disease Control and Prevention Center, which collects data from state health agencies. Masu.
The overthrow of the Roe v. Wade case highlights the financial difficulties faced by black and brown women and the health crisis of their mothers, and many supporters say forced pregnancy is their result.

For example, black women are three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white womenAbortion leaders say that poor black and Latin women are due to abortion. I'm also worried that I don't have the money to go out of the state.

Poor women of all races are affected

CNN senior political analyst Nia-Malika Henderson said that one of the main reasons women choose to undergo an abortion is that they cannot financially support their children. I said it was for.

Since the right to abortion is determined by each state, the question is whether state authorities will expand the social safety net for women who are forced to give birth.

"They will have to get all kinds of medical care. Do you have paid parental leave for these jobs? This is poor women, whites, blacks, Latins of all races. We know that we fall disproportionately to women, Asians, "Henderson said. "They can't afford to go to another state where they can have an abortion."

Isra Pananon Weeks, Interim Standing Director and Chief of Staff of the Asian American and Pacific Women's Forum, said many Asian-American and Pacific women have said they have low-paying front-line service jobs without health insurance. Paid medical leave.

Abortion care is "full of language barriers, cultural stigmas, and low insurance coverage of the most vulnerable community members," and travel and abortion acquisition are already "not impossible." But it was difficult. "

"Gutting Roe blocks access to abortion care and puts the well-being and financial stability of millions of AAPI women and families at great risk," Weeks said.

'Need to fight back'

Black-led social justice group, the internal organs of the Roe v. Wade case, is the latest example of a lawmaker's deprivation of rights He said it was nothing more than.

NAACP said a statement with a leader that the Supreme Court's ruling would return the country to "a dangerous time in which basic constitutional rights exist only for a few elected people." announced.

NAACP Vice President of Policy and Legislation, Portia White, likened the abortion decision to a lawmaker who is suppressing black votes.

"They deprived us of our right to vote, and now women have lost their right to their bodies. What's next?" White said. "We cannot allow our future to fall into the hands of those who have decided to smash it all. We need to fight back."

White says The NAACP said it would mobilize voters for "the most important midterm elections the United States has ever faced" in November.

The movement for Black Lives leaders is that the Supreme Court's move is "another insult to the lives of blacks in this country, and those in power do not care about the health and well-being of blacks. Is continuously demonstrating. "

"As a black liberation movement guided by black feminist values ​​and commitment to abolition, we see Roe's collapse on what it is: the state is the most among us. Another way to criminalize, monitor and harm vulnerable people, "the group said in a statement.

Reproductive rights advocates in the Latin community also rejected this decision.

Unidos US President Janet Murgia said the Latin community already knew what it would be like to deprive them of their rights and consider normal activity a crime. Mr Murgia said his supporters were concerned that the ban on abortion would increase the likelihood of prosecution and punishment for poor and colored women.

"As a civil rights organization, we believe we must support the protection of women's rights, not the process of inciting women," she said. "The majority of women, and the majority of Latina, want the freedom to make their own decisions regarding their health and well-being, and believe that these decisions should be a private matter among healthcare providers. "

The Native American community will also suffer without access to abortion, defenders say.

Crystal Echo Hawk, Founder and Executive Director of Illumi Native, forces Native American women and girls to maintain bad relationships with abusive partners and traffickers if they are pregnant. He said he would face increased violence because he could be.

"Retal rights and systemic violence are inherently linked, with blacks, indigenous peoples, and colored women, transgender, non-binary, and two-spirit people already having sexual violence and maternal death. We are facing the people with the highest rates, "Echo Hawk said. "Access to abortion and reproductive care is the basis of safety and well-being. This is a matter of life and death for many in the native community."
