Oregon could make abortion affordable regardless of immigration status
By Amy Casso
For me, the struggle for reproductive autonomy has never been separate from the struggle for justice for immigrants.
That’s true for many women in my family, too, whose ability to make reproductive health decisions have been deeply connected to their status as workers and to the conditions in which they lived. Our family’s journey from South Texas to Oregon as farmworkers is like so many who traveled in search of a life with dignity for themselves and their children. The struggle for living wages, dignity in the workplace, and access to needed health care are all connected through these human stories.
