It's all about reclaiming knowledge and control over our bodies.
Because knowing your body parts and functions means greater understanding of self.
Because due to high cost, lack of availability and other factors, clinical abortions are already not an option for many people.
Because as legislation further threatens access, it is important to develop community based abortion options rather than solely depending on the state for solutions.
Because creating viable and supportive abortion options for the present might mean recirculating the wisdom of past and present cultures and generations.
Because the dominant health care programs in the US function within a system of white supremacy, strict class divisions, assumed heterosexuality, enforced gender binary, capitalism and specialized knowledge.
Because mainstream culture thrives off of alienation from our bodies and our unfortunate dependence upon doctors.
Because of soo many things but mostly...
Because there is so much to be learned by sharing together outside of those structures as much as possible.
