Marsha P. Johnson Institute: Supreme Court Ruling on Roe V. Wade Is an Unjust Attack on Human Rights
Ohio Pen/10180544

COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the full ramifications of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade are considered, Elle Moxley, Founder and Executive Director of the Marsha P. Johnson Institute released the following statement:

"Today's decision has horrifying implications on the transgender community. It is confirmed, once again, that in today's America there is no reproductive justice. The human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy has been stripped from us. This America does not want us to have the right to be ourselves and make reproductive decisions for ourselves. And they never did.

Particularly, for the transgender community, the timing is not a coincidence. The goal is to continue to strip us of our rights, to see us as less-than-human. We will not stand on the sidelines and be witnesses to this human rights atrocity. It is time to come together and invite trans people into this space. If we are not free, you are not free.

MPJI serves to protect and advocate for the full betterment of the Black transgender community; as we recalibrate and look for access to reproductive care to continue to diminish across states, particularly in the south, we are committed to serving our community.
