Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS): Reproductive Justice

Provides an overview of resources at Fordham University Libraries covering women, gender, and sexuality.

Reproductive Justice

"Reproductive justice is a contemporary framework for activism and for thinking about the experience of reproduction. It is also a political movement that splices reproductive rights with social justice to achieve reproductive justice. The definition of reproductive justice goes beyond the pro-choice/pro-life debate and has three primary principles: (1) the right not to have a child; (2) the right to have a child; and (3) the right to parent children in safe and healthy environments. In addition, reproductive justice demands sexual autonomy and gender freedom for every human being."
