This blog began in 2012 as an exploration of rights violations in birth and quickly expanded to discussing the connection of those violations to the full spectrum of reproductive health injustices faced by women and pregnant people. In addition to talking about reproductive justice, we discuss the many, many other cultural aspects of #howwehatewomen – because misogyny is the root of all of the injustices faced by women in their reproductive lives.
Pregnant people do not lose their most basic human rights, nor do they suddenly become subject to someone else’s authority over their bodies simply because of their pregnant status. A pregnant individual is clearly the most invested person in her health and in the interest of her fetus.
Birth Anarchy is not an anarchist page. It is a rights page.
This page identifies as an intersectional feminist page, devoted to the inclusion of non-binary pregnant and birthing folks, and the elevation of the voices of women and the most marginalized people who suffer under unjust systems.
