I hope in our righteous horror about the mass forced hysterectomies & sterilization happening in ICE facilities, that we listen closely to the disabled, Indigenous, Black & Immigrant women who have been reporting this same abuse for generations & were met w silence. #AbolishICE
Forced sterilization has been a continual and violent tool of white supremacist patriarchy.

It has been happening to BIPOC, disabled and incarcerated women for as long as America has existed.

It absolutely must end. https://www.pbs.org/independentlens/blog/unwanted-sterilization-and-eugenics-programs-in-the-united-states/
Also a reminder: ICE is only 17 years old.

It wouldn’t need to exist even if it was 217 years old. Still, we should remember that dismantling it is not nearly the impossible charge folks want to say it is.

Lastly, please do not come over her to argue against choice.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the CLEAR difference between a person having agency over their own body and being forced to have a hysterectomy.

I see your bad faith arguments from here & they’re unwelcome.
