The term “Reproductive Justice” was coined by Loretta Ross of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective and it applies a human rights framework to reproductive health advocacy. As defined by SisterSong, reproductive justice is “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”
Reproductive justice centers intersectionality and the experiences of people who are often marginalized in society, including people of color, people who are poor, and people who are queer and and trans. It calls attention to many aspects of reproductive health that are often overlooked, such as maternal death rate disparities for Black women in the US, discrimination in pregnancy healthcare for men who are transgender, economic barriers to abortion and prenatal care for people who are poor, stigmas surrounding menstruation, and effects of poverty and institutional violence on children.
