Socialist Feminism & Reproductive Rights

Patriarchal capitalism creates gender oppression. “Breaking the glass ceiling” puts emphasis on the monetary value of working-class women, women of color, and trans people rather than the holistic equality needed in our society. Industries dominated by those who identify as female, such as teaching, nursing and childcare, are undervalued and underpaid. And let’s not forget the thousands of hours of unpaid caregiving, childcare and domestic responsibilities our society places on our femme comrades. Our rights and the subsequent stripping away of reproductive choice is enmeshed with patriarchy’s and capitalism’s need to control how we live our lives. 


As socialists we must support and fight for strong unions that have done the most to equalize wages and power between all genders in the workplace. We must strengthen and safeguard the resources and policies that maintain our socialist feminist vision while also reimagining and implementing institutional and societal change.

What are Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs)?

CPCs are anti-abortion organizations that lie to, shame, and intentionally mislead pregnant people about their reproductive healthcare options to block them from accessing abortion care. They are not certified healthcare clinics and do not follow privacy laws protecting personal and health information. CPCs advertise as women’s health clinics, sometimes called Pregnancy Resource Centers, that specifically target low-income pregnant people. They use search engine optimization to appear in online searches for abortion clinics. They promise free ultrasounds, STD testing, and family planning services to trick pregnant people into scheduling appointments. Once inside, they lie to patients about abortions, delay and cancel appointments and may employ intimidation tactics to dissuade patients from making an informed choice. Some push folks to put children up for adoption and are well compensated by adoption agencies. They have a financial incentive to encourage pregnant people to carry to term.
