By Breitbart. The vice president of government affairs for Our Own Voice, National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice, said at a protest on Tuesday at the U.S. Supreme Court that banning or restricting abortion is a throwback to “breeding” black slaves.
“Black women coined the term reproductive justice 25 years ago,” Jessica Pickney said, adding that the goal of getting that justice was to “dismantle reproductive oppression.”
“Reproduction oppression looks like forced breeding of enslaved black women,” Pickney said.
The protest, organized by pro-abortion and left-wing organizations like Planned Parenthood, NARAL, the Women’s March, and MoveOn.org was in response to several states recently crafting and passing legislation to protect the unborn and, eventually, sending a court battle over abortion back to the high court where the 1973 Roe v. Wade made abortion on demand the law of the land. . .
“It is no coincidence that the parts of this country with the worst maternal maternity rates, the highest incidence of voter suppression and overall troublesome health outcomes for black women are the same states that wish to eliminate our access to abortion care,” Pickney said.

Rep. Sheri Bustos, chairwoman of the DCCC, canceled a $1,000-per-person fundraiser for fellow Illinois Rep. Daniel Lipinski. Lipinski, who opposes abortion, is facing a primary challenge from a progressive pro-abortion Democrat.
Although she didn’t directly say why she is backing out of the event, Bustos released a statement that tied the decision to the controversy surrounding the strict abortion laws being enacted in Republican-led states.
“I’m proud to have a 100 percent pro-choice voting record and I’m deeply alarmed by the rapidly escalating attacks on women’s access to reproductive care in several states,” Bustos said. (Read more from “Democrats Cancel Fundraiser for Their Own Congressman Because of His Anti-Abortion Views” HERE)
