This was a homemade job, that showed up on the campus of the University of New Mexico recently. And Native American students were not happy about it:
Feministing reports that a representative for 40 Days for Life, who were thought to be behind the posters, denied that they were associated with the group.
Student placards read, “Racism is not pro-life” and “We will not be used to further your political purpose.”
Native women–who face rates of sexual violence that are twice as high as the rest of the country–often severely lack access to reproductive health care. A recent report found that only 10 percent of the pharmacies in the Indian Health Service system offered Plan B over the counter. And thanks to the Hyde smendment, abortion isn’t covered under the IHS or Medicaid.
