A Commitment to Racial Justice
Preterm stands in solidarity with the activists in Cleveland and around the country who seek an honest conversation about race in this country, and who seek safe, healthy communities for their families.
Why? Because we support everyone's right to have children, not to have children, and parent the children they have with dignity. Because we believe our patients deserve to live in healthy, safe neighborhoods, free from violence. That's reproductive justice. That's the vision we strive for every day.
As an organization that has served women and families of all means and identities for decades, we know how race, discrimination, and poverty shape the reproductive lives of our patients. Because of racial injustice, women of color are both more likely to need abortions, and less likely to be able to afford them.
For us, reproductive justice includes racial justice.
