Bodily autonomy, privacy, and access to abortion all matter for people with disabilities. Now, an upcoming Supreme Court decision may threaten our rights. There is a lot of information about what is happening at the Supreme Court and how it affects our rights, but most of it is not accessible or easy to understand. “Our Bodies, Our Rights: What’s Going On at the Supreme Court?” explains the court case happening at the Supreme Court, and how it could affect abortion access and our right to privacy.
This toolkit answers questions like:
- What is Roe v. Wade?
- What is Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization?
- Why does abortion matter to people with disabilities?
- Why do bodily autonomy and self-determination matter to people with disabilities?
- What is the right to privacy and what does it include?
These issues impact people with disabilities, and it’s important that we have accessible information about what’s going on at the Supreme Court.
The toolkit is available in two versions:
- Our Easy Read edition. The Easy Read version is written in Plain Language. It uses large text and uses images to support the text.
- A Plain Language version with smaller text and not as much white space.
