Human Trafficking: A Reproductive Justice Issue

By Verónica Bayetti Flores, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health at 1:23pm
At the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, we work under the framework of reproductive justice. Bringing together reproductive rights and social justice, a reproductive justice framework recognizes that the factors influencing women's abilities to autonomously create and live in the families they want go beyond the issues traditionally spoken about in the reproductive rights movement. At NLIRH we recognize that issues as seemingly far-reaching as immigration and economic security are in fact intricately connected to the ways people access reproductive health services and their ability to lead healthy lives. Through this framework, then, it is easy to see that human trafficking is a reproductive justice issue.
