A popular Antifa website is promoting home abortion classes in order to “dismantle the white supremacist bio-medical patriarchy” in response to the swearing in of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The website Its Going Down claims that “autonomous pelvic care” is a “radical alternative to state sanctioned reproductive health.”
“Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation has led to a great gnashing of teeth and cries of concern that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that guaranteed the right to pregnancy termination under the 14th amendment, will be overturned,” the website asserts.
To make sure that people can still get abortions should Roe v. Wade be overturned, the far-left website is promoting a group called the Knoxville Abortion Doula Collective which teaches groups and individuals how to perform home abortions.
“Currently, in the tradition of gynepunk and folk herbal medical practice, the Knoxville Abortion Doula Collective and Plume & Seal Botanical Medicine are offering two workshops in Autonomous Pelvic Care for the lower Appalachian region. This radical community healthcare weekend is facilitated by trainers who are trans and queer, and this workshop will reflect a range of pelvic (reproductive/generative) support services. This is a space for queer/trans folks and all bodies, but the workshop focus is centered on services for people with uterine systems,” the website’s word salad claims.
“Topics discussed include menstrual support and regulation, herbal remedies for common vaginal complaints, self-managed abortion, how to safely offer radical pelvic care in a home-based setting, and more.”
The article claims that the leftist claims of wanting abortion to be “safe, legal and rare” comes from a “standpoint of race and class privilege as well as abortion stigma, and in the coming years we must work to dismantle this framework and replace both its ideology and its practical (legal and medical) manifestations with culturally appropriate, community-based alternatives.”
The radical group is requesting a $35-$75 donation from those who wish to learn how to perform abortions at home and state that “no previous medical background necessary.”
