アティアは、彼女がかつて支持したプロライフ運動を攻撃することによって彼女の金曜日の意見コラムを始めました. “そうだった 2010, 私は 22 これは私がダラス郊外にある福音教会での夕方の女性の聖書研究でした. The women were planning a pilgrimage to an antiabortion march,” 彼女は書いた.
“それでも, I felt uncomfortable protesting abortion clinics,” Attiah wrote, 追加する, “やがて, I left the church.”
Since the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. ウェイド, Attiah has been thinking about how wrong the Christian, pro-life stance that she once grew up around is wrong, especially the claim that she’d get from her colleagues that “Legalized abortion holds down the population of Black people in America.”
She claimed in her column that the opposite is true. “A post-Roe world will put Texas’s Black women under ungodly risk, both physically and legally.”
“The triumph of the more than 40-year evangelical crusade against abortion will mean that women will suffer, and Black women disproportionally,” Attiah declared. She cited CDC statistics to bolster her claim. According to one, “Black women are more than four times as likely to have had abortions as White women.”
The author cited another which showed the maternal mortality rate in Texas. “Black women died at a rate of 37.1 あたり 100,000 births. The comparable number for White women is 14.7.”
Attiah added, “今, many Black women facing high-risk pregnancies — and who don’t have the resources to easily travel out of state — will have no choice but to carry them out. All of this will lead to physical and economic hardships that will keep many Black women and their families in the social underclass.”
