Roe is dire. As an abortion activist, I’ve seen firsthand that stripping one right simply starts a domino effect: more will fall.
So this morning I married the love of my life while I still can as a queer person, and tomorrow I will continue to fight for abortion access for all.
In my last piece for The Advocate, I argued that queer people need access to abortion too and that the then-impending Supreme Court decision on Roe v.
Wade would not affect only straight cis women but trans and nonbinary people as well. Now the day has come that the federal right to abortion has been overturned, and states have been left to decide whether or not and how severely to restrict access to abortion.
