The End of Roe is About Race, Too

I am overwhelmed, but I want to say something about this moment, when Roe v. Wade is gone, when it feels like we are sliding, fast, down an icy slope, like we are on fire and screaming and they are just watching us burn; I want to say something about how this moment is not only a gender moment but a racial one. (No, I am not changing the subject. I am deepening it.)
