abortion ACCESS RESOURCE GUIDE
who we are
Abortion rights are workers rights. Academia is often a hostile place for both parents and pregnant people. In addition to the health risks pregnant people face, workplace discrimination and an overall lack of support is also commonplace. Bodily autonomy is one’s most basic right as a person. As people, it is among our most basic rights to be able to choose if and when we would like to become parents. Our workplaces must be committed to honoring this right by providing necessary support for both parents and those who choose not to become parents.
As a union and workers’ movement, AFT Academics is committed to making sure abortion care is accessible to all people who may need it. Workers deserve access to all types of medical care–including reproductive healthcare and abortion–safely, privately, and with dignity. In order to reflect the changing availability of access to safe abortion, we call for our employers to redouble their commitment to providing holistic healthcare by increasing paid time off, increasing available sick leave, and increasing workers’ wages to cover potential costs arising from the need for out of state travel.
