Recently, a draft opinion from the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked, which could lead to the overturning of Roe vs. Wade.

As a women’s art organization, the Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA) believes all women have the right to choose. We strongly support women’s rights to privacy and autonomy of their bodies and equal access to health care for all.  

We understand overturning Roe will set women and our country back decades. Though this law will affect all of us, women of color, transgender, non-binary persons and others in underserved communities who already experience health care limitations will be the first to feel the results of this opinion and subsequent change of law. The removal of Roe could also lead to the erosion and dismembering of other laws, such as contraceptive access, gay marriage, and interracial marriage, endangering our democracy and additional freedoms. 

At this time, Roe vs Wade is still upheld by the original 1973 Supreme Court decision that a women’s right to privacy is intrinsically linked to the 14th Amendment. We must act to keep it that way. We stand with those protesting against the overturning of Roe and advocate for codifying Roe into law.
