SFC Statement on SCOTUS decision overturning Roe vs Wade

We at Sustainable Food Center, believe that access to safe, legal abortion is a necessary part of comprehensive health care and a constitutional right.

The recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs. Wade and the triggering of a full abortion ban in our state in 30 days will have an irreconcilable impact on our communities.

Access to affordable, equitable and comprehensive maternal care in Texas is already a challenge for the majority of low income families, particularly for women of color.

Research has shown that the availability of safe, secure and legal abortion access has a clear positive impact on women’s, families’ and children’s lives - including overall improvements on health and quality of life, labor force participation, economic and educational attainments, marriage patterns, reduced child neglect and abuse, and more.

We support the individual right to choose whether or not to have children, the number and spacing of children, and the opportunity to access information, education, and health services to make these life-altering decisions.

We will not remain silent when unjust decisions are made that will directly impact the health and livelihood of every Texan. When our government seeks to limit individual rights and jeopardizes the lives and humanity of so many families and communities, we must stand together with the most vulnerable, and show courage and compassion even in the darkest days. These are the moments when our integrity matters most.
