Mi nombre es Thelma. Soy organizadora con justicia Migrante, líder y vocera de la comunidad migrante en Vermont.


Mi experiencia como mujer y como madre me hace pensar mucho en quienes no han tenido una elección, por aquellas que tuvieron que ser madres sin querer,y por las que quieren ser madres y no las dejan ser. Ser madre es hermoso, pero cuando se es planeado, cuando se tiene una red de apoyo, cuando se quiere ser madre; de lo contrario es una violacion a los derechos. Nosotras estamos enfrentando y luchando por derechos laborales, por que no nos criminalicen, por que no nos deporten y también porque nuestros derechos reproductivos sean respetados y poder tener realmente acceso a información y opciones, que no se decida por nosotras el ser madres o no.


Para las mujeres migrantes en Vermont es importante que nuestros derechos de reproducción sean respetados y no se vean afectados en un futuro.


Por eso queremos que el estado proteja para siempre el derecho de libertad reproductiva y con esto ser ejemplo para el resto del país.

My name is Thelma. I am an organizer with Migrant Justice, a leader and spokesperson for the migrant community in Vermont.

 

My experience as a woman and as a mother lead me to think a lot about who has had the right to choose, those who have had to become a parent without wanting to and who want to become parents and have not been allowed to do so. Being a parent is a beautiful thing but when it is planned, when you have a network of support, when it is what you really want. On the other hand, having to have a baby when you don’t want to is a violation of our rights. In my community we are facing many challenges; fighting for labor rights, struggling against discrimination, deportations and we also want to have our reproductive rights respected. We also need to have true access to information about reproductive services in order to really understand our options. No one should decide for us who has a baby and who does not.

 

For migrant women in Vermont is it important that our reproductive rights be respected and that they continue to be protected in the future.

 

This is why we want the state to protect the reproductive freedom of all and become an example for the rest of the country.

Reproductive liberty is health freedom autonomy dignity justice .
