Uplifting, inspiring, educational, poetic and wide ranging!

    Love, Liberation and Bodily Autonomy

    Love, Liberation and Bodily Autonomy

    As an intimate wellness brand for people with vulvas, Rosebud Woman denounces the recent SCOTUS decision to deny a woman’s basic human right to bodily sovereignty in the United States of America. This ruling allows regressive and misogynistic states, dominated by men, to codify forced birth, which at its essence is womb slavery. This decision will kill women: it is no less than murder via religious dogma and political repression.
    Every informed healthcare organization treating women has stated that this decision is bad for women, including the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, The American College of Nurse Midwives, Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health, the American Academy of Sexuality Educators, The International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health- as well as anti-sexual violence organizations such as the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, among thousands of others. On the “other side”: politicians and white evangelical protestant preachers. This decision is not only bad for women, it’s bad for men, it’s bad for children and families, and it’s bad for the country.
    We see a future where comprehensive sexuality education, a full range of readily available birth control methods and a complete medical toolkit for women’s sexual and reproductive health are the norm. To us, full spectrum medical care includes period equity, fertility support, pregnancy termination, healthy pregnancy, birth and postpartum care, female sexual wellness, rape and sexual violence prevention and care, and menopause care. We see a world where women’s choices for their bodies are unquestioned by governments and churches. We support the Women’s Healthcare Protection Act, which takes this issue out of the now very partisan courts and into the legislature.
    We note that the procreative yes is more likely to come in a world that is welcoming to children after they are born. A world that is economically supportive of families, with health systems, educational systems, and ecosystems that provide the hope of a positive future for all beings. Perhaps those that would overrule women’s health experts might instead focus on creating a country more worthy of bringing children into, where they don’t go hungry, aren’t debt slaves in exchange for a functional education,and aren’t killed at school, the grocery store, in church or at the movie theater by men wielding assault rifles: a truly pro-life world.
    We remain committed to creating beautiful products, accurate educational materials, and inspiring content for a full, happy, self-determining sensual, sexual and reproductive life in a female body. 
    Our community honors the deep evolutionary wisdom of the feminine, the natural intelligence of women’s bodies, and trusts women to make the right choices for themselves and their families.
