Roe Was Never Enough VICE News Reports

    • News

After Roe v. Wade was overturned, many wondered what living in a post-Roe America would look like. But for a lot of Native people, Roe has never been a reality. Though the federal government is obligated to provide tribes with healthcare, decades-old restrictions on federal funding have severely limited the provision of abortion. 
Organizations like Indigenous Women Rising have been advocating for reproductive rights and abortion in Native communities for years. VICE News Reports’ Adreanna Rodriguez takes a dive deep into how IWR is filling the gap left by the government’s long history of manipulating Native people's reproductive well being… and how Native people have specific needs when it comes to reproductive justice. Needs that are deeply holistic and embedded in their cultural history.
This episode was reported and produced by Adreanna Rodriguez in partnership with Type Investigations, where Adreanna is an Ida B. Wells Fellow. It was edited by Adizah Eghan, Noy Thrupkaew, Cassi Feldman, and Stephanie Kariuki, with research assistance from Paco Alvarez.
