“My Abortion Saved My Life”

Cazembe Murphy Jackson (he/him), a Black trans activist living in Atlanta, Georgia, shares why his access to abortion was vital to his life. After developing severe depression following a sexual assault, and quickly learning he was pregnant, Cazembe’s abortion saved him from suicide. In the first short of Trans Bodies, Trans Choices, Cazembe’s story demonstrates the life-saving urgency of abortion access.

As abortion rights hang in the balance, TransLash Media, in coalition with our partners, is spotlighting the reproductive justice needs of transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming people through Trans Bodies, Trans Choices: a video series which gives voice to those often left out and left behind in the current conversation. Reproductive justice has been critical, even life saving for our community. That’s why we are focusing on these trans stories throughout this Trans Month of Visibility: to center trans people and bring our community out of the shadows on this important topic.
