“A perfect example of rape culture,” Kimiya Factory, Black pro-choice advocate, says S.B. 8 leaves rape and domestic violence victims unprotected.
Kimiya Factory was just in college when she helped a desperate friend in need get an abortion.
“Her family would have disowned her and she had a full ride,” Factory tells theGrio. “When she conceived, she did take the measures to be safe and she still got pregnant nonetheless.”
Factory, executive director of social justice non-profit, Black Freedom Factory and creator of #ChangeRapeCulture, remembers her friend as one of many vulnerable young women facing punishment for pregnancy– those who didn’t even have the opportunity to use contraceptives.
