Supreme Court Overturns Brandy v. Monica Ruling That Gave Women Right To Choose If The Boy Is Mine
The highest court of the land is in flux and it's no surprise to see women of color already bearing the brunt of these uncertain times. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of overturning 'Brandy v. Monica' yesterday, nullifying a landmark ruling that gave women the right to choose if the boy is mine.
"This is a major violation of civil liberties—if you deny women access to safely choose whether the boy is mine, they'll just find other means to decide—methods that often carry serious risk. Indeed, disputes over whom the boy belongs to have left a wake of dead bodies nationwide. That blood now lies on the hands of these Supreme Court Justices," said ACLU President Susan N. Herman.
“When Brandy and Monica stepped foot in that courthouse twenty years ago, they represented all women who needed access to DMs, call logs, and text messages to make an informed decision about the boy's allegiances."
