As many advocates well know, success can be paradoxically frustrating. In Massachusetts, and especially in Cambridge, we are very fortunate to have found real success around many of the issues championed by the reproductive justice movement. This state has universal health care and excellent access to family planning and contraceptive services. In my community, these things are sometimes regarded almost as a bygone victory, something like a woman’s right to vote – of course, we are very grateful, but the barbarians are hardly battering at those gates anymore.
