(en) France, UCL - UCL Tract, Ten years soon, and PMA for all is still not here ! (ca, de, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 28 Apr 2021 09:08:47 +0300

The right to assisted reproduction for all cannot be begged for, it is obtained through the struggle of the oppressed. ---- Throughout France, we will march for the right to assisted reproduction for all and the freedom of women, lesbians or not, and trans people, to dispose of their bodies and access parenthood. On the eve of the international lesbian visibility day, the Union Communiste Libertaire will be alongside those who are mobilizing and calling to build a front of struggles for the PMA for all. ---- Since 2012, the mobilizations for PMA for all have not weakened. Yesterday like today, the government sat on its promises. We will stand up to them because it is in the struggle of the oppressed that our hope lies.

My body my choice
Several thousand women are forced to travel to other countries each year to access assisted reproduction. Several thousand euros are spent. For those from below, who do not have the money, it is resignation or artisanal PMA, illegal in France, and its difficult journey. To abolish the heteropatriarchate, it is necessary to abolish its privileges. It is a question of justice, it is a question of class.

They mourn the drop in birth rates and restrict reproductive rights for all.
Last February, the Senate reduced and rejected the measures in favor of PMA for All in the bioethics law. A third reading must be held but the announcements are long overdue. We don't forget that for the past 10 years, many women and trans people have been waiting. The issue of access to assisted reproduction for couples of women, trans people and for single women is a political issue of deconstructing the traditional family. It is to show that women can emancipate themselves from men to found families coming out of these patterns, with different solidarities. By restricting this right, the state guarantees the existence of the heterosexual family, the cornerstone of capitalism as a space for the production and reproduction of the exploited.

What are the arguments of the anti-PMA ? It doesn't matter whether the father bangs or doesn't pay child support. It only needs to keep its symbolic place in the patriarchal order.

The restriction of this right is an expression of nationalist politics. How does it work ? By imposing a national novel: the one that dictates that to be part of the national majority, the "national body", one must be heterosexual, of Christian culture and be a white person.

In 2021, we commemorate the 5 years of the Orlando attack, a homophobic mass crime that claimed the lives of 49 people and left 59 injured. It is a reminder that effectively combating homophobia, biphobia, lesbophobia and transphobia cannot be limited to a few statements of support ; it is above all a long day-to-day work, of struggle for equal rights and against all acts, remarks and homophobic and transphobic behaviors, and more generally against all oppressions, to develop real solidarity against the oppressors.

Tract to download
To put an end to oppression, the trampling of our rights and our collective freedoms, it is necessary that our struggles take the path of a break with the patriarchal system, but also with capitalism and the racist system which do nothing but reinforce this tyranny.

We want to live without domination, to live free in a society free from exploitation, where social equality is ensured by the collective management of our needs and means of production, where the emancipation of each person is everyone's business. · Are both in his sexual orientation and in his life choices, where solidarity is the basis of society. This is called libertarian communism.

Let's reject their world, let's build our own. Long live the PMA for all, long live those who struggle, long live popular power !
