What Happened to ”My Body, My Choice”?

Black, female DC police officers say they were given ultimatum: Have an abortion or be fired | TheHill

D.C.'s assistant police chief this week claimed that as an 18-year-old cadet she was told to get an abortion or she would be fired, according to reports from NBC News.

Chanel Dickerson is one of 10 women who are either current or former Black, female D.C. police officers filing a class-action lawsuit against the city's Metropolitan Police Department with claims that they were discriminated against based on their sex and race.

“My choice to have a baby was personal and it should’ve been mine alone and not for an employer ultimatum,” Dickerson had said during a community meeting, as reported by NBC.

There’s really only one word for this.
