Consequences of citizen policing on abortion law
Historically, individuals of color have been harassed through citizen policing,
surveillance, and brutality. According to experts, Texas’ new anti-abortion law, which empowers
individuals to sue anybody suspected of providing or helping in an abortion, would
disproportionately target people of color (Phillips, 2021). The act, which places a premium on
suing those who enable or abet abortions, applies to everyone from clinic staff to counselors to
those involved in transportation. Its implicit approval for espionage exacerbates the vulnerability
of people of color in a legal system that already punishes them unfairly. Black, Latina, and
Native American women endure disproportionate financial hardship, severely limiting their
options for legal abortion outside of Texas.
It may contribute to developing a culture of skepticism toward reproductive care. It
leaves those providing reproductive care uncertain about their ability to do what is best for a
patient without someone watching over their shoulder and frightened with a $10,000 reward.
