Skoog: No justice, no peace, more police?

With its history of brutal discrimination, not to mention the fact that Minneapolis cops haven’t been required to live in the precinct that they police since 1999, increasing law enforcement’s presence doesn’t seem like a move to strengthen community ties, but rather an effort to subjugate marginalized communities.

Skoog: What better way to perpetuate cycles of poverty than to control a population’s reproduction?

When discussing the proposed restrictions on abortion, “pro-choice” and “abortion rights” provide a limited framework for assessing the matter at large. Abortion accessibility is only a slice of the conversation surrounding reproductive health. Even the Roe v. Wade decision didn’t supply “choice” equally; under the current system of healthcare, “choice” is a reproductive luxury afforded to bodies in specific tax brackets.
