state of Texas to support others wanting to end their pregnancies. The Supreme Court’s reversal of the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalised abortion in the United States has spotlighted global inequalities in access to the procedure, including for trans men, who face challenges from gendered abortion laws to economic marginalisation and discrimination.

For Perez, co-founder of the Texas-based West Fund – which has paused its operations following the June 24 ruling – the fight for trans rights and abortion access have much in common. “Trans justice and reproductive justice are linked together by the fact that what they are both fighting for at their core is bodily autonomy,” said 29-year-old Perez, who uses they/them pronouns and was not openly trans at the time of their abortion.
