Reproductive justice requires considering unequal access to reproductive, contraceptive, abortive and sterilization techniques or the placement and adoption of children as the result of systemic inequalities. The concept of reproductive justice thus makes it possible to understand why reflections and activism around the issues of adoption, parenting and children’s rights must be urgently reintegrated into class, feminist and anti-racist struggles. Based on excerpts from my latest documentary, A Story of One’s Own, which offers the portrait of five people adopted internationally and who are now adults, I intend to show the impact of the words and activism of people adopted in the politicization of issues related to contemporary parenting (multiracial, blended families, lgbtqia, etc.).
