Abstract The paper on African American women and the history of their reproductive choice delves in to the various aspects that these women suffer with regard to pregnancy. They are not treated with the same equality as the American women. The freedom to do as per their liking with their bodies is not granted which makes them suffer at the hands of callous doctors. This practice has to be stopped and though various women’s organizations and activists are at it, there has not been much of a success. Therefore, more work is required to stop these unhealthy practices and ensure that the African American women are given the freedom which they are due. The question ‘Was reproductive freedom achieved and in what way was it helpful for the African American women?’ is the question which is answered in the paper. The references ‘Reproductive Freedoms and African American Women and Women of color’ and ‘the reproductive rights movement ‘ help in discussing this topic.
