Yahoo Life: How Roe being overturned has put women’s lives at risk
June 23. 2023
The end of reproductive rights that had been granted by Roe v. Wade “definitely worsened U.S. maternal mortality rates,” Noreen Farrell, executive director of Equal Rights Advocates, tells Yahoo Life. “It doesn’t just impact access to abortion — these are resulting in clinics being shut down altogether. People who can become pregnant aren’t even able to access reproductive information or birth control.”
Farrell says it’s crucial for people to get out and vote in favor of reproductive rights. “The lives of millions are at risk if we don’t come together and fight for reproductive care and abortion access,” she says.
