Overturning Roe Will Put U.S. Even Further Behind on Women’s Rights

“It’s disheartening to hear that the U.S. wants to advocate or comment about other countries and how they treat women, but yet here we are trying to control a person’s decision about their own reproductive care and access,” says NOW’s Nunes. “We have to think deeper about how we’re looking as a country.”

What will Democrats do in a post-Roe reality?

Reversing Roe would cause an access gap between those who have the means and resources to travel for an abortion and those who don’t said, Nunes.
“Those with money are still going to have access to abortion,” she said. “Certain communities are going to be the ones that are most affected by this access: women of color, women with disabilities, LGBTQIA members, women in poverty. We’re going to go back to a time where people have to seek unsafe underground abortion practices since they can’t afford to travel to states.”
