Joelle Abramowitz discusses the impact of the reversal of Roe v. Wade
The reversal of Roe v. Wade means the United States has a patchwork of legal access to abortion. Abortion remains legal in Michigan, but that could change if a 1931 law banning the procedure goes into effect. The impact of this law will land hardest on women earning below the federal poverty line. Joelle Abramowitz says, “If it means traveling out of state to get an abortion, that is costly. It’s costly to pay for the abortion procedure itself, but it’s also costly to take time off of work, to travel, to potentially get child care.”
