Equal Access: Women of Color & Low-Income Women
While barriers to reproductive freedom affect all women, women of color and low-income women face unique obstacles that jeopardize their reproductive rights and health. As a result, the reproductive health needs of many low-income women and women of color are going unmet in the United States.
A complex array of factors, ranging from egregious historical discrimination to socioeconomic constraints, impairs minority and low-income women’s access to the full range of reproductive health care options. We must overcome these obstacles to guarantee every woman the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices.
