Dr. Sophia Yen is a big supporter of trusting woman to make their own health care decisions, and is launching a national online effort for Trust Women Week to drawn attention and support for reproductive justice, rights and health during the anniversary week of Roe v. Wade which made abortion legal.
There has been a long concerted effort to slowly chip away the rights of women’s reproductive rights since Roe v. Wade. Recently, Congress passed the “Let Women Die Bill” 251:170 HR358 where 250 members of Congress thought it okay to let a woman die in the ER rather than perform an abortion, tried to redefine rape as NOT rape if a woman was drunk, drugged or underage, and passed a law that would basically result in no private insurance coverage of abortion even if women paid for the insurance with their own funds (currently 85% of private
insurance covers abortion). Click here to join the virtual march Dr. Yen is organizing or click here to learn more about this effort.
