Elizabeth Warren Just Made Her Strongest Argument About Abortion Rights
Studies have found that women who can’t have access to safe, legal abortion care are
three times more likely to fall into poverty that those who do. Which is why, for Warren, the Hyde Amendment contributes to the growing inequality in the United States.
Research has shown, and Warren accurately pointed out, that even in the face of extreme abortion restrictions, women with enough resources can still get care. And that’s exactly what is happening: This year, anti-choice lawmakers at the state level have passed an unprecedented number of measures restricting access to abortion or outright banning the procedure. According to the
Guttmacher Institute, 378 abortion restrictions were introduced between January 1 and May 20 of this year.
