Minority women are most affected if abortion is banned or limited

If you are Black or Hispanic in a state that already limits access to abortions, you are far more likely than a white woman to have one

By Emily Wagster Pettus and Leah Willingham, Associated Press February 1, 2022

In Texas, they’re 59% of the population and 74% of those receiving abortions. The numbers in Alabama are 35% and 70%. In Louisiana, minorities represent 42% of the population, according to the state Health Department, and about 72% of those receiving abortions.

“Abortion restrictions are racist,” said Cathy Torres, a 25-year-old organizing manager with Frontera Fund, a Texas organization that helps women pay for abortions. “They directly impact people of color, Black, brown, Indigenous people … people who are trying to make ends meet.”

Schools often have ineffective or inadequate sex education.

If abortions are outlawed, those same women — often poor — will likely have the hardest time traveling to distant parts of the country to terminate pregnancies or raising children they might struggle to afford, said Roberts, who is Black.


The Turnaway Study conducted at the University of California, San Francisco, shows that women experience harm from being denied a wanted abortion.* These findings have far-reaching implications for lawmakers, judges, health agencies, and others as they consider policies that restrict abortion access.

Denying a woman an abortion creates economic hardship and insecurity which lasts for years.

• Women who were turned away and went on to give birth experienced an increase in household poverty lasting at least four years relative to those who received an abortion.
• Years after an abortion denial, women were more likely to not have enough money to cover basic living expenses like food, housing, and transportation.
• Being denied an abortion lowered a woman’s credit score, increased a woman’s amount of debt, and increased the number of her negative public financial records, such as bankruptcies and evictions.

Women turned away from getting an abortion are more likely to stay in contact with a violent partner. They are also more likely to raise the resulting child alone.

Physical violence from the man involved in the pregnancy decreased for women who received abortions but not for the women who were denied abortions and gave birth.
• By five years, women denied abortions were more likely to be raising children alone – without family members or male partners – compared to women who received an abortion.

The financial well-being and development of children is negatively impacted when their mothers are denied abortion.

• The children women already have when they seek abortions show worse child development when their mother is denied an abortion compared to the children of women who receive one.
• Children born due to abortion denial are more likely to live below the federal poverty level than children born from a subsequent pregnancy to women who received the abortion.
• Carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term is associated with poorer maternal bonding, such as feeling trapped or resenting the baby, with the child born after abortion denial, compared to the next child born to a woman who received an abortion.

Giving birth is connected to more serious health problems than having an abortion.

• Women who were denied an abortion and gave birth reported more life-threatening complications like eclampsia and postpartum hemorrhage than those who received wanted abortions.
• Women who were denied an abortion and gave birth instead reported more chronic headaches or migraines, joint pain, and gestational hypertension than those who had an abortion.
• The higher risks of childbirth were tragically demonstrated by two women who were denied an abortion and died following delivery. No women died from an abortion.

Women who receive a wanted abortion are more financially stable, set more ambitious goals, raise children under more stable conditions, and are more likely to have a wanted child later.

Don’t think we Supreme Court Justices care only about punishing women, especially poor women or women of color.

We also plan to void all laws that aid immigrants and immigrants’ children,  birthright children, gays, Muslims, the elderly, and poor people.

We’re not going to feed them, educate them, house them, clothe them or help them to vote. We want them to be an impoverished, uneducated helpless underclass whom we can blame for crime and then imprison or enslave, like the good old days.

We’re pro-life except for guns and children already born.

And don’t kid yourself about us being independent arbiters. We’re as political as Chicago aldermen, and just as honest. (Hey, why would being married to a crazy white supremacist bar me from judging crazy white supremacists?)

In short, we will twist the words of the Constitution, while claiming we are “strict constructionists” (except for the 2nd Amendment, when we choose to ignore the first thirteen words).

We’ll also ignore changing times, so we can direct America into the most bigoted, narrow-minded, short-sighted, archaic, unAmerican, mean-spirited avenues available to us, so long as they don’t hurt the rich, white, and powerful.

We like the rich, white, and powerful, and the rich, white, and powerful like us (except for Justice Thomas who despises blacks even more than he despises whites).

We have lifetime appointments, so we can do anything we want. We love every detail of the law. Just don’t expect us to give a damn about you people, too.

The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics. Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps: Ten Steps To Prosperity:

  1. Eliminate FICA
  2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone
  3. Social Security for all
  4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
  5. Salary for attending school
  6. Eliminate federal taxes on business
  7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 
  8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.
  9. Federal ownership of all banks
  10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.

  1. US ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield says that a new Taliban decree ordering Afghan women to cover their faces is “unconscionable” in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. Women who do not obey, and those who aid them, may be fired from their jobs and jailed.
    See: https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/news/very-chilling-message-un-ambassador-reacts-to-new-taliban-edict/vi-AAX31c6?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=9249da49235049178653b77fa0505979

    US Supreme Court issues decree allowing states to force pregnant women to take unwanted and unaffordable women to full term. Women who do not obey, and those who aid them, may be fired, fined and/or jailed.


  2. This is not logical from a racist point of view. If racist legislators know that black women are getting more abortions than white women, why would they want to stop it, since they want fewer black babies, not more, right? Or, maybe they think black women will flee their restrictive states and become liberal states’ problems? I just can’t believe the racist legislators are trying to save disproportionate numbers of black babies.


      1. I wonder if legislators are as knowledgeable as the article says: do they really understand that 60%-80% of abortions in their mostly southern states are by black women or do they picture a young, white middle class female who has an abortion because a baby would be inconvenient for her career or lifestyle? It’s no secret they want new moms to be married, and probably to stop working too. But if they really understood that more black babies would be born, would they still be anti-choice?
        An ethical dilemma: Would you exploit someone’s racist attitudes to persuade them to support a socially progressive cause like abortion?


  3. Forget logic. This is the party of Donald Trump, a proven psychopath (See: https://mythfighter.com/2019/07/28/a-psychopath-slipped-into-the-white-house/)

    This is the party of hatred for all those who are not white supremacist Christian extremists.

    This is the “patriotic” party that first attempted a coup, and then, and only a day later, denied a coup had even been attempted, and began again fawning over Trump (after saying he was responsible.)

    This party has so little morality, it continues to worship a man who has paid $30 million in fines for fraud, who through COVID denial, caused the deaths of many thousands of Americans, who cheated on three wives, who employed and cheated illegal aliens, and who attempted to blackmail the president of Ukraine. (But he loves Vladimir Putin and Kim.)

    This party fosters hatred of blacks, browns, yellows, gays, immigrants, Muslims, women, and the poor.

    This party rejects paying for Medicare for all, Obamacare, aid to college students, poverty aid, and expansion of Social Security, but has plenty of money to pay for a border wall, expanded military, and jailing anyone who helps a frightened and impoverished woman avoid bringing an unaffordable, unwanted child into the world.

    This party has no room for immigrants but plenty of room for fetuses. (until they are born, after which the party has no use for them.)

    In my 87 years, I never have seen a party so devoid of truth, honor, or compassion for the underdog, and yet, despite all, this party will receive enough votes to dominate the next Congress. That is how low America has sunk.

    You want logic, but there is no logic. There only is hatred. It will take generations to undo the harm the psychopath has done to a once admired nation.


  4. This may be naive, but I think the outrage shown by Republican leadership after 1/6 was necessary if not sincere. But they couldn’t maintain it. Trump is always breathing down their necks. They had to reverse course and fall back into his arms. Actually it’s not Trump as much as it is Trump’s supporters; the millions of fools who can vote you out of your high status job if you don’t lie down. So you talk like a tough guy one day before the public. The next day you’re sorry, then grovel and lick the boots of the world’s biggest deceiver. I just can’t imagine how a majority will vote this clown back in, unless the economy continues south without recovery.


    1. Many years ago, the GOP had my vote. I liked Ike. But beginning with Newt Gingrich and later the Tea Party, the Republicans drifted further from any compassion for the people to the mean-spirited, hard-edged, QAnon party of white supremacists and hatred for non-white, non-fundamental, non-Christians it has become.

      Today, I cannot think of any outrage, any crime Donald Trump could commit that would turn his army of zombies away from him.

      Once, attacking Congress and attempting to overthrow the government would warrant a death sentence (see: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg). Today, it has made Trump even more popular with his zombies.

      Imagine a Supreme Court Justice, whose wife is a stark-raving election-denying loony. Imagine a man who claims he will not recuse himself from cases that involve other stark-raving election-denying loonies because “we never discuss cases.” And this is the right-wing guy who got his job by being black and denying he attacked a credible woman victim.

      Imagine a Senate majority leader who refuses to allow any review of a Democrat-nominated, highly-regarded Supreme Court Justice because nine months is “too close to an election.” Later, he allowed a rush, rush vote for an incompetent, GOP-nominated Justice, who is a guaranteed, mindless vote for all things Trump.

      And that leader is revered for pulling off the stunt.

      While “honest politician” is an oxymoron, there are degrees. The Dems are bad because they are incompetent, but at least they want to help the people who need help. The Republicans are evil because they don’t give a damn for anyone and have no ideas; they only desire power.

      Unfortunately, we now have uber-nuts like Ron DeSantis succeeding by out-Trumping Trump. There is no law too outrageous, too anti-sense for our right-wing. I expect us to return to anti-gay, anti-witch, anti-Jew, pro-slavery times.

      Look around you. When you see every unlicensed fool casually carrying a loaded, high-capacity rifle, you’ll understand that the America of love for the less fortunate is gone.

      After the coming mid-term elections, we officially will be the nation of hatred.
