The Biden-Harris win is a victory for the reproductive health and rights of millions of vulnerable people around the world. This January, four years of Donald Trump’s constant attacks — including attempts to cut vital funding, a radically-expanded Global Gag Rule, and a denial of U.S. support to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) — will come to an end.
Letters: Government Involvement in Reproductive Health
Kate Brooks and Angela Howard·October 16, 2020
Keep government out of exam rooms During my first pregnancy, we were excited for the anatomy ultrasound, but it showed I was prematurely dilating and we were at risk of losing our baby. I was immediately scheduled to see a specialist. We met the perinatologist for the first time when I was 22 weeks, 1 day pregnant. Another ultrasound confirmed I was dilating and had to go to the hospital. My husband called my boss while I cried on the way to the hospital. I waited in a bed with my head tipped toward the floor until the doctor’s partner got done with surgery.
