Reproductive Rights And Womanhood In 2017

In this moment, women’s reproductive rights are in danger. It seems that after the elections, more states had passed limiting reproductive health bills. They are proposed by men, endorsed by men, signed by men. In mid-December, Gov. Kasich signed a bill that would prohibit abortion after twenty weeks, with no exceptions on rape or incest. In the same month, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott revealed plans to defund Planned Parenthood, going against federal measures. To the 27 million residents of Texas, this announcement means that cancer screenings, contraceptives, and treatment of STIs among many other services of Planned Parenthood may become off limits.
