In a new abortion ruling that has sent shockwaves through America, the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to reverse the landmark Roe V. Wade court case that provided comprehensive protection to women’s reproductive rights.

The Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe V. Wade has birthed new concerns within the medical community about how the new aborting ruling might affect the health of Black women, who statistically are three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than their white counterparts.

In light of the Supreme Court’s decision to roll back women’s constitutional rights, American Black Journal host Stephen Henderson sits down with Dr. Kimberly Farrow, of Central City Integrated Health, for a conversation about the economic and health-related challenges Black women will not face under the new court ruling.

Plus, Dr. Farrow shares how overturning Roe V. Wade will affect Black women’s medical decisions and put them at greater risk than they already are.
