The overturning of Roe v Wade has resulted in the loss of reproductive rights for millions of women in the United States. It has also put these women at risk of severe mental and physical health consequences. When legal abortions are restricted, there is a rise in illegal abortion with the risk of hemorrhage, infection, infertility, and death. There are many more risks of carrying a pregnancy to term than health or psychological risks of a legal abortion. Women who have a miscarriage risk having to prove they did not abort. In cases of medical emergencies, doctors may be restricted from performing life-saving abortions for fear of penalties. Women or children who have been victims of rape or incest will have to either have an illegal abortion or carry an unwanted pregnancy to term. In states that allow an abortion in cases of severe risk to a mother’s health, panels of internists and psychiatrist may, again, be charged with deciding whether her risks are valid. Women’s physical and mental health will suffer.
