The United States has for quite to long inflicted handicap on low-income women seeking to get an abortion. We have women that are already struggling financially, adding to that they have to purchase for safe legal care. The U.S. houses of representatives passed the Hyde Amendment since 1979 which bans federal funds for abortion. Indeed, Americans women that are insured through public health insurance programs such as Medicaid and Tricare (for military families) cannot access to abortion care. Therefore, medicaid would not offer abortion even when there is risk to the woman’s health and under doctor’s recommendation. This shows one of the many reason why women have hard time accessing reproductive health care service across the country.
