June 24, 2022, reproductive health care in the United States was dealt a major blow when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade decision and removed federal protection for abortion. Now states have the power to ban abortion outright, which will increase inequities that already plague the health care system and our society. Although abortion restrictions will negatively affect the health and well-being of all pregnant people and their families, those most affected by this changing landscape will include low-income women and members of marginalized racial and ethnic groups. Dobbs will thus perpetuate and exacerbate health inequity, which has a long history in the United States.
