Fourteen out of the twenty three states with anti-abortion laws on the books provide the least amount of resources to support pregnant women.
Mississippi, who brought this case to the supreme court, ranks the lowest of all states in benefits,has the lowest birth rate, and highest child poverty.
None offer paid maternity leave.
Eight of these states refused Medicaid expansion.
The vast desert of what is available to these women and children…
The majority of those who have abortion are from the lower economic class.
Of the developed countries of the world the US is one of the few without paid maternity leave. There is nothing for post partum mental health care and relatively the same for child care.
The child care credit passed during the pandemic has expired. The Build Back Better Law which included these issues were defeated due to Manchin and Sinema.
If the current supreme court decision passes will Mississippi put their $$ where there mouth is?
I think we all know the answer to that one.
