How Does the Overturning of Roe v. Wade Affect Women’s Rights?

Have women’s rights been affected by the overturning of Roe v. Wade? Misformation online and in the media suggests this is the case. However, women can still access the medical care they need; this has not changed.

Reviewing the facts is essential, especially if you have an unexpected pregnancy.

Can I Access Medical Care in Texas?

Abortion is banned in Texas, except if the mother’s life or health is in danger. If you have a health condition like cancer and are pregnant, know you can receive the medical care you need. No one will deny you treatment.

Some media outlets have argued that women cannot have life-saving medical assistance for conditions like ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. This is untrue; both conditions do not require an abortion procedure to be successfully treated.

If you do not receive an obstetric ultrasound before having an abortion procedure, you may not know whether you have had a miscarriage. Undergoing an unnecessary procedure can pose serious health risks.

What Should I Do if I Learn I’m Pregnant?

An unexpected pregnancy can be frightening, especially if you lack support and information. First, confirm your pregnancy with free testing at Cleburne Pregnancy Center. Next, having an obstetric ultrasound is essential. This scan confirms your pregnancy’s viability, gestational age, and location—crucial information when determining your options.

We also offer STI testing for women, which is a vital step. STIs can be passed from mother to baby during pregnancy and childbirth, and untreated STIs can cause significant health complications. You deserve to prioritize your health and get tested regularly. This service is used to detect chlamydia and gonorrhea.

Finally, an options consultation will provide the necessary information after receiving the necessary medical services. Get all your options, including abortion, adoption, and parenting. Learn about the risks and side effects of abortion and the resources available for parenting and adoption in a compassionate, judgment-free environment.
