Sec. Yellen: ‘The Inability to Access Abortion Would Have a Profound Impact on Their Personal and Economic Lives’

‘There have been studies that show that denying women access to abortion increases their odds of living in poverty’

EXCERPT:

YELLEN: “I believe that decades of research have established that there’s a causal link between access to abortion and the quality of women’s lives. It affects their education, their earnings, their careers, and the subsequent life outcomes of their children, and I believe that overturning Roe would prevent large numbers of women from managing their reproductive lives, particularly many low income and financially vulnerable individuals. The inability to access abortion would have a profound impact on their personal and economic lives.”
