Women Get Hit With Delay In Reproductive Services Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

The global coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. and infected at least 73,000 and killed more than 1,000.

According to Reuters, it didn’t just hurt the economy but has hit women’s reproductive needs.

Some women must face childbirth alone without their partners or family, with hospitals restricting visitors.

Women in Texas seeking abortions had appointments cancelled after providers were threatened with prosecution for conducting non-essential medical services.

Those in the process of fertility treatments face delays or cancelled embryo transfers as well.
