New Zika Report: Women in Areas Most at Risk Have the Least Access to Reproductive Health
As Congress prepares to pass a much needed funding bill to fight the Zika outbreak, a new report by Population Institute, Double Trouble, shows that there is a dangerous overlap in the U.S. between states potentially affected by Zika and states ranking low on reproductive health and rights. In these states, women-particularly low-income women-may have more limited access to family planning clinics and abortion services than women in other parts of the country. Florida, Texas, and other states in the Gulf region, where Zika may pose the greatest threat, received poor or failing grades in the group’s scorecard in January.
