Policing African-American Motherhood

The war on women now includes pregnant women, many of them being African-American women, says a new study. According to RH Reality Check, “African-American women in the study were more likely to be reported to the police by health care providers, arrested, and subject to felony charges” for a range of reasons including being drug tested without knowledge, not following doctor’s orders or being jailed to stop one from getting an abortion.
