Trump’s Travel Ban of Women of Child-Bearing Age Condemned By Health Experts

Director of Health Equity at the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) Dorianne Mason also accused the government of “doing nothing more than [penalizing] pregnancy and women.”

“It is an invasion of women’s privacy that creates potentially insurmountable barriers to life-saving care,” Mason said. “As with many of this Administration’s policies, its burden will fall most heavily on immigrant women of color; signaling yet again that if you are too brown, too black, or too poor, you are not welcome here.”

“Women and girls have the right to dignity, autonomy and lives without discrimination,” she said. “Pregnancy or potential pregnancy should not be weaponized to keep people out of this country. We condemn this repugnant regulation of women’s bodies.”
