Overturning Roe v. Wade will harm people of color and burden Minnesota’s health care system, says UM researcher.

Asha Hassan, a reproductive health researcher at the University of Minnesota, says abortion bans disproportionately affect people of color. If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, she says, more Black women will die during pregnancy and Minnesota will see a 371 percent increase in out-of-state patients seeking abortions.
