Spectrum News 1 interviewed Vanessa Barnabei, MD, professor of obstetrics and gynecology in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, in a report on the potential overturn of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court and the ramifications the decision could have on women’s reproductive health care. “It just removes a woman’s personal autonomy from their own health care decisions,” said Barnabei. “We’re already dealing with rising maternal mortality rates in the United States and I think there’s a lot of fear that this could add to that with women seeking unsafe abortions.”
