To the editor:
My grandmother died in rural Iowa after a miscarriage. Many of my family and friends have had miscarriages that they were devastated over, but they lived because of modern medicine.
With three adolescent granddaughters, now I am worried whether a doctor will give them medical care if they have a miscarriage.
Because a miscarriage has to do with pregnancy, will they have to go court to prove it was not an abortion?
Will they have to record their menstruation period with a civil servant that is open to public viewing?
Will they be allowed contraceptives to prevent pregnancy?
Will they be stopped from traveling out of state just because they are of child-bearing age and might be pregnant?
The biggest question is how will the U.S. Supreme Court ruling against Roe v. Wade be enforced?
