Recent abortion legal actions handed down in Texas and by the U.S. Supreme Court have raised questions for residents. Crystal S. Berry-Roberts, MD, MBA, FACOG, Obstetrics/Gynecology (Ob/Gyn) at ARC South Ob/Gyn provides practical, factual answers to many of these questions about the effect the rulings have on women's health care, birth control, and options currently available in Texas in this recent interview with the Austin American-Statesman.
Among the subjects Dr. Berry-Roberts covers are answers to questions about birth control such as
- If I don't want to become pregnant, what should I do?
- Is Plan B affected by the ruling?
And options for reproductive care:
- What happens if I do become pregnant?
- What about the abortion pill? Will that still be available?
- What about an ectopic pregnancy?
Answers to these and other questions are in the article.
