Reversal of Roe v. Wade: Impact on Women Entrepreneurs

SBA Isabella Casillas Guzman said that last week’s Supreme Court ruling overturning the 1973 Roe v Wade decision would “jeopardize the civil liberties of millions of women.”

One of the greatest impacts will be on women entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurs and other self-employed individuals attain health insurance through Healthcare.gov and other insurance companies. Some insurance companies cover “reproductive services” but may not cover the costs of an abortion. According to statistics from April 2022, the average cost nationally for an abortion in the first trimester is $600 and in the second trimester, $900. 

Emotions and opinions are strong, with little common ground, as evidenced in Michigan.
