There’s good reason for women, parents, and people who menstruate or give birth to be feeling agitated right now.

The Supreme Court today announced their decision to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, ending the constitutional right to abortion. The contentious ruling was widely expected after a draft of the opinion was leaked in May. 

The landmark decision comes at a time when many parents are struggling to feed their babies because of an ongoing baby formula shortage. And earlier this month, we started seeing reports of tampon shortages. 

These issues have understandably caused feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, anger, and stress for people throughout the country, says Allison Young, MD, an adjunct professor of psychiatry at the New York University Grossman School of Medicine in New York City and a psychiatry medical reviewer for Everyday Health.
