Today we remember #RosieJimenez who died from an unsafe abortion at the age of 27. #BeBoldEndHyde
#RosieJimenez was a young, working class, Chicana student and single mother. #BeBoldEndHyde
In 1977, #RosieJimenez tried to have an abortion in her hometown of McAllen, TX. #BeBoldEndHyde
Her doctor refused to perform the procedure b/c the #HydeAmendment prevented Medicaid from covering the abortion.…
In need of care, Rosie went to Mexico where she obtained an unsafe, illegal abortion. She died from infection 7 days later. #BeBoldEndHyde
Rosie was the first victim of the Hyde Amendment. #BeBoldEndHyde
If #RosieJimenez was born in a different zip code, or a different economic class…
She might have had access to affordable abortion services in order to safely end her pregnancy. #BeBoldEndHyde
¡Ya basta! Enough is enough! The time has come for us to be bold & end the #HydeAmendment for good. #BeBoldEndHyde
United we can make #Hyde history. #BeBoldEndHyde
