Mainstream media still needs to cover stories about how restrictive legislation on reproductive rights impacts minorities in different ways. One of the main criticisms is that these issues are covered from the political level perspective, instead of focusing on which are the real implications of the legislation in the state of Mississippi, or in Florida, or in the state of Arizona. For instance, the decision made up by one Governor to restrict access to contraception can impact Latinas differently.
