'I'm Genuinely Afraid to Have Sex': Where Roe v. Wade Meets Anxiety

In 2016 when a new president was elected, I cried for multiple reasons, partially because I was fearful of the day Roe v. Wade would be challenged and taken away from us.

Now that Roe v. Wade could potentially be recalled, that safeguard may disappear.
