Remy Ma Uses Miscarriage Experience to Help the Less Fortunate
Remy has started a fund to help women with assistance by providing finances for them to conceive children.
She concocted the idea after her feature on Love and Hip Hop and the miscarriage she suffered on TV.
“First I was distraught, I was embarrassed, I was ashamed, I felt less than a woman and [the doctor] assured me that was no way to feel and that for a certain amount of thousands of dollars, it can be fixed. And because I have the finances, I never even thought twice about it, I was like, ‘Alright, how many thousand? Okay, no problem We’ll start doing it right now.’”
Remy went on tor explain how she realized something needed to be done to help the less fortunate.
“It wasn’t until I publicly spoke about it that I realized how many women are in the same predicament as me where they actually can have children, they just need an assist from medical procedures and they can’t because they are not financially stable enough to do it,”
Remy also went on to talk about the inconsistency in those who might be pro life but fail to help women who choose to have children.
“It’s just weird to me that if you want to terminate a pregnancy, you could use your health insurance; however, if you wanted to conceive, health insurance doesn’t cover that,” she added in relation to the healthcare industry, who she called to carpet. “So I’m looking at all of these politicians that claim that they’re pro-life and they want to eradicate women having the choice to terminate their pregnancies, but if you’re pro-life, why would you not set up something so women who can’t conceive and women who want to be mothers can do so.”
