What Donald Trumps win could mean for women with Zika

The Zika virus was already a threat to women before the election. But now that Americans have elected a man who campaigned on the promise of overturning Roe v. Wade, that threat could get even worse.

.

For the past several months, women in certain parts of the country, especially South Florida, have had to reckon with the effects of the Zika crisis on their fertility and reproductive rights. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than one thousand pregnant women in the United States have shown signs of infection so far.

.

Its been excruciating to think about the choices these women and their families have been forced to face as theyve grappled with the notion of carrying a fetus that might be born with lifelong and debilitating birth defects.

.

In fact, we didnt even get a full view of these defects until days before the election. On November 3rd, the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics released a report identifying a pattern of birth defects appearing in children born to mothers infected with the Zika virus during pregnancy. This grouping is now officially called congenital Zika syndrome. It includes five types of defects seen all at once among babies born to Zika-infected women: severe microcephaly (abnormally small head size) with a party collapsed skull; decreased brain tissue with a specific pattern of calcium deposits indicating brain damage; damage to the back of the eye with a specific pattern of scarring and increased pigment; joints with a limited range of motion, such as clubfoot; and too much muscle tone, restricting movement soon after birth.

.

But five days after that report came out, former reality television personality Donald Trump and former Indiana governor Mike Pence, who has said that he wants to see Roe v. Wade sent to the ash heap of history, won the presidential election. And just like that, the circumstances around womens reproductive rights got even more severeespecially in the wake of Zika.

.

Perhaps the most painful aspect of what pregnant women with Zika face boils down to timing. According to guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control, microcephaly can typically be detected on an ultrasound between 18 to 20 weeks of gestation at the earliest, but it more often becomes apparent on an ultrasound during the late second and early third trimester, somewhere between 24 to 28 weeks gestation. By that point, it
may be too late to make a decision. According to the Guttmacher Institute, a sexual and reproductive health research and policy organization, 14 states already ban abortions after 20 weeks except in cases of life or health endangerment to the woman. Another eight states ban abortion at 24 weeks, another two states at the start of the third trimester, and another 19 at the point of viability outside womb. Although there is no definitive gestational age that guarantees fetal viability, roughly 95% of babies born before 23 weeks gestation do not survive. Current data shows that between 67% and 76% of babies born at 25 weeks gestation survive until discharge from the hospital.

.

If he keeps his campaign promises, President-elect Trump will make it significantly more challenging for women at this stage of pregnancy to access a full range of reproductive options. He has been vocal about his intent to support a federal ban on so-called partial birth abortion, a term used by anti-choice advocates to describe the medical procedure of dilation and extraction commonly used for late-term abortion.
