“‘It’s Way Out Of My League’: Low-Income Women’s Experiences of Medicalized Infertility.” (2009)

This article speaks to how women of lower SES (social economic status) have less access to fertility treatment. The author then goes on to say that this is partly because of the notion that women of color are always fertile and always making more babies. Women of color of lower SES are left out of the conversation. Women of color are more likely to have access to sterilization than fertility treatments. Middle class women have more access to fertility treatments.

This is a good article for medical professionals, clinics, nurses, and abortion clinics.
