‘shETHER’ rapper Remy Ma is starting a fund for women who are having trouble conceiving a child. Remy opened up to the world on ‘Love and Hip Hop New York’ of her and Papoose losing their child due to ectopic pregnancy.
In a video for Citizens of Woke Wonderland, rapper Remy Ma made an emotional and passionate announcement about women who may not be able to conceive.
Remy opened up about her own personal struggle with an ectopic pregnancy. Luckily, she had the finances for medical treatments, but being in that situation helped her recognize the larger issue. When she spoke publicly about her pregnancy, she realized how many women could have have children but are simply not financially stable enough to get the treatment or surgery that would allow them to.
“I’m trying to start my own fund right now,” she stated, “so that women who are like me, or have a similar situation to me, but they can’t afford it, could possibly get these procedures done and have children, because as a woman, that’s one of the things that you can do that no other being can do.”
She went on to call out pro-life politicians who want to eradicate women having the option to terminate a pregnancy because termination of a pregnancy can be paid for with heath insurance, but if you want to conceive they won’t take it. “If you’re pro-life, why would you not set up something so women who can’t conceive and women who want to be to be mothers and women who want to have children can do so?”
“When that is taken away from you it should not be because of money,” she said. “People put too much of a value on money as opposed to a value on life.”
