Blackstone cited in Refinery 29 story about women’s health, child-free choices

University of Maine Professor of Sociology Amy Blackstone was quoted in a Refinery 29 story about doctors’ tendencies to prioritize fertility over physical and mental health. “Not providing the treatment that women seek because you believe you know better than them what is best for them not only infantilizes women but is just one more way that women are denied their right to choose for themselves whether, when or how many children they will have,” said Blackstone.
