Earlier this year, Remy Ma revealed she suffered a miscarriage due to an ectopic pregnancy.
Speaking to fans via Instagram, she explained its impact, saying:
“[It] made me realize how many women like myself experience the same thing….So I’m here to tell anyone going thru a similar situation that it is not over and God has the last say so.”
Now, in an interview with ESSENCE, the rapper has announced her plans to launch a fund for women who also have trouble conceiving but can’t afford necessary reparative treatment. Remy said:
“I’m trying to start my own fund right now so that women who are like me, or have similar situations to me, but they can’t afford it, they 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 explained that she was inspired to do so after the response she received from other women following going public with the news, saying:
“For a certain amount of thousands of dollars, [my pregnancy] could 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 now.’ But it wasn’t until that 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.”
She also called out hypocritical politicians and health insurance laws, saying:
“It was just weird to me that if you wanted to terminate a pregnancy, you could use your health insurance. However, if you wanted to conceive, health insurance didn’t cover that. So, I’m looking at all these politicians that claim 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 conceive and women who want to be mothers and women who want to have children, can do so?”
Finally, she concluded, “When [motherhood is] taken away from you, I don’t feel like it should be taken away from you because of money. People put too much of a value on money, as opposed to a value on life.”
