    New York (CNN Business)The overturning of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling by the US Supreme Court comes at an economic cost to the nation, economists have warned.Friday's decision to end the federal constitutional right to an abortion is widely thought to be more ideologically and politically motivated, rather than driven by an attempt to protect women from worse personal and financial outcomes. Those might include financial hardship, restricted ability to attain a higher education and move up the socio-economic ladder, as well as overall poorer health care for women reliant on clinics for preventative care. All of this would affect the state of the workforce, economic output and increase the need for government support, economists say."This decision will cause immediate economic pain in 26 states where abortion bans are most likely and where people already face lower wages, less worker power, and limited access to health care," said Heidi Shierholz, president of the Economic Policy Institute, in a statement released Friday. "The fall of Roe will be an additional economic barricade."The consequences are likely so extensive and far-reaching...
    (CBS4) – While Colorado’s top doctors may agree the spread of the omicron variant has reached its peak in many areas, emergency room physicians are asking the state to for immediate assistance as some front-line health care workers burn out amid numerous roadblocks. “We still have a couple more weeks at least of very high case rates and associated hospital utilization and you’ve got to remember, this is a time of year when you typically have people seeking health care at high rates even without the pandemic being here and so people still have heart attacks, strokes, high acuity medical conditions that need to be addressed and we want to continue to provide those services and we think there’s some potential ways in which we can work with the governors office, with the state health department to address some things that can be improved,” said Jamie Dhaliwal, an Emergency Physician and Medical Director at Saint Anthony North. Dhaliwal also sits on the board of the American College of Emergency Physicians, which sent a letter to the state last week saying,...

Working six days a weeks for months on end, Oakes has lived in a motel in a rural part of Arizona since July, assisting patients at a critical access hospital that treats people in dire need of care. Despite the endless hours she and her coworkers have put in, Covid-19 patients are still rising at a rapid pace, she said. The Navajo Nation extended its stay-at-home order by three weeks beginning Monday after president Jonathan Nez said in a statement that nearly all of the Navajo Area Indian Health Service's ICU beds were full and there's "little to no options" to move patients to nearby facilities, which are also at capacity. "We are so tired — emotionally, physically, spiritually," Oakes told...

    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – While there’s no official word on what prompted the state of Texas to move residents out of the Lake Worth Nursing Home, Texas Nurses Association CEO Cindy Zolnierek told CBS 11 it likely meant they faced a degree of danger had they stayed. “Generally states will intervene if there’s an immediate danger to the residents,” she explained. “So immediate risk of harm would require immediate intervention.” Nursing homes do have trained nurses on staff, but Zolnierek said often times the facilities are not medically focused like hospitals, and they’re not used to seeing acute conditions like COVID-19 that can spread so easily. “They may not have the supplies that they need, to the extent that they need, to protect themselves and their residents.” According to Texas Health and Human Services, across the state there are more than 7,022 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among nursing home residents. It’s a job that’s about taking care of others, but Zolnierek says there are situations where the risk to a nurse is just too much. “Nurses do have an ethical...
