American Society for Reproductive Medicine Recognizes Juneteenth as Holiday

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union General Gordon Granger read federal orders in Galveston, Texas, that all previously enslaved people in Texas were free. Although the Emancipation Proclamation had formally freed them almost two and a half years earlier, Texas was the most remote of the slave states, so enforcement of the proclamation was slow to take effect. In light of recent tragic events and the need to recognize the culture of systemic racism in our nation, ASRM offices will be closed tomorrow.

This was necessary as the extent of the COVID-19 pandemic, its viral transmission rate, its impact on reproductive well-being and pregnancy, and the ability of health systems to cope were yet unknown, at least in the U.S.
