Next: The Future of Global Reproductive Healthcare in a Post Roe v. Wade Era
The overturning of Roe v Wade has done more than end the constitutionally protected right to abortion in the United States after nearly 50 years: it has undermined individual rights and autonomy, emboldened an already organized and well-resourced opposition, and threatens access to the full scope of sexual and reproductive healthcare both at home and abroad.
Healthcare professionals across the global sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice space are left to grapple with how to ensure access to essential care to which all people have a right. They must also gauge the most appropriate and effective ways to communicate about this care in environments that no longer assure universal reproductive rights and bodily autonomy.
In this panel, we’ll hear from leaders across the advocacy, industry and public health fields to discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead for reproductive healthcare access in the U.S. and globally.
