Women at risk: New threats to abortion access

June 27th @ 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm

Two years after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the constitutional right to abortion, 21 states have banned or severely restricted access to the procedure. Women and providers have come forward with harrowing stories about the impact of criminalizing aspects of reproductive care. And the political, legal, and personal turmoil is far from over. Our panel of experts will assess the post-Dobbs landscape and look ahead to looming battles over contraception, fertility treatments, and access to abortion pills.
