September Event

In our own hands: How self managed abortion can — and can’t — promote reproductive autonomy in a post-Roe world

Monday, September 12 (5-7 PM), in-person only, FXB G-13

with Dr. Liz Janiak, ScD & Brianna Keefe-Oates, MPH, Doctoral Candidate

Join us as we contend with the seismic shifts in reproductive rights with the overturning of Roe V Wade. Self-managed abortion (SMA) is one strategy to promote reproductive autonomy in a post-Roe context. We will discuss what SMA is, how it has worked in other legally restricted environments, and what the evidence shows regarding safety, quality, and acceptability of different models.

Please register here.
