Reproductive Care in a Post-Roe America
On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Since then, 13 states have instituted abortion bans, and courts have blocked abortion bans in nine other states. This podcast, published on January 22, 2023 in recognition of the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, discusses the realities that both those seeking care and those providing it face in a post-Roe America.
“Without Roe, a key component of reproductive care has become illegal or restricted for more than 20 million people, throwing many into painful and life threatening situations. We are joined by Community Organizer at the Power Coalition for Equity and Justice, Kaitlyn Joshua, who experienced firsthand how new restrictions on abortion endanger the lives and well-being of pregnant people, and Dr. Jennifer Lincoln, an OB-GYN, reproductive health educator, author and Executive Director of Mayday Health, an organization focused on providing information on abortion access and options for people regardless of where they live.”
