SRHR 3: Abortion Services and Access in a post-Roe World
October 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
The USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health invites you to join us for “Abortion Services and Access in a post-Roe World: What Does this Mean for Los Angeles and for the United States?” on Tuesday, Oct. 4, noon–1 p.m. PDT.
This one-hour virtual panel brings together clinicians, civil servants, non-governmental organizations, and activists focusing on the provision of abortion services in Los Angeles and across the United States, including states with laws that severely restrict access such as Indiana and Texas. The discussion will consider the realities of abortion provision in a post-Roe world, including the options available to individuals who are seeking medical or in-clinic abortion services, with attention to the legality of abortion provision in different states and across state lines. Panelists will also consider the implications of these varied restrictions for clinicians and individuals who provide abortion services. With medical evidence as its starting point, this panel contributes to a broader understanding of the changing landscape of inequalities in health and health outcomes within and between cities and states in the United States brought about by the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
