2020 has been a notable year for reproductive rights. The Supreme Court decided June Medical Services v. Russo, its first abortion-related case following the changeover from Justices Scalia and Kennedy to Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted access to abortion, sexual health, and reproductive health services.
In light of recent landmark events in the field of reproductive rights, the Bill of Health blog has created this symposium to present expert perspectives on these developments, both in the U.S. and internationally. In tandem with the symposium, the Petrie-Flom Center is hosting two complementary events, Reproductive Rights in 2020: June Medical Services v. Russo and COVID-19 and COVID-19 and the Politics of Reproductive Health: Global Perspectives. Learn more and register here.
