2.9 Reproductive Justice Post Roe

In 2021 state-based abortion restrictions swelled across the country and a powerful challenge to Roe v Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects a pregnant person’s right to choose to have an abortion, will be decided in the Supreme Court this year. All admist a backdrop of pervasive disparities in access to family planning, prenatal care, and maternal and child mortality across race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status. In this episode, we’re joined by Dr. Tiffany Green, Assistant Professor in the Departments of Population Health Sciences and Obstetrics & Gynecology at UW-Madison, and Dr Lina Maria Murillo, Assistant Professor in the Departments of Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies, History, and Latina/o/x Studies at the University of Iowa, to help us understand the history of reproductive rights and justice and what might lie ahead given the current policy context.
