Reproductive Health Care, Litigation, Privacy and Public Health


December 12, 2023 | 1 – 2:30 p.m. ET

The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization eviscerated 50 years of precedent and constitutional rights to abortion. States have since adopted widely divergent reproductive health care access policies, illustrating serious legal questions remaining post-Roe. Attend this webinar for the latest information on litigation in state courts regarding reproductive health care access through state constitutions and statutes; an update on how states are protecting reproductive health records through data privacy laws; and how local health departments are serving their communities in the post-Roe landscape.


By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Recognize the role state courts and state constitutions and statutes play in protecting access to reproductive health care, particularly abortion care.
  • Understand state efforts to bolster privacy of reproductive health records and ensure they are not used against patients and providers.
  • Identify how different local health departments are operationalizing ever-changing state laws regarding sexual and reproductive health to best serve their communities.
