Reproductive Health and Equity 

Reproductive health care encompasses essential health care services for persons who may become pregnant, including safe and legal abortion care, contraception, and the use of assisted reproductive technologies. Access to services can be impacted by a number of different factors, including current litigation, prohibitive state laws, lack of resources or providers, domestic violence, and insufficient insurance coverage. Ensuring reproductive health care access is an important component of health justice, as access to care can profoundly impact physical and mental health at the individual level and across populations through intersections with social determinants of health. The resources included here specifically address legal and policy issues related to reproductive health and equity.
