Reproductive Rights in 2020: June Medical Services v. Russo and COVID-19

July 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

2020 has been a notable year for reproductive rights. On one hand, the Supreme Court has decided June Medical Services v. Russo, its first abortion-related case following the changeover from Justices Scalia and Kennedy to Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. On the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemic has also impacted access to abortion, sexual health, and reproductive health services. For example, hospitals have been struggling with how to keep patients and providers safe from COVID-19 while respecting the autonomy of laboring parents. Some policymakers have labeled abortion services non-essential while some providers work to use telehealth to deliver reproductive services. Join us for a discussion of the Supreme Court’s decision in June Medical and a dissection of the impact that COVID-19 has had on this field.
