Understanding the Intersection of Reproductive Rights and Disability Rights: Unpacking the Topics

November 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Navigation

Changes in how laws and governments have authority and power over bodily autonomy were brought to the forefront with the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down Roe v. Wade. The ripples of this decision will continue to be felt far and wide. What will the impact be on disabled people, whose bodies, privacy, and autonomy have been subject to scrutiny for generations?

Following the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which overturned Roe v. Wade, discussions about government control of healthcare access and the rights of disabled people should be front and center.
