Convened by the University of Pennsylvania’s Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics, a virtual seminar of reproductive health experts explores the health and health equity implications of the Roe v. Wade ruling.

The end of Roe v. Wade has had profound health, political, social, and economic implications nationwide. Penn LDI convened a panel of experts including Aletha Akers, MD, MPH, Vice President for Research at the Guttmacher Institute; Raegan McDonald-Mosley, MD, MPH, CEO of Power to Decide; and Heather Shumaker, JD, Director of State Abortion Access at the National Women’s Law Center. In a discussion moderated by Courtney Schreiber, MD, MPH, LDI Senior Fellow and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Perelman School of Medicine, the panelists explored the current state of abortion bans across the nation, consequences for abortion access and reproductive health care as a whole, and potential next steps in research, policy, and advocacy.
