Reproductive Justice Hearing: Religion, Conscience Objections, & Hospital Mergers

Prof. Michele Goodwin, Director of the Center for Biotechnology and Global Health Policy at UCI Law, organized “Locked Out and Silenced: A Call To Reclaim Women's Reproductive and Healthcare Rights,” a hearing at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to shine a bright light on the status of women’s reproductive and health care access. Expert panels covered issues such as violations of women’s reproductive privacy, women's mass incarceration (and their health behind bars), access to reproductive health services, domestic violence, online sexual harassment, and the religious objections to medical services.
