On June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe. v. Wade, which for nearly 50 years had protected a pregnant person’s legal ability to have an abortion. In response, OHSU has reaffirmed its commitment to providing comprehensive complex family planning care and training the next generation of reproductive health providers. The decision also influenced donors to respond with their support of reproductive health equity.
One year after the Supreme Court ruling, reproductive health providers at OHSU reflect on how the decision has impacted their work and discuss how OHSU has maintained its unwavering support toward providing the full continuum of sexual and reproductive health care.
