April 20: Family Planning

Reproductive rights emerged as a focal point of the liberation movement in the 1970s. New methods of birth control enabled women, and to some extent men, to control when to have children. The passage or Roe v. Wade gave women a legal right to terminate unwanted pregnancies. These changes have been controversial, leading at times to violent attacks against women and health care practitioners. Recent efforts in Congress seek to reverse womens reproductive rights and impose a variety of new restrictions on access to family planning services.

Join us on Common Health on Wednesday, April 20 as we look at the history and future of family planning in Maine.

We invite your calls and email with questions and comments.
