DSA 2023|The Health Equity Effects of Abortion Access Restriction

May 31, 2023

Current Situation
There are current significant health inequities within women's health care including chronic health condition care,
contraception uptake, abortion care utilization, and pregnancy related morbidity and mortality. Additionally, there is
limited understanding among providers both in and out of women's health regarding the current legal landscape
around abortion care. Additionally, there is limited understanding of the implications of abortion access restrictions on
Women's Health Inequities.

Desired Practice
The aim of this presentation is to educate physicians and health care providers on current women's health inequities,
and the implications of restrictive legislation around abortion care on these inequities. The hope is to empower
physicians to provide equitable health care to all women, and find small ways to address these health disparities in
their own practice.

Target Audience

Physicians: especially OBGYN physicians, and any physicians who regularly provide care to reproductive age women
(Internal Medicine, Family medicine, Pediatricians, Psychiatrists)

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Have an improved understanding of current legislation around abortion
  • They will also understand current health inequities within women's health care, and the implications of abortion
    access restriction on these inequities
