Contraceptive Equity: Safety, Access, and Reproductive Justice

This session will center a discussion on contraceptive equity and reproductive freedom as it relates to the core of reproductive justice. In order to build a broad picture of contraceptive equity and bodily autonomy, panelists will address marketing, counseling, and prescription of contraceptives within a context of racism, sexism and cissexism, and reproductive coercion and oppression. In order to move towards freedom, we must understand the inequities prescribed by the targeted marketing and disproportionate prescription of LARCs (long-acting reversible contraceptives, such as IUDs and hormonal implants) and hormonal injections. Panelists will discuss access to resources (information, healthcare, and financial support) as necessary for reproductive choice for vulnerable populations, including cis-gender women of color, people living in poverty, and trans men & gender-nonconforming people.
