Plan B and Beyond: Local Struggles for Reproductive Freedom

It’s not just about abortion anymore, and the Supreme Court isn’t the focal point. Obstacles to women’s reproductive health choices are surfacing in pharmacies, state legislatures, city councils and even medical schools.

On this edition, from Albuquerque to Portland to New York City, focusing locally is a strategy that’s gaining popularity amongst abortion opponents, as local institutions create restrictions that prevent women from exercising their choices, even with the law on their side.
