Protecting Access to Essential Reproductive Health Services Post-Dobbs

The Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision has dramatically shifted the reproductive health landscape in states, severely limiting access to abortion care and other reproductive health services for millions of women. As a result, health advocates need a renewed focus on access to abortion care and contraception in particular.

Health advocates have a range of policy options to choose from, including constitutional or statutory protections for abortion care, changes to the scope of practice and insurance laws to facilitate access to contraceptives, and relaxing telehealth restrictions so that women can access a full range of reproductive health services no matter where they live. To assist in this effort, Families USA has assembled a set of state policy recommendations and examples from the states that can be used as models.
