Reproductive Autonomy: It’s a We-Sponsibility

Mar 10, 2023

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Starting with the advent of “the Pill” more than 60 years ago, women have had greater control over their reproductive freedom than in any other time in history. With the recent US Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, however, their reproductive autonomy is slowly eroding and even their right to contraception is being threatened. Women have traditionally shouldered all the responsibility of family planning, mainly because they have had more contraceptive choices than men. As a result, men haven’t had as much of a stake in the game. Now is the time to rethink approaches for helping women retain their reproductive freedom while at the same time increasing men’s shared responsibility through the development of more male contraceptive options.
