Panel Discussion
This groundbreaking series of high quality research projects combine to tell a story about what happens when women are denied abortion care. The UCSF Bixby Center's ANSIRH Project has tackled a difficult, relatively unexplored topic with scientific credibility and skill, and the collective message that emerges is a story that all public health advocates need to tell.
Session Objectives: Participants in the Turn-Away Studies panel will be able to explain and discuss the impact on women of being denied abortion care in the US.
