Co-director of Northeastern’s Center for Health Policy and Law and friend of the WGSS program Wendy Parmet and others share their research on the significance of birth control and its impact on the lives of those who use it in a piece in the New Yorker. The article explores the positive influence of its accessibility and the potential consequences of Roe’s overturning in relation to birth control access.

If the Court were to restrict access to contraception as well, the results could be financially devastating, potentially leading to a drastic reimagining of women’s role in our economy and society at large.
