Society has stigmatized many topics surrounding reproductive health, which stifles the opportunity for all, but especially individuals with disabilities, to talk openly about these issues. While reproductive freedom is a broad spectrum of choices, options, and access, choices are often limited, options are foretold, and access is blocked for people with disabilities. In this session, attendees will learn about issues and potential strategies to increase access to reproductive health.
