Hospitals largely keep quiet on maternal care since Dobbs, STAT survey finds

The Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has transformed not just abortion access but maternal health care across the United States, causing physicians in states with restrictive laws to shift treatment of conditions including ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. The full scale of the impact, though, has been obscured in a polarized political climate where physicians are often afraid to speak out, or are blocked by their hospitals from talking about their experiences post-Dobbs.

Since Dobbs, women’s dignity and human rights have been attacked in Ohio and across the country

Can you imagine American men allowing a legislature full of women or a majority female court to enact laws and decrees about their bodies? Can you imagine them tolerating female politicians imposing extreme government overreach on their private medical care decisions? Would American men put up with draconian restrictions on their personal liberties or accede to second class status in a controlling matriarchy?    Of course not.

COMMENTARY — Leave the practice of medicine to physicians, not politicians

Just four short years ago, during a moment where the whole world stopped, health care providers in New Hampshire, and around the nation, were revered as “health care heroes.” “Heroes” that our loved ones, neighbors, complete strangers, as well as our elected officials relied on and trusted, not only to provide comprehensive medical care during a global pandemic and a time of extraordinary uncertainty, but trusted they’d know what’s best for public health and our communities. Today, however, those same health care “heroes” who were trusted to compassionately care for all patients are suddenly under attack.

Indiana Appeals Court Upholds Injunction of Abortion Law for Religious Objectors

An Indiana appeals court upheld April 4 a preliminary injunction blocking the state’s enforcement of its near-total abortion ban against plaintiffs who say the law violates their rights under Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). The appeals court concluded that the abortion ban likely amounted to a substantial burden on the plaintiffs’—five anonymous women and Hoosier Jews for Choice—exercise of religion. In addition, the state failed to show a compelling interest in prohibiting religiously motivated health care decision or that it employed the least restrictive alternative given other existing exemptions from the law in the case of rape or incest, when the…

Challenging harmful masculinities and engaging men and boys in sexual and reproductive health

More research is needed to address the impact of harmful masculinities on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), according to a new priority research agenda drawing on a global survey of researchers that was published today in The Lancet Global Health. Harmful gender norms affect boys and men in many ways, for example by increasing risky behaviours such as substance use or unprotected sex, or by causing negative attitudes and practices towards women. However, research on engaging men and boys has often neglected how to address harmful masculinities in ways that promote gender equality in many SRHR programmes.
