In the summer of 2022, the Supreme Court handed down a landmark decision holding that the US Constitution does not confer a right to abortion, overruling both Roe v. Wade (1973) and Planned Parenthood (1992), giving states full power to regulate any aspect of abortion not preempted by federal law. This decision catapulted women’s health and women’s rights to the forefront of discussions in medicine, politics, and the internet. Joining Dana on the episode are four female doctors to discuss today’s landscape of women’s health and how ladies can best prioritize themselves.
