Policy Barriers to Access for Immigrant Women

Tuesday, June 10, 2014
2:00 - 3:00PM
American University Washington College of Law
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington DC


This webinar will discuss the legal barriers and health disparities that immigrant women face in accessing reproductive healthcare, including the legal implications of the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA) and religious refusals, otherwise known as conscience clauses. These politically-motivated laws being introduced at the federal and state levels limit a person’s decision-making ability in the healthcare context and disproportionately impact immigrant women and the LGBTQ immigrant community.
