Jul 21, 2022
  • Description

This report delves into constitutional rights and guarantees in U.S. law that undergird the right to reproductive autonomy—and how those principles, along with related jurisprudence, can strengthen reproductive rights going forward. 

It draws on instructive international and comparative law, scholarship by leading experts in constitutional and human rights law, the transformative work of reproductive justice advocates, and the Center's expertise as the only global legal organization dedicated to protecting and advancing reproductive rights as human rights.
