The final Page Turners meeting of 2022 with a lively discussion on “The Ministry of the Future”

Upcoming Meeting

The Turnaway Study: Ten Years, A Thousand Women, and the Consequences of Having – or Being Denied – an Abortion

By Diana Greene Foster, PhD

Access to family planning services is recognized internationally as a human right and plays an important role in achieving our mission to stabilize global population growth.

With the expertise of a team of scientists, The Turnaway Study highlights stories from women across America, some of whom received abortions, some of whom were turned away. Intrigued to learn how the ability to choose whether, when, and with whom to have children impacts the trajectory of one’s future, Dr. Foster’s study provides important insight for any reader interested in reproductive rights.

Date: Thursday, February 16th
Time: 4pm ET/1pm PT
