The United States Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade will have immediate, widespread healthcare implications on the full spectrum of reproductive medicine including access to abortion, birth control and emergency contraception, fertility treatments such as IVF, and gender-affirming healthcare. But evidence-based decision making is critical for a modern society. As such, Thieme Group decided to provide free access to important research articles and book chapters from Thieme’s medical journals and books on these topics below, which provide context and deepen understanding of these important issues.
