Care Post-Roe: Documenting cases of poor-quality care since the Dobbs decision, Grossman D., Joffe C., Kaller S., Kimport K., Kinsey E., Lerma K., Morris N, White K, Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), University of California, San Francisco, May 2023

The report provides preliminary findings (September 2022-March 2023) of poor-quality healthcare in 14 states that have banned or severely restricted abortion since the Dobbs decision.  Health care providers describe case details that deviate from the usual standard of  care. The impact is “…increased morbidity, exacerbated pregnancy complications, an inability to provide time-sensitive care, and increased delays in obtaining care for patients in states with abortion bans. This has impacted both patients and providers and has deepened the existing inequities in the healthcare system for people of color.”
