Reproductive Control and Oppression of Incarcerated and Detained People

There are many accounts, both told and untold, of incarcerated and detained people being harmed and denied reproductive autonomy while in custody, including coerced sterilization, inequitable access to health care, denial of access to abortion care, shackling during birth and withholding gender affirming care. This reproductive control and oppression is the focus of an October 2020 Equity Forward report.
